In those early years; almost all honored scholars considered the four most "Elementary-Physical-Substances" to be: Earth, Water, Air and Fire/Phlogiston. Within their context --- might the following be seen as the "components" of "credible theories" regarding "good" and "evil" spirits which were not-physical <==> not-objective; e.g., part of a "parallel" reality --- which permeates Earthly-Things Down-Below and Heaven- Above? --------------- Might the following ten "components" have been commonly present in people's minds at those times within many contexts? 1. There are "good-spirits" and "evil-spirits". 2. Such "spirits" are like the fluids "Air", "Water", and "Fire/Phlogiston". 3. Such "spirits" can permeate people-and-souls as do "Air", "Water" and "Fire/Phlogiston". 4. Such "spirits can be "driven-out" of people and out of their souls" --- as can "Air", "Water" and "Fire/Phlogiston". 5. Pure people are those people "out-of-which" "evil-spirits" have been "driven" by one means or another. 6. Evil-People are those people "into-which" "evil- spirits" have moved to "possess" them as "habitations". 7. Good-People by virtue of their own experiences know more about "driving-evil-spirits-out-of" others With- Power; than do people who have not been thus "purified". 8. Evil-People as the "Habitations-of-Evil-Spirits" will cooperate with other Evil-People who are Dominated/Possessed by like "evil-spirits" who form a conspiracy against The-Health-of-People-and-Their-Souls. 9. The above components of the pervasive theory of the most basic elements --- form the sound basis for our best efforts to promote "good" by controlling "evil". 10. If we cannot manage, discipline, control and be dominant over "evil" --- we cannot be "good" as God is "good"; e.g., through "self-discipline". Where do "Evil-Relationships" fit into the above? Where do Alienation-and-Estrangement fit? Where do Reconciliation-and-Forgiveness fit? Where do Arrogance-and-Self-Righteousness fit? Where do Exclusivity, Tolerance and Inclusivity fit? Where do Reconciliation, Healing & Peace-making fit? Where do Grace, Humility & Distributive-Justice fit? Where to Authenticity, Coherence and Cooperation fit? What are the "components" and "elements" of a Coherent-Modern-Theory about the Essential-Foundations for Personal-and-Communal Integrations-and-Integrities? How are we to Find-Ourselves Joyfully-Together in Coherent-Ways within the Way/Ways-of-Shalom? (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in "Search for Honesty and Integrity" (On Being Yourself Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
