But if SME's position in this paradigm is to be seen as an attempt to reconcile "a big contradiction" in the alchemical sense, it failed. As magical or mystical as it may appear, it isn't possible to reconcile the irreconcilable.
I disagree. There are people who are able to look past things and see the human being.
Sure, but who can't? You imply that by doing something you interpret as looking past things and seeing human beings, the irreconcilable is reconciled. I do not believe that reconciling the irreconcilable is actually achieved by doing what you say. And I do not believe that the effort to try to do so, or the effects created by that effort, are helpful or wise.
Maybe it doesn't make sense, such as when, to use an extreme example, murderers are forgiven by the family members of the victim. I hesitate to use an extreme example, but I find posting on threads like this requires a lot of mental gymnastics that sometimes I don't want to do. I understand that.
Maybe study some more about what reconciling the irreconcilable would entail. The mental gymnastics, as you call this effort, cannot work, so not wanting to do what cannot work is doubtlessly desirable.
People forgive. Why? It's just something inside them, like Larry seems to have.
I'm glad you brought up the issue of forgiveness in this context. Clearly it is possible to forgive everyone, your personal victimizers too. That doesn't mean, however, you should thereafter support their victimizing behavior, or deny that they're still victimizing people if they are, because you've "forgiven" them.
Does Larry forgive Miscavige just as Larry forgives Rathbun? The Indies certainly don't forgive Miscavige. Or is what they say about him actually what they understand forgiveness is? Hubbard stated in scripture that forgiveness is actually censoriousness, so by their universal censoriousness toward Miscavige they're actually forgiving him?
I don't see one thing Miscavige does that makes him less forgiveable than Rathbun or Larry. Why the double standard?
Policemen, for example, can forgive criminals for their criminal behavior, and I think the best cops do have forgiveness in their hearts. This doesn't mean they don't do their job.
In the present situation, what is being sought is justice. "Forgiveness" at the expense of justice is cruelty, and implying that such a behavior is superior to the behavior of those who seek justice I find unacceptable.
How is it humanly possible to support Scientologists' victims, while at the same time supporting the Indies' "right" to continue to apply Hubbard's inherently abusive SP doctrine that victimizes the same victims? I believe forgiveness is another, different level of abstraction that is being improperly applied to this fact situation and unwisely is used against the Scientologists' victims.
