There aren’t fully original ideas. We take two or more thoughts and put them together to form something new.
“When Moses was alive, these pyramids were a thousand years old. Here began the history of architecture. Here people learned to measure time by a calendar, to plot the stars by astronomy and chart the earth by geometry. And here they developed that most awesome of all ideas – the idea of eternity.”
– Walter Cronkite
Do I know for sure he said that? It doesn’t really matter for my purposes here.
Cut up, run through Goodie translate:
From old ideas to a calendar of a thousand ideas, it’s all here. The eternity of man’s astronomical architecture is here and stories, the amazing geometry of the pyramids of life, until this earth learns that great things begin here in the story of Moses.
Ok, that’s close to coherent.
“Pavlov formulated his findings into a general rule in which the speed of learning positively correlated with quiet isolation. The totalitarians have followed this rule. They know they can condition their political victims most quickly if they are kept in isolation.”
– Joost A. M. Meerloo

Shelton’s findings suggest that oppressors can control and isolate their victims excessively; If they know that Pavlovian silence is their nature, they will quickly internalize general positive political learning and quickly become lonely.
Again, close to coherent.
A new thought from the wreckage of those two thoughts and their cut ups:
Eternity means that it belongs to man, and to them, until man knows it properly.
Eternity is an abstract concept made up in the minds of humans. It may be real. It may be nonexistent. We can conceive of it either way. This is not too dissimilar to the following quote from The Book of the Dead, “Mine is yesterday, I know tomorrow.” -or- “Yesterday is Osiris, tomorrow is Ra.”
There must be infinite abstract concepts, many of which our minds would push away as incomprehensible, but we could still name them and keep them as pets. Perhaps, a true understanding of what astrology would teach us if the stars from our place yesterday and tomorrow could form a new abstract concept that was either real or nonexistent. Just as astrology itself may be real or nonexistent.

This is nothing
The word government is life, which quickly isolates those who want it
The Rule of a Thousand Pyramids can become obsolete if it is political in nature
This is the wonder of astronomy, and it became geometry, and so on
According to the same natural calendar, Moses learned these ideas
Eternity means that it belongs to man and to them until man knows it properly.
Pavlov’s theories about the positive consequences of silence
We begin to exaggerate all the victims in the architecture of history, which includes the great
