Cosmos – Giordano Bruno – The Great Lie Of The TV Series

Having watched the new television series Cosmos - A Space Odyssey which was advertised to present the vision of the Universe of Giordano Bruno, the only reason that Giordano Bruno was even mentioned, was to demonstrate how wrong the medieval Church was.   But in its presentation, the show was just as wrong, and perhaps even just as much a detriment to the advancement of mankind, as was the 16th century Church which burnt Bruno at the stake.   

The series presented Giordano Bruno as having a dream about an infinite universe.   But the most deceptive statement of all was the statement that Bruno's conclusions were based upon a series of "lucky guesses".  When in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.   And in the failure of the television series to reveal Bruno's source, has insured that modern man remains alienated from this source.  How, Giordano Bruno, was able to arrive at his quasi-scientific findings, should have been the main focus on his life.   Why?   Because every person who walks the face of the earth can access the same Source of infinite Knowledge that Bruno did -- and it is this undeveloped and often ignored innate human ability that everyone has the ability to access, that should have been the primary focus of the plight of Giordano Bruno and how he arrived at his uniquely advanced vision of the universe.   Why?  Because this self-knowledge pertaining to the Cosmology of Mind and Being has the potential to free all of mankind from the shackles of ignorance.   An ignorance that has been promoted by the Church, as well as modern science. 

The Wisdom of the Ancients proclaimed: Know Thyself!!!  But what exactly does that mean?   The Cosmos Series portrayed Bruno as the only man who understood the infinite universe in the time-frame in which he lived.   But what set Giordano Bruno apart from the rest of the men of his day was not his ability to make a "lucky guess"as suggested by the Cosmos television series -- but rather, because he overcame what can best be portrayed as human organic limitations that inhibit man from true enlightenment and knowing.   And by overcoming these natural organic limitations, Bruno was able to gain access to the Infinite Source of Knowledge that exists within himself -- as well as within all of mankind.   And while Giordano Bruno is the darling of the Atheists and pseudo-Deists who use his legacy to oppose religion, when rightly understood Giordano Bruno is the very supreme expression of man's spiritual nature -- which is the true objective of all genuine religions.   To the degree that it can be said that the life of Giordano Bruno when rightly understood, is the proof of the validity of the religious system he emerged out of.   The conclusion that Bruno made a series of"lucky guesses" as suggested by the Cosmos series, is an absolute fraud that robs the viewers of the facts, as well as the knowledge of their own true potential that is their birth-right.  

Did Giordano Bruno make some good guesses, as portrayed by the Cosmos Space Odyssey series?   Or did he access a Source of Knowledge that makes modern science seem infantile in comparison?   That's right, infantile!!!  Modern man who imagines himself to be a part of the most technologically advanced society the world has ever known, is incapable of even contemplating the reality that mystics such as Bruno could access a Source of Knowledge that was infinite in its depth of resources.  In fact, anyone who is able to tap into this Source that all of mankind has the potential to access, would have all of their questions about life and man's true reality instantly answered. 

Giordano Bruno was a priest of the Dominican Order -- a student of metaphysics and those mystical/Gnostic writings that were outlawed as heresy by the post-Nicene Church.  And as a Mystic, Giordano Bruno was able to tap into the higher reality of his soul (see BeingOfLight.com).    What is the soul?   It is that part of us that is our True Self -- it is eternal and has existed since the dawn of time -- and it is too vast to incarnate into the body (see SoulSelf.org).   Therefore, only an embryonic image of the soul can be projected into the body (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) -- and while everyone has the innate potential to evolve to the fulness of the soul-self through the initiation of a series of births, because mankind has freewill, few ever achieve their potential.   Yet, because many of the most important of the pre-Nicene writings and scriptures were preserved and protected within many of the monasteries when the hierarchy of the Church hunted these sacred writings down as heresy, Giordano Bruno had access to these writings and was able to spiritually regenerate the person he was in this world -- which when put to proper use, enabled him to tap into the infinite knowledge of his higher soul-self that is an eternal Being of Light.    

In his writings Giordano Bruno often made reference to this higher self that is our true self.   Quoting from the article Genuine Religion vs Counterfeit Shadow Religion Bruno writes that: "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body" (see 30 Quotes On Reincarnation).   And his position on the soul is further presented in the words: "The divine perfection of the individual soul is the aim of all progression" (Giordano Bruno quoted in Reincarnation: The Phoenix Fire Mystery; Cranston/Head, editors).    Thus, on the higher reality of the soul Bruno wrote: "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge."   Further stating that: "This principle in man moves and governs the body, is superior to the body, and cannot be constrained by it."  It is Spirit, the Real Self,"in which, from which and through which are formed the different bodies, which have to pass through different kinds of existences, names and destinies."   Giordano Bruno taught that the Law of Reincarnation is indissolubly connected with its twin doctrine of Karma, or "High Justice" -- stating that "Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body."   In his Spaccio de la Bestia Trionfante, which was published in 1584, Bruno described the condition of a soul who had misused its opportunities on earth, saying that such a soul would be "relegated back to another body, and should not expect to be entrusted with the government and administration of a better dwelling if it had conducted itself badly in the conduct of a previous one."   Thus explaining that there are certain individuals whose "soul-flame" has burned more brightly with each succeeding incarnation, leading them by gradual stages to perfection."These speak and act not as mere instruments of the divine, but rather as self-creative artists and heroes. The former have the divine spirit; the latter are divine spirits."   With respect to the existence and reality of the Inner Teacher that exists within the self of every person, Bruno wrote that: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it" (quoted in Life and Teachings of Giordano Bruno : Philosopher, Martyr, Mystic 1548 - 1600 (1913) by Coulson Turnbull).   

If the program Cosmos - A Space Odyssey had told the true story of Giordano Bruno and how he acquired his knowledge that set him apart from other priests who were not willing to openly speak out, then the door to enlightenment and a peaceful coexistence could have been cracked open for all of mankind who has been deprived of this essential knowledge by not only church and state, but also the very educational systems that we depend upon to develop our wisdom and intellect.   Those pre-Nicene scriptures and writings that have been suppressed by the church and state did not directly teach knowledge -- but rather, how the person you are in this world can begin to tap into the Dynamic Inner Self that possesses a body of Knowledge that far exceeds all of man's wisdom and philosophical speculations the world over.   This body of self-knowledge is the only wisdom that has the potential to enlighten and bring peace on earth.   And this is why the Gospel of Thomas correctly states: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".

The vision of peace on earth can only be brought about when the people of this world begin to draw nearer to their true self -- i.e., the "soul-flame" that Giordano Bruno portrayed as the true being that each of us is.  John Lennon's song Imagine, can only be brought about, when all of mankind are provided the knowledge that enables them to tap into and manifest the true Being of Light that they are.  There will be no churches, because all of mankind will become the body of the Divine Spiritual Temple Manifest in the earth.   There will be no governments, because all of mankind will possess the ability to self-govern.   There will be no wars, because all of mankind will recognize the common unity and brotherhood of all men and women.   All poverty, sickness and suffering would become a thing of man's dark and ignorant past.  Thus, if the TV series Cosmos had truly presented the Universe of Giordano Bruno -- explaining how he tapped into the higher reality of his soul-self that sees and understands all things as they truly are -- then the journey of man through life in this world could have been drastically transformed.

The Problem: Our modern educational systems not only do absolutely nothing to assist the student seeker of knowledge to begin to tap into this Inner Source of Infinite Knowledge, they they in fact point the student in the wrong direction, and program the thinking of the student with concepts that deny the higher reality of the Self.   When rightly understood, our institutions of learning do as much to alienate the student from their own higher reality, as did the medieval Church.  While it was true that much of the dogma of the Church would be better portrayed as fossilized superstition that was founded upon The Dogma Of Roman Emperors, it is also true that within the monasteries there existed true saints and mystics who endeavored to enlighten sincere seekers of truth -- of which Giordano Bruno was the product of their endeavors.   Giordano Bruno was an enlightened mystic, because he emerged out of an environment that developed the necessary aspects of mind to see and understand beyond normal organic human limitations.  Sadly, and to the detriment of mankind as a whole, the knowledge of the Cosmology of Mind and Being is totally absent from our schools -- thereby, depriving the students of the means to become enlightened and come into the knowledge of the reality of their own true self.
