2023.06.01 03:02 CatgirlsAndFemboys Attempted Extension of the CCRU Demonology: You Too Can Be a Genius™! (Part 3)

Welcome to all three of the Geniuses™ who read part 1 and part 2 and were either masochistic or Geniusish™ enough to think, "yes, I would like to read a third part of this gibberish." Well then, load up your meth pipes and let's try this.
Naming Demons in Every Possible Numogram
If you've read parts 1 and 2 (if not, go do that), then you will understand this part quite easily. All you need to do is create a suitably demonic sound corresponding to each zone of whatever Numogram you happen to be using. If there are 12 zones, make 12 demonic sounds and assign them, one to each zone.
The derivation of names after this is simple: a demon with net-span 0::12, for example, will have the sounds corresponding to 0 and 12. Ie, if 0 corresponds to a "Xth" sound and 12 corresponds to a "Nlghth" sound, then the two sounds are added into "Xthnlghth" - after this, you edit for euphony, and have the demonic name corresponding to the 0::12 net-span. Ex, we can turn "Xthnlghth" into "Xathnalgaheth", since that is at least pronounceable, and call it a day.
How Many Demons?
Every Numogram has a specific number of demons within it. The original base-10 Numogram has 45 demons, but why? Easy - take the triangular number of the highest-numbered zone, and you have the total number of demons. Ex, the highest-numbered zone in the base-10 Numogram is 9, and the 9th triangular number is 45. The base-12 Numogram will instead have 66 demons, while the base-8 Numogram will have 28 demons.
Demon Types
In higher-numbered Numograms, you may encounter exotic regions. The Plex region and the Warp region are always singular, but the Torque region is sometimes multiple. Ex, in the Base-28 Numogram, there are 2 separate Torque regions. This leads to new demonic types, or doesn't. That is, you can restrict the Amphidemons to remain two in type, Plex-Amphidemons and Warp-Amphidemons, or you can further split them into Plex-Torque-I-Amphidemons, Plex-Torque-II-Amphidemons, Warp-Torque-I-Amphidemons, and Warp-Torque-II-Amphidemons for the case of two separate Torque regions. Likewise with Cyclic Chronodemons - they can be plain old Cyclic Chronodemons or they can be Cyclic Torque-I Chronodemons and Cyclic Torque-II Chronodemons. Any demons connected to the Torque region(s) can be split in this way, or left with the original designations.
Demonic pitches correspond to a key formed by the reduction of the sum of both digits in a demon's net-span. (See part 2). There are only three rigid categorizations that will apply to all demons in all Numograms. The first rule is that any demons with net-spans that reduce to the number of the highest-numbered zone (always the number of zones minus one), will have Null-0 pitch. Likewise, the demons with net-spans that sum and reduce to 1 will have Ana-1 pitch, and the demons with net-spans that sum and reduce to whatever number is 1 lower than the number Null demons sum and reduce to will have Cth-1 pitch. The number of an Ana pitch rises the large the sum-reduction is, and the number of a Cth pitch rises the lower the sum-reduction is. Sum reductions, except for the exceptions outlines, will be unevenly split between Cth and Ana pitches. Since the exact pitch determination relies on the subdecadence attributions of the demons, we must address that mess first.
Arbitrary Subdecadence
Subdecadence extended into alternative Numograms is, put politely, a Hellish fucking mess. First, note that all pairs of syzygetic zones on any Numogram are a "Pylon." Use this to determine the number of pylons, which is then the base-number of the Numogram divided by 2. Since you will have a variable number of pylons and demons, and the number of demons with the appropriate types will be difference, you will need to set up a completely new card game, with many more cards, corresponding to all subtypes of Cyclic Chronodemons you might have to deal with, all subtypes of Warp Amphidemons you might have to deal with, and all subtypes of Plex Amphidemons you might have to deal with. Since these will be variable in number, you will need a variable number of cards in your hypothetical game. The "hook" will determine the rite-type and the pitch-type will be determined by the relationship between the two cards which share that rite-type and position - see part 2 for explication of this. Generalizing these rules is not aided by example, since every Numogram will have a unique setup of its version of Subdecadence, generally following the same rules. Since examples will not be useful, I will not provide them. The last rules that likely hold across all versions of subdecadence are the fact that there are four suits, and the ordering of demon types within each suit is Cyclic Chronodemons, then Warp Amphidemons, then Plex Amphidemons. (See part 2.) This, unfortunately, means that there is no general rule that we can use to decide the pitch-polarity of demons that might have Ana or Cth pitch, you just have to individually check using the rules of part 2 applied for your specific alternative Numogram and subdecadence setup.
Rites and Omens
Rite-numbers are determined by the possible ways of traveling through the Numogram to get from the first number of a demon's net-span to the second number of the net-span, and every way to get from the second net-span digit to the first net-span digit, without circling over the same territory - travel can happen over major or minor flows (see part 1 and part 2). A rite that travels from the first number to the second is a Major rite, while a rite that travels from the second number to the first is a minor rite. Chaotic Xenodemons sometimes have [?] rites, as there is no way to travel between a Plex and a Warp region without traveling backwards along paths, which is forbidden: All rites must travel with paths, and not against them. The actual content of the described rite or omen is largely random. We can fix this by merely stating that every zone should be tied to a handful of vague symbols, and that the vague symbols of every zone used in a rite-number should contribute to the description of the rite. Whether they are rites or omens is arbitrary.
Unsatisfying Conclusion
If you've followed so far, you are likely dissatisfied with this probable conclusion to the series - the fact of the matter is that CCRU demonology, while being fully generalizable to all possible Numograms, does so in differing ways for each possible Numogram. As such, it is impossible, after 2 months of grappling with attempts to write this post, to write a guide to generalizing the CCRU demonology to all Numograms which is not simply a repeat of the guidelines of part 2. If there is interest in a part 4, I am perfectly happy to write it - but unless people suggest specific topics about the CCRU and Numograms for me to address, and they prove to be addressable, this is likely to be the final, unsatisfying entry in the Genius™ Essaymatic™ Universe™.

2023.06.01 02:10 TravelersDrone RiteAid requesting PA despite me telling them I am paying out of pocket. Not T2

Anyone else experience this? I don’t understand why they need the PA. I was told the other day that they need PA, I said I wasn’t going through insurance and I was told the price, which I agreed to pay. They said it would be ready next day. Today, 3 days later, I called to find out the status. They said a PA is needed. I explained again I’m paying out of pocket, they said the prescriber needs to verify it. Ok, but they were the ones who ordered it, why do they need to verify it? It doesn’t really make sense to me. Anyone else deal with this? I told my provider, who I’m sure will be willing to do it. I just don’t understand why it’s needed.

2023.05.31 18:33 incomprehensibilitys This ONE fact renders Mormonism 100% false without any possible counter argument

If the Book of Mormon was translated as Mormon history claims, even small errors in the text should not exist. There should be no need to make nearly 6000 changes to the modern text, even if these changes are grammatical and insignificant. Mormon history does not allow for even small errors in the text, based on the very manner in which Mormonism claims Joseph translated the text:
Joseph Smith would put the seer stone into a hat, and put his face in the hat, drawing it closely around his face to exclude the light; and in the darkness the spiritual light would shine. A piece of something resembling a parchment would appear, and on that appeared the writing. One character at a time would appear and under it was the interpretation in English. Brother Joseph would read off the English to Oliver Cowdery, who was his principal scribe, and when it was written down and repeated to brother Joseph to see if it was correct, then it would disappear, and another character with the interpretation would appear.” (Martin Harris, “Address to All Believers in Christ”, Richmond, Missouri, 1887, p.12)
The translation was just as it was engraven on the plates precisely in the language then used… The translation of the characters appeared on the Urim and Thummim, sentence by sentence, and as soon as one was correctly translated the next appeared.” (Martin Harris, The Myth of Manu-Script Found, p.71 and p. 91)
Martin Harris related an incident that occured during the time that he wrote that portion of the translation of the Book of Mormon which he was favored to write direct from the mouth of the Prophet Joseph Smith. He said that the Prophet possessed a seer stone, by which he was enabled to translate as well as from the Urim and Thummim, and for convenience he then used the seer stone, Martin explained the translation as follows: By aid of the seer stone, sentences would appear and were read by the Prophet and written by Martin and when finished he would say “Written,” and if correctly written that sentence would disappear and another appear in its place, but if not written correctly it remained until corrected, so that the translation was just as it was engraven on the plates, precisely in the language then used.” (Edward Stevenson, “One of the Three Witnesses,” reprinted from Deseret News, 30 Nov. 1881 in Millennial Star, 44 , 6 Feb. 1882, pp. 86-87).
Now the way he translated was he put the urim and thummim into his hat and darkened his eyes then he would take a sentance and it would appear in brite roman letters then he would tell the writer and he would write it then that would go away the next sentence would come and so on. But if it was not spelt rite it would not go away till it was rite, so we see it was marvelous. Thus was the hol (whole) translated.” (Spelling as in the original cited in Dean Jessee, ‘Joseph Knight’s Recollection of Early Mormon History,’ BYU Studies, vol. 17:1, Autumn 1976, p. 35)
When my husband was translating the Book of Mormon, I wrote a part of it, as he dictated each sentence, word for word, and when he came to proper names he could not pronounce, or long words, he spelled them out, and while I was writing them, if I made a mistake in spelling, he would stop me and correct my spelling, although it was impossible for him to see how I was writing them down at the time.” (Emma Smith, Edmund Briggs interview, 1856)
(The Book of Mormon is) the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.” (History of the Church, Vol. IV, p.461)

I stopped at a Rite Aid store today as we have many in Michigan and Googled their stock. Turns out RAD is down nearly 70% for their 1 year. No mention of BK. Two things that caught my attention: 1) 6B quarterly average revenue and 2) 100M market cap.. BBBY which was short squeezed multiple times is officially going bankrupt and currently has a market cap of 120M. How come we're not jumping on this RAD? Isn't a smaller market cap stock easier to short squeeze or what am I missing...

2023.05.31 00:52 KonnectKing The Rosary for Everybody who doesn't know what it is. (psssst.... it's Scriptural!!)

If you are curious or Catholic, you can go here everyday and pray the Rosary with others online at the same time.
Here's a history [ ]of using strings of knots or beads as an aid to meditation and prayer in both Apostolic Rites - Roman and Eastern Orthodox. I like this: "Our everyday name of beads for it is simply the Old Saxon word bede (a prayer)"
Classically, the Rosary is a certain form of praying where we recall successively in the mystery of the Incarnation and our Redemption. The prayers are all Scripturally based and appealing to Mary to pray for us is, too. (See the wedding at Cana).
NOW - you don't have to pray the classic prayers. I often pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, essentially:
On a large beads:
Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
On the ten smaller beads For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
There are opening and closing prayers and such. Catholics often add between the sets of 10 beads,
"Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of Your mercy."
Or the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel at the end:
"Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen."
Here are the Mysteries. Originally, the Rosary was popularized by those who could not read, afford Bibles if they could, or get to a church more than once or twice a year to remember and worship Jesus Christ every single day.

Joyful Mystery of the Rosary Monday & Saturday
The Annunciation of the Lord to Mary
(Mary is chosen to be the mother of Jesus.)
The Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth
Elizabeth recognizes Mary as the mother of our Lord.
The Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ
Jesus is born and laid in a manger.
The Presentation of our Lord
Jesus is presented in the Temple of Jerusalem.
Finding Jesus in the Temple at age 12
Jesus is found discussing God's laws in the temple.

Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary Tuesday & Friday
The Agony of Jesus in the Garden
Jesus prays when confronted with the sins of the world.
The Scourging at the Pillar
Jesus is whipped before His execution.
Jesus is Crowned with Thorns
Jesus is mocked with a painful crown of thorns.
Jesus Carried the Cross
Jesus carries the weight of our sins to His crucifixion.
The Crucifixion of our Lord
Jesus Christ dies to save all mankind.

Glorious Mystery of the Rosary Wednesday & Sunday
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Jesus rises triumphant over death.
The Ascension of Jesus to Heaven
As Jesus ascends, He gives us a special task.
The Descent of the Holy Ghost
At Pentecost the Church is born.
The Assumption of Mary into Heaven
The Virgin Mary is gloriously assumed into heaven.
Mary is Crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth
Mary is honored above all creatures.

Luminous Mystery of the Rosary Thursday
The Baptism in the Jordan
God proclaims Jesus is His Son.
The Wedding at Cana
Jesus performs a surprising miracle at a wedding.
The Proclamation of the Kingdom
Jesus calls us to do something important.
The Transfiguration
Jesus is gloriously transformed.
The Institution of the Eucharist
Jesus shares His Body and Blood for our salvation.
Now the Big One!!! What we pray to Mary on the smaller beads:
Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our deaths.
Anyone can pray the Rosary. Add your own prayers. The point is, you devote a certain time every day to devotion to God and Jesus Christ. You think of Him and your relationship to Him and His love and sacrifice for you every day.
Lastly: the Orthodox use prayer knotted ropes differently and I hope one of the Orthodox will post a thread about that and the prayers they say. I would very much like to have a prayer rope. I don't think Jesus would mind.

2023.05.30 17:10 holleringgenzer Question: How open are Bahais to an agnostic view?

Out of all the religions, I do beleive from what I've learned that the Baha'i faith is the most compatiable pairing with agnostic beleifs. But how much is that exactly? Like, would any Baha'is be offended? I feel the need to explain myself, I will. I was raised catholic, but I started having doubts. Not even in the existence of a higher power, but the way the spiritual world was organized. Christianity doesn't reallly make that much sense. At least not compared to everything else out there. That wasn't the tipping point for me though. It was 2020. I saw the utter hate but also distrust of science propagated by christians. Pretty much all the vaccine/COVID deniers and racists were christian. I was already aware of Christians and other religious people persecuting or wanting to persecute LGBT+ people. I had been lead to beleive religion was hateful. and I declared myself atheist, just to show soverignty from the christian ideals of theocrats in the political scene. Upon strangers learning I was atheist, they would say something like "It takes as much or more faith to be an atheist as it does to be a christian". My rebuttal to that was always "Even if there is A god you still need to prove christianity's vision is correct. There's so much more out there. Judaism before you and Islam after. And that's just the abrahamic religions. (Before I knew about the Baha'i faith) . There's also Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Jainism, Animist religions often found in indigenous people. And the way you might suggest your god is real because of unlikely events, many other religions have their own divinity-affirming events. That split rock in Arabia, the fact of individuals being lucky in extraordinary ways despite a lack of christian beleifs, etc." Then in early 2023, I found the Baha'i faith. I was curious, so I dug in my heels and educated myself on the Baha'i faith.

So, here's my findings. A religion that doesn't tolerate, but CALLS for racial, gender, and wealth equality. CALLS to unite humanity, and perhaps even use a mutual language, directly pointing out Esperanto.(As an Esperanto speaker, this is very effort-affirming) Now look- I am well aware that Christianity and Islam both suggests that those with wealth should use some of it to aid the poor, but Islam has those other shortcomings and is being maintained by forceful governments, and Christians have largely forgotten about helping the poor, you barely see any such in the United States thanks to our unique individuality. In fact, despite churches being tax free, tithe is still a thing. And in many cases, it's not actually used for good causes. In fact, espicially at american megachurches, they might go to preachers pockets. One of them is literally halfway to being a billionare as a preacher. THAT is absurd. I don't know about Europe and Latin America, but I doubt it's THAT much better. It's almost as if the messages of Christianity and Islam as revealed to their respective prophets have stood past their lone shelf life, or are going rancid. As if opening up the way for something new. Than I learned about the Baha'i faith's concept of "Progressive Realevation". Again, one of my biggest doubts about religion in general is that there's still so many other religious beleifs around the world, and even if they have common beleifs, they have the tendency to denounce other religions as "false", leaving us not able to know if there is any true religion. But the Baha'i faith solves this by saying "They are all true, they were each created and sent down to man at diffrent times and different places to slowly educate man spiritually. I was looking for YouTube videos explaining the Baha'i faith, and one of them offered me an anology. It posed God as a teacher or school, and man as the students. Suggesting that God is teaching man a little bit at a time, slowly - because that is the way schools teach their students. You do not put a 1st grader into high school and expect them to learn high school material, and test on it sucessfully. Instead, you give them an easier start and progressively let them climb grades, slowly learning harder material and having harder tests to correspond. The lessons change in depth, detail, and theme with very grade. Your future lessons would not necessarily disprove your past lessons, but are surely more advanced amd so have to cover different areas. I'm still not convinced there is a god, but if there is, I beleive the Baha'i faith has the most accurate understanding of the way spirituality works in the context of the world and history. Regarding the previous points of Christianity and Islam not being able to stand on their own, I have this understanding that as the latest relevation of God, the Baha'i community is currently the truest to the principles of their faith. I think the biggest part of this is that it emphasizes religion as a consensual agreement/understanding. Children are not allowed to be deemed Baha'i until their consent at the age of spiritual maturity, and the religion is against prostelitizing. Baha'is clearly care much more about spreading their values than spreading their religion. Not to say the religion doesn't have problems, it's a shame about women not being able to serve in the Universal House of Justice. But I geniunely, geniunely like this religion as a concept and what it stands for. Currently I'm labelling myself as a "Baha'i agnostic." But is the label even ok? Like would I be seen as someone without loyalty, or would Baha'is generally approve of an agnostic sharing their beleifs? I'm not really asking to "join" the religion, because I'm aware that there is no more rite of passage than just sharing your information to join the community's information network. As someone who's called myself an atheist for the past 3 years, this is a notable shift...Again, I'm supposed to be pursuing an independent investigation of truth, but it's really nice to make use of the knowledge and opinions of over the people, as long as I contemplate with them as opposed to submitting to them. I have no more to say. Give me your opinions.

2023.05.30 17:09 autotldr Sen. Elizabeth Warren probes abortion access amid states’ patchwork plans

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 53%. (I'm a bot)
WASHINGTON - Sen. Elizabeth Warren is launching a fresh round of questioning on states' limits to abortion rights as a battle on medication abortion hangs in the balance at a federal court.
Warren and three other Democratic senators sent letters late last week to five major health care worker and pharmacy groups interrogating how last year's U.S. Supreme Court decision reversing national abortion rights has affected health care access and providers' treatment of patients.
Warren does not chair a committee in charge of health care policy, but Democrats on the Senate HELP and Finance committees have echoed her concern about access to the abortion pill mifepristone and restrictive abortion policies.
"As we approach one year since this radical Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, we must confront the devastating effects that state abortion bans and worsening restrictions are having on women across the country, as well as new threats to medication abortion that are contributing to harmful misinformation about the drug's safety and availability," Warren said in a statement to STAT. Besides access to mifepristone - which is in limbo with a Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals case - Warren asked about confusion over the slightly less effective abortion drug misoprostol.
Some patients and doctors have reported difficulty accessing the FDA-approved drug amid nationwide confusion over the legality of abortion medication.
Major pharmacy chains Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS signaled they would register to dole out the drugs, but Walgreens was soon caught in controversy over its decision not to register in 21 states, including four where abortion remains legal.

2023.05.30 09:44 JoshAsdvgi THE CLEVER NUMSKULL


(MICMAC: Rand, Legends of the Micmacs, )

Three brothers lived together.
They had no sisters, and their mother was sick.
The youngest was supposed to be a silly fellow, and was always doing outrageous things. One day they killed a pig.
The two older brothers went to fetch salt, and told the youngest one to remain and watch the house, and take care of their mother and the pig.
They said they were going to salt down the pork, and keep it for the long days.
After they were gone, he went out and found some men at work, and told them that if there was a man there named Longdays, he had a pig for him.
One of them declared that that was his name; forthwith the pig was delivered to him, and he carried it off.
By and by the other brothers arrived, and wondered what had become of the pig.
"Why, Longdays has been here and taken it away!
Did not you say it was to be kept for Mr. Longdays?"
"Oh, you blockhead! we told you it was to be kept for ourselves when the days become long next summer."
Some time after this, Coolnajoo was sent to buy a horse.
He made the purchase, and brought the horse home.
But there was a long avenue, lined by trees and bushes, extending from the highway down to the house; and when he came to the head of this lane, he gravely told the horse that this was the road, and bade him go on directly to the house.
Saying this, he removed the halter; and the horse kicked up his heels and made for home. The boy arrived home, wondering at the stupidity of the horse; and on relating the case to his brothers, they wondered at his stupidity.
"You numskull!" they exclaimed, "you can never do anything right.
Why did you not ride him down the lane?" "Oh, I will do better next time," he promised.
So, as the old mother got no better, they sent him to find and bring home a woman to assist in nursing her and in taking care of the house.
He took his bridle and started.
He succeeded in his expedition, and the woman came with him all quiet and kindly till they reached the head of the lane; but there and then he made an attempt to put the bridle on her head, and assured her that she had to carry him on her back, and walk on all fours down to the house.
Persisting in his determination, the terrified woman screamed, broke from her persecutor, and ran.
Chopfallen and sad, he went into the house.
What was his trouble? they asked him.
"Why! I attempted to bring her home in the way you directed; but she screamed and tore away from me, and crying went back, as hard as she could go.--
"Oh, you abominable fool!" they exclaimed; "was that the way to treat a woman?
You should have taken her by the arm, and occasionally given her a kiss." "Ah, well!" he cried, "I shall know better next time."
The next time he was sent for a pig.
He led the pig all right until he came to the lane.
He then tried to make the pig walk on his hind legs; and when the terrified animal squealed and kicked, he attempted to conciliate it by kissing it; but he received such a return from the tusks of his captive as made the blood flow, and caused him to let go his grip,--and poor piggy went off home at the top of his speed.
Poor Coolnajoo returned crestfallen to his home, to relate his adventures, and to be blamed and lectured for the hundredth time for his outrageous stupidity.
His next expedition was for a tub of hog's-lard.
This he purchased; but on his way home he passed over a portion of road that was dried and cracked by the sun.
"Oh, my old grandfather!" he exclaimed, "what a terribly sore back you have got,--so naked and dry!
You shall have my lard for salve, and 1 will rub it on."
So saying, he began spreading the lard over the dry road; and when it was all gone, he went home.
"Why have you not brought the lard?"
"Oh, dear me! I came across a poor old man lying in the road with his back all sore and cracked; and I pitied him, and spread the lard over him."
To this the brothers made no objection until they ascertained the truth of the case; when another attempt was made to teach him a lesson, and with the usual success.
His sixth expedition was in quest of a quantity of needles.
These were purchased, but on his way home he passed a newly reaped field of grain.
He looked at the stubble, and perceived the holes in the top; he was sure that when the rain should fall, the water would fill all those holes, and concluded that it would be a very benevolent act to stop them up.
This would be a capital end to which to apply his needles.
So he opened the packages, and carefully placed one in every straw; and when the supply was exhausted, many remained undoctored.
"Alas, poor things!" he cried, "I cannot help you any more, as my stock is out."
So he went home without his needles.
Afterward he was sent for some red flannel.
Passing a graveyard on his way home, he looked at the crosses, and took them for poor old penitents kneeling in the cold with outstretched arms, and carefully tore up his roll of red flannel and covered their poor shivering shoulders.
After this the two other brothers went together to town to make some purchases, and left him to take care of the sick mother.
They charged him to give her drink, and especially to wash her face.
He obeyed the directions, but supposed he must wash her face as he had seen her wash clothes,--by thrusting them into boiling water.
So he set on the great pot; and when the water was boiling, he took up the old woman and thrust her head into it, and held her there.
When he took her out, she was dead, and her lips were contracted to a grin, which he affected to mistake for laughter'. and placed her back in the bed, and leaped and laughed at her quiet and pleasant countenance.
He ran to meet his brothers, and told them that their mother had not been so quiet nor looked so well this long time.
She had not stirred nor spoken, and she was laughing all the time.
They went in, and were horror-stricken. "Oh, you outrageous simpleton! what have you done?
You have killed your mother.
We shall all be executed for murder."
But now Coolnajoo began to exhibit his shrewdness, and soon became as clever as he had hitherto been simple.
"Never you fear," said he; "we will turn the incident to good account, we will make some money out of it.
Wait you here; I will run for the priest."
So off he ran posthaste, and informed the priest that his mother was dying, and requested him to come with all haste, to perform over her the indispensable rite of extreme unction. The priest started immediately; but Coolnajoo outran him, and took his dead mother and placed her against the door, inside.
The priest reached the house, burst the door open, and tumbled the old woman over. Coolnajoo sprang to raise her.
Alas! she was dead. "Oh!" he exclaimed, wringing his hands and weeping, "you have killed our mother!"
All three gathered round, and the horrified priest did not know what to do.
They threatened to accuse him of the murder.
He finally succeeded in pacifying them, and gave them a whole handful of money to hush up the matter and say nothing about it.
The development of his shrewdness proceeded.
The two other brothers went away one day, and left the place in his charge.
Among other occupations he had to tend the pigs.
These he sold; but in order to cheat his brothers, he cut off their tails and took them down to a quagmire near the shore, and stuck them all up in the sand.
When they came back and inquired for the pigs, he told them they had broken out of the pen and rushed down toward the shore, and had sunk in the quagmire.
They went down to see; and sure enough, there they all were, just the tips of their tails sticking above the ground.
They seized hold of the tails, and tried to draw up the porkers; but the tails broke, and down into the mire sank the bodies, as they believed, and could not be found.
Soon his pranks became unbearable, and the brothers resolved to make away with him. They concluded to drown him.
So they tied him up in a bag, and took him down below high water mark and buried him,--not deep, however,--and left him to be drowned when the tide came in.
They returned; and he soon heard the "Uh! uh! uh!" of a drove of hogs, and called lustily for them to come to his aid.
If they would uncover and untie him, he would lead them to a place where they could feast on chickweed to their hearts' content.
The hogs, attracted by the noise, approached the spot.
Their noses were soon thrust deep into the soft earth.
The bag was soon reached, and instinct alone was sufficient to pull it out; and they soon removed the string,--when up jumped Coolnajoo, who seized one of his deliverers, transferred him to the bag, and the bag to the hole, drove the others away to the field of chickweed, where they were kept busy till the tide returned and covered the spot where he was supposed to lie.
In due time the tide receded, and compunction returned to the brothers' hearts; they repaired to the spot and dug up the bag, mournfully chanting, "Our poor brother is dead." Astonishment seized them when, on opening the bag, there, instead of the brother's corpse, was a dead pig.
Meanwhile Coolnajoo had waited at a distance from the spot until his brothers went down to the shore to look for him.
When they returned, he was astride the ridge-pole, laughing at them.
They made another attempt to kill him.
This time they planned better; they would take him to a waterfall and toss him in above, and let him be dashed to pieces in going over the rapids.
So they tied him up in a bag again, placed it across a pole, and started for the waterfall.
They became hungry on the way, and placed him by the side of the road, and went to get some dinner.
While they were gone, a drover came by; and seeing the bag, he went up and gave it a kick. "Halloa!" he exclaimed, "what is all this?"
Coolnajoo replied, and informed the drover that he and his brothers were on a money-hunting expedition; concealed in this bag, so as not to excite suspicion, he was to be taken to a certain place where they would all make their fortunes.
He gave such a glowing account of the matter, and with such apparent truthfulness and sincerity, that the drover was deceived, and offered him a whole drove of cattle and sheep for his chance in the money-hunting speculation.
The bargain was struck, and the parties exchanged places.
But Coolnajoo gave his substitute some cautions:
"You must be cautious not to speak, or the cheat will be discovered; my brothers must not mistrust that it is not I.
By and by you will hear the roar of a waterfall; do not be frightened.
Before lowering you to the place where you are to find the money, they may give you two or three swings.
You must keep still, and not speak; and after that you can have it all your own way."
So saying, he went on to the market with the drove.
The brothers came back to the bag. "Are you there?" they asked.
No answer.
But they saw that all was right, placed the bag on the pole, the pole on their shoulders, and moved on.
When they came to the waterfall, they approached as near as they could, and then gave him three swings in order to send him as far out as possible; and just as they let go, the terrified man sang out.
They were startled at the voice; it sounded like a stranger's voice.
They returned home, and shortly after their brother arrived with his pockets full of money,--the proceeds of his drove of cattle and sheep.
So they concluded to share the spoil and remain together.
But one night a band of robbers was seen advancing upon them, and they ran for their lives. Coolnajoo was the last to leave the house and the others told him to "bring the door to after him,"--meaning, of course, that he shall shut the door.
He obeyed to the letter,--took the door off the hinges, and carefully brought it after him. They made for the woods, and took shelter in a tree,--Coolnajoo dragging the door up after him, and holding it carefully all the while.
The robbers came up to the same tree, kindled a fire under it, cooked and ate their dinner, and then began counting and dividing their gold.
While this process was going on, Coolnajoo got tired of holding the door, and dropped it down among them.
It fell with a noise that terrified the robbers, who supposed that it had fallen from the sky; so they ran off as fast as their legs could carry them, and left everything behind,--gold, food, and dishes.
Down scrambled our heroes, and gathered all up and ran; finally they came to a house, where they remained all night.
They divided the money; but Coolnajoo claimed the largest share, as he declared that it was through his efforts that it had been obtained.
The next night they called and stayed all night at another strange house.
Coolnajoo became thirsty, and hunted around for a drink.
Feeling carelessly about, he thrust his two hands into a pitcher, and could not withdraw them.
He went out-of-doors, and looked around for something to strike the pitcher against, in order to break it.
At length he saw what seemed in the darkness to be a white rock.
He gave the pitcher a smart blow in order to free his hands; when, alas! he had struck a young woman in the head, and killed her with the blow.
At the sight of what he had done, he was terribly frightened, and called up his brothers.
He told them what had happened, and proposed immediate flight.
They all departed; and his brothers, fearing that Coolnajoo would ultimately get them into difficulties from which they would be unable to extricate themselves, separated from him. By mutual consent the partnership was dissolved.
They went each his own way.
Coolnajoo was bent on making money, and an opportunity occurred soon.
He kept his eye on the robbers, and saw them going out to bury a dead child; he watched to see where they deposited the body, and also followed them unseen to their retreat.
When night came, he took up the corpse they had buried, and went up to their house.
The window was open, and he looked in; they were busy counting and dividing their ill-gotten booty.
Piles of money covered the table, and he heard all the accounts of their expeditions.
All at once he sent the dead baby flying in among them,--which so frightened them that they took to their heels and left all behind.
He leaped in, gathered all the money, and left for home.
He now determined to settle, and to this end built a small house.
One day a heavy rain-storm came on; and just at nightfall two weary priests, wet to the skin, called and requested a night's lodging.
This he refused, as he had no accommodations for strangers.
They pleaded hard, and offered him a large reward; this he accepted, and kept them until morning, but managed to exact a still further contribution from them before their departure.

2023.05.30 00:32 Djh1982 Mary Co-Redeemer?

The title is self-explanatory but I felt that the topic deserved its own post.
The Catholic Church has “dogmas” and “doctrines”. A doctrine can change but a dogma cannot. The Four Marian Dogmas of the Catholic Faith are:
1. Mother of God
2. Immaculate Conception
3. Perpetual Virginity
4. Assumption
—but today I wanted to talk about the 5th one that doesn’t exist: Co-Redemptrix.
While I was not able to pinpoint exactly when this title first began circulating(that’s how deep this rabbit hole goes) what we do know is that it seems to be of medieval origin[5th to 15th centuries] and began as rather a “synthesis” of various patristic and medieval statements:
“Just as the human race was bound over to death through a virgin, so was it saved through a virgin: the scale was balanced — a virgin’s disobedience by a virgin’s obedience”
St.Ambrose of Milan (339-397):
“Let us not be astonished that the Lord, who came to save the world, began his work in Mary, so that she, by whom the salvation of all was being readied, would be the first to receive from her own child its fruits”
St.Jerome (343-420)
“Death came through Eve, life through Mary”
I could go on(really), but you get the idea.
Obviously there is a way to read these kinds of statements that does not compel one to conclude the title of “Co-Redeemer” and I’m sure some of you OCD types already started doing it in your brain(I’m the same way, you’re not alone). Nevertheless, it was ultimately popularized by the Franciscans and resisted by the Dominicans but by the 16th century the movement to make it a doctrine had all but died out.
The term Co-Redemptrix enjoyed a brief resurgence after the 16th century, being used by Pope Leo XIII in his 1894 encyclical on the rosary “IUCUNDA SEMPER EXPECTATIONE”, in which he writes:
“For in the Rosary all the part that Mary took as our co-Redemptress comes to us..."
It then received Papal sanction under Pope St. Pius X(1903-1914) by his approval of its use in a decree of the Congregation of Rites concerning the Feast of the Seven Dolors:
“the devotion of the Sorrowful Mother may increase and the piety of the faithful and their gratitude toward the merciful Co-Redemptrix of the human race may intensify.”
His successor, Benedict XV(1914-1922) in his decree to the Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office (section on indulgences), Sunt quos amor, June 26, 1913 praises the custom of adding to the name of Jesus the name of ‘His Mother, **our coredemptor, the blessed Mary’.
Now from there things get a bit iffy because Pope Pius XI says in Explorata res(1923):
”The Virgin participated with Jesus Christ in the very painful act of the redemption”
But “participating” with Christ in his act of redemption does not really equal “Mary is a Co-Redeemer” and this is—in all actuality—a repeating of the same kinds of patristic and medieval statements noted at the beginning of this post which could themselves be read in such a way so as not add-up to “Mary Co-Redeemer”.
One thing that has to be addressed is the prefix “co”. We use this prefix most commonly about the people we work with. We call these people “co-workers”. My boss can be properly called a “co-worker” but that does not imply that we are “equals”. What this means is that in no way did the title of Co-Redemptrix ever mean to it’s proponents that Mary was “equal” to God and thus she also still needed a Savior.
Some words are made feminine by altering the suffix to be -ix. Examples:
dominator → dominatrix executor → executrix rector → rectrix
The prefix “Co” and suffix “Ix” means “woman with the redeemer” or “alongside the redeemer”. It therefore never meant that Mary “is” herself a redeemer or that Christ did not accomplish redemption on his own.
To quote St.Maximillian Kolbe the title:
”…denotes Mary’s regular and unique sharing (although subordinate and dependent) with Her Son in the saving work of redemption for the human family.”
Well, no. To cite the late Pope Benedict XVI, who was still only a cardinal at the time:
“….the formula “Co-redemptrix” departs to too great an extent from the language of Scripture and of the Fathers and therefore gives rise to misunderstandings. ...Everything comes from Him [Christ], as the Letter to the Ephesians and the Letter to the Colossians, in particular, tell us; Mary, too, is everything she is through Him. The word “Co-redemptrix” would obscure this origin. A correct intention being expressed in the wrong way.”—Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, God and the World: A Conversion with Peter Seewald. Ignatius Press, San Francisco, 2002, p. 306
In other words, I would actually agree with St.Kolbe’s description of what the title means but the title itself is what is actually problematic, as Pope Benedict XVI pointed out. To cite him one final time:
”A correct intention being expressed in the wrong way.”
Like Benedict, I don’t think it is problematic to state that Mary “uniquely participated in Christ’s mission of redeeming humanity” so long as we are clear that the mission was his alone. She was just playing a unique role in it. In fact, that is already how the Catholic Church understands Mary’s role in salvation history and we don’t need a title that says that with the added benefit of also conveying a sense of heresy.
Yes, there is a LONG back and forth history regarding this title by a few fringe theologians within the Catholic Church and a few(brief) pontificates(out of 266). It has NEVER been a dogmatic teaching of the Catholic faith, nor shall it ever be, and to quote Pope Francis when asked to comment on this title which has never had sticking power within Catholic teaching:
”Let’s not get lost in foolishness”—Dec.2019
To cite the Ecumenical[read:infallible] Council of Trent:
“…that the saints, who reign together with Christ, offer up their own prayers to God for men; that it is good and useful suppliantly to invoke them, and to have recourse to their prayers, aid, (and) help for obtaining benefits from God, through His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who is our alone Redeemer and Saviour…”

2023.05.29 23:39 JoshAsdvgi The Burial of Dead

The Burial of Dead

The Burial of Dead

Burial customs varied widely from tribe to tribe.
Indians disposed of their dead in a variety of ways.
Arctic tribes, for example, simply left their dead on the frozen ground for wild animals to devour.
The ancient mound-building Hopewell societies of the Upper Midwest, by contrast, placed the dead in lavishly furnished tombs.
Southeastern tribes practiced secondary bone burial.
They dug up their corpses, cleansed the bones, and then reburied them.
The Northeast Iroquois, before they formed the Five Nations Confederation in the seventeenth century, saved skeletons of the deceased for a final mass burial that included furs and ornaments for the dead spirits' use in the afterlife.

Northwest coastal tribes put their dead in mortuary cabins or canoes fastened to poles. Further south, California tribes practiced cremation.

In western mountain areas tribes often deposited their dead in caves or fissures in the rocks.

Nomadic tribes in the Great Plains region either buried their dead, if the ground was soft, or left them on tree platforms or on scaffolds.

Central and South Atlantic tribes embalmed and mummified their dead.
But during outbreaks of smallpox or other diseases leading to the sudden deaths of many tribe members, survivors hurriedly cast the corpses into a mass grave or threw them into a river.

Rites among Native Americans tended to focus on aiding the deceased in their afterlife. Some tribes left food and possessions of the dead person in or near the gravesite.
Other groups, such as the Nez Perce of the Northwest, sacrificed wives, slaves, and a favorite horse of a dead warrior.
Among many tribes, mourners, especially widows, cut their hair.
Some Native Americans discarded personal ornaments or blacked their faces to honor the dead.
Others gashed their arms and legs to express their grief.

California tribes engaged in wailing, staged long funeral ceremonies, and held an anniversary mourning ritual after one or two years.
Southwest Hopi wailed on the day of the death, and cried a year later.

Some Southwestern tribes, especially the Apache and Navajo, feared the ghosts of the deceased who were believed to resent the living.
The nomadic Apache buried corpses swiftly and burned the deceased's house and possessions.
The mourning family purified itself ritually and moved to a new place to escape their dead family member's ghost.
The Navajo also buried their dead quickly with little ceremony.
Navajos exposed to a corpse had to undergo a long and costly ritual purification treatment.
