the idea/application of redemption, in it's various definitions, has always interested me. i suppose it fairly closely relates to justice (in that for any debt incurred, there is payment which can reverse the debt). it's been one of those life themes and it can be seen everywhere in nature. the way that nature can repair itself, or even destroy itself in the interest of eventual or overall healing is one instance.
perhaps it has been an interest because i've often found myself in debt. i gave up on the spiritual redeemer awhile ago after realizing that redemption only makes sense if for each different sin, there is a different redemptive act to be applied (and that this was not what most gods were claiming to be able to accomplish).
forgive me. i was steeped in religion against my will for many years, yet i simply cannot understand why people are so happy about a christian redeemer who covers ALL sin and doesn't discriminate. How in god's name does this do any good?
God should be a row of mini gods like the Xs above, only strung on towards infinity.
the axis runs horizontally through the centers of the Xs. each 1/2 X is god, or in other words, CAUSE.
each corresponding 1/2 X is EFFECT.
In this particular case, we could see it as debt (cause)/redemption (effect).
this could be an instance of synesthetic weirdness, but i thought perhaps the idea of redemption overall could be attributed to one quadra or another.
(i am thinking gamma with it's obvious relation to economy).
