“Men prepare a meal for enjoyment, and wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything”

[Ecclesiastes 10:19]

Ecclesiastes: Read this book. Live this life. Know these Words.

The fundamental book on futurology and the art of predictions has been written in the last part of the 3rd century Before Christ, a book of the Jewish Ketuvim, one of the three sections making up the Hebrew bible and part of the Old Testament: Ecclesiastes.

Nothing is new under the sun says Ecclesiastes, what happen yesterday will happen tomorrow. All the actions of man to build a better world or to prolong their life in even are inherently vain, futile, empty, meaningless, temporary, transitory, fleeting or mere breath, as the lives of both the wise and foolish men end and will always end in death. Wisdom, enlightenment is merely a mean for a well-lived earthly life; there is no eternal, mystical or spiritual meaning to it. In light of this senselessness, one should enjoy the simple pleasures of daily life, such as eating, drinking, and taking enjoyment in one’s work.

All people all people face death says Ecclesiastes; the world is full of risks, both political and economic, yet life is better than death, and we should enjoy life when we can. Men should enjoy life, but should not be greedy. No one knows what is good or wrong for humanity says Ecclesiastes; like for yesterday, humanity is still marching toward its grave. Righteousness and wisdom escape us. Mortals should take pleasure when they can, for a time may come when no one will.

The natural laws of the Universe are ruling our lives and mankind destiny, not whatever form of gods or heavenly entities. In 2014, like forever since the origins of man, religions, in the name of God will kill even more people; there will be more wars and more natural disasters that have nothing to do with either good or evil.

Your future, you are the one creating it. You create your own future, your own misery. God has nothing to do with it.

There is only one thing good for man: life itself!

Make it enjoyable.

gilgamesh

The Epic of Gilgamesh, the mother of all

I WILL proclaim to the world the deeds of Gilgamesh. This was the man to whom all things were known; this was the king who knew the countries of the world. He was wise, he saw mysteries and knew secret things. He brought us a tale of the days before the flood. He went on a long journey, was weary, worn-out with labour, returning he rested; he engraved on a stone the whole story.

Gilgamesh long before anyone else brought us the tale of the Creation, the tale of the Gods, the tale of Babel, the tale of the Deluge, the tale of Solomon. Gilgamesh was wise, he saw mysteries and knew secret things. Long time ago he provided the world with the answers to the greatest mysteries of life: Is there life after death and what is the purpose of man on earth?

And nobody listened.

Torah inside of the former Glockengasse Synago...

He that increases knowledge increases sorrow

1THE words of Solomon, the son of David, king in Jerusalem

2 Vanity of vanities, says The Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. 3 What profit has a man of all his labour, which he takes under the sun? 4 One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth abides for ever. 5 The sun also arises, and the sun goes down, and hastes to his place where he arose. 6 The wind goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the wind returns again according to his circuits. 7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. 8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9 The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is and what has been done is that which shall be done: and there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It has been already of old time, which was before us. 11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

12 I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem. 13 And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail has God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith. 14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. 15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. 16 I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. 17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. 18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increases knowledge increases sorrow.


[1] Solomon was, according to the Bible’s Book of Kings and Book of Chronicles, a king of Israel, son of David that would have live between 970 and 931 AD.
