Idioms out of Joseph

What I am referring to here is the Old Testament Joseph. Joseph’s phase of life was three fold and they are: Misfortune, Dream Interpretation, Prosperity and Reconciliation.

The brothers of Joseph hated him as he was the Father Jacob’s pet and to make matters worse Joseph said that he had a dream and in it he could see all brothers on their knees and worshiping him. The brothers planned to kill him but at the last moment they sold Jacob to the Egyptians. In Egypt Joseph was the master of Potiphar’s household. Potiphar’s wife became enamored with him and forced him to go to bed with her. Joseph would not relent and Potiophar’s wife said to Potiphar that she was molested and had Jacob put in jail. This is a period of Joseph’s misfortune. I don’t want a Joseph to happen to me. In prison he was able to interpret the dreams of the cupbearer and the baker. The cupbearer and baker were released from prison. Then all of a sudden the Pharaoh had a strange dream which no one could interpret. It was like this: seven stout cows came and then seven famished ones came next and ate up the fat cows. Seven strands of fattened grain came and then seven emaciated grain came next and ate the obese strands of grain. The cupbearer told to the Pharaoh of Joseph. Joseph was ushered to the Pharaoh and Joseph said: this is what the dream is: there will be seven years of plenty and after that there will be seven years of famine. The Pharaoh was impressed with his interpretation and made him the minister of Egypt and asked him to collect all the abundance and store in big God Downs. This is a period of Joseph’s prosperity. As Idioms Joseph, means a dream interpreter and also fortune. Then comes Joseph’s period of reconciliation with his brothers. In the beginning he was bit curt with them but later he wept in the privacy of his room and then welcomed the brothers and invited them to come and live in Egypt.

From the Bible

There’s an interesting passage in the New Testament Bible where Jesus asks a young man to follow him. The man replied he has a burial to attend. Jesus said to him: ‘let the dead bury the dead’. Let the Dead Bury the dead as idiom means admonishing somebody. My boss gave me a lecture of the dead burying the dead.

I read into the story of Jacob in the Old Testament. Jacob bamboozled his brother two times, by stealing the birth right of the father. As an Idiom Jacob means one who deceives. During the Journey of life I have met many a Jacob.

Epiphany

Psyche—you marvel on wings—there you float as poetic music—there you dance as an ornament—you are nature’s love—you are a hymn of celestial delight—watching you is a rapture of the senses—a canticle being sung—a music—a poetry being recited. God Jehovah Jesus has made you are so precious and wonderful.

Reconciliation

An affluent man broke up with his wife and daughter. After a period of many years, he went to a brothel. As he was ushered into the bedroom of the brothel, there to his surprise, he saw his own daughter. He started weeping and asked his daughter why she chose to be a whore. Then she replied: ‘I am helping my mother, she is having cancer’. The man embraced his daughter and took her home and also she welcomed the mother.

From the Bible

I have started reading the Old Testament and I have across some interesting thoughts. God in order to test Abraham asked him to sacrifice his son Isaac. Abraham being obedient to God took him up the hill and tied him up. When he was about to light the fire, God asked him to sacrifice a Ram whose horns were entangled in the thicket. The Sacrifice of Isaac can be an idiom meaning: an unpleasant situation becoming more pleasant. God help me to have the sacrifice of Isaac every day.

Post Post Modern Ontology

I have created a new branch of knowledge called Value epistemology. Value epistemology has its mirroring in an ontology (Being) that is constructive. There are two types of ontology: one being constructive ontology and the other being destructive ontology.

Camus and Sartre are philosophers who have espoused a philosophy of ontological destruction. For them life is chaotic and absurd and having no meaning. They also celebrate a being going into a fallen pit of anarchy. Let’s take Camus Myth of the Sisyphus. In it a man is condemned by the Gods to roll a boulder all the way uphill only to find that it rolls down. The man is forced to repeat this meaningless chore again and again. I would like to ask Camus: is life absurd? Is it chaotic! Camus’ philosophy is an incoherent one. If we follow Camus philosophy we won’t be able to live a life meaningfully. Aren’t we living in a society where we celebrate the meaning of life? We are not beings living in isolation. We are living in a community of shared meanings— or should be live as egotistic individuals. Is life marked the absence of reason and passion? We are beings living in three states—Catharsis, Angst and Ecstasy. Meaning of life is existentially realized.

What does Sartre have to say of Ontological Existentialism? Sartre’s Philosophy also celebrates the meaning of the absurd. Life for him is coherent mass of nothingness. We navigate our life by negating the meaning of existence. Is life chaotic and absurd? Is the choice we make to free ourselves meaningless one? Sartre goes on to say that: we are condemned to be free. How can we say that freedom is our condemnation? Was Sartre a psychological victim of World War II? Why is there so much negative theology in ontological philosophy?

I have read and reread existential Philosophers like Camus and Sartre and I have developed a new branch of existential ontology called constructive ontology. Constructive Ontology creates a new meaning that life is creative and having a purpose. We have to live a life in Valueblelization (from Value and Realization). Valueblelization means a creative living with celebration of sharing meanings in empathic harmony. For Valueblelization to occur an individual is a purposeist from (Purpose and ist). We have to authenticate ourselves in a democratic empathy of sharing meanings.
Summarizing I can say that the Philosophy of Camus and Sartre is destructive and rereading them I have made ontology a constructive one.
