What do you think about Marcus aurelius and stoicism? Stoicism is banned after Christianity spread to Rome.
My response to this question:
I read his book Meditations. Upon the study of Stoicism or other claimed ancient philosophy from the Hellenic world I note all mention of actual spiritual practise are removed and what is left is a basic type of opinion based mentalism that always has a strange amount of Christian ideology and nothing else. Once in awhile something gets thought like one of Plato's dialogues he mentions the pineal gland and serpentary system in the spine. But the Republic reads like the basis of the Communist manifesto which is the doctrine of life for Christians in the New Testament and he then promotes the Christian ideals of celibacy, wonder who put that in there.
But the ancient Greeks lived in an openly spiritual society with mantra chants on the pillars on their buildings and spiritual knowledge taught openly at the Gymnasium the same places the Philosophers gathered. The Hellenist spiritual system of Isosophia was the entire culture and philosophers were those with ascended serpents that is the meaning of the name and symbol.Yet somehow when I read the mainstream histories and theories of ancient Greek philosophers and philosophies….. Strangely all of that is missing and we are supposed to believe and celebrate Socrates for hatred of the Gods and cultural warfare on the Greeks and believe he was murdered by superstitious Pagan morons. Why don't we have anything left of Aristotle but foot notes... The Christian church destroyed all the main works of Aristotle and all the Greek Philosophers after destroying all their schools to wipe out all spiritual knowledge. Then as they admit rewrote the rest to suit the Christian ideology. The tales of Socrates is also a Catholic church myth to attack Hellenism while creating anti-Hellenic heroic mythos its typical Christian propaganda. This is why when any Catholic scholar or Priest starts speaking Greek philosophy it magically sounds like Christianity without Christ. And the church claims all of this proves that the "good goys" or noble Pagan philosophers paved the way for the acceptance and coming of the belief that existence is made by a magic Jew who hoovers over you watching you go to the bathroom and the acceptance of the Bible a book full of contradictions in which the earth is flat all wrote by Hebrews like Moses who the Bible states was inbred. Funny if all the Hellenic Philosophers really believed such why did the Christian church have to destroy all their work and rewrite all that they allowed to remain... Because the church is lying. That was the job of freaks like St. Augustine, the corruption of Platonic and other Greek philosophy for the Jewish program of the Catholic church. Corrupting the Goyim culture to accept the new program of Jewish control.
The other works such as of Apollonius of Tyana the Christian church attempted to have totally removed from public distribution in the 19th century when it was mainstreamed with the printing companies. Funny the one surviving history of an actual Greek Philosopher and he is a highly ascended master with psychic-spiritual abilities and fully ascends with the Magnum Opus. Wonder why the Christian church wanted that history of Greek philosophers removed. Its the real one.
