When wow we've just been through the wringer we've just been through it you know. I mean whether it's something that happens in somebody's personal life or this global ringer. The comes a time when we just take breath and even nfc no not over but for moment we just take a breath and we know that's really relax and and nurture our own hearts and hearts of people around us. Let's food chill out. And and so you know. I sang this Plan to make it thirteen and a half minutes. And i didn't plan to your. I thought i would add a lot of production and whatever to i. Didn't plan on leaving it. So who Bare you know. But when i started seeing i felt this piece you know this is heart full peace and i couldn't stop i. I didn't want to stop. And so i kept going and i kept going. I imagined it. You know just in my own imagination. Shiva's the destroyer. You know than. I imagined that after destroying this world that world he goes back to his beloved and he puts his dreadlocked head on her lap and she seems this lullaby. So that's michael. The after the fire chief lullaby is actually his beloved parvathi singing to him to calm him and to relax and to soothe him. After this intensity.

And i think some cds availables well Thank you for posting that. Pretty picture up there So i'd like to talk about the concept of Because we're about transformation on the show so Into the fire. Let me burn. I mean it sounds kind of brutal But i know you've spoken a little bit about the global picture on what we're what we're letting go of and and having to release but Just in general. The metaphor of burning is transformation. If you'd like to give me your thoughts on that were. I think you just said that the anytime big change comes whether it's external or internal except we go through a period of feels like burning at least me you know. Some people are elected so easy with change. But i'm not when things change. And i am very change resistant. Which is funny because my wife nubia she. She's always rearranging the house and improving the house. But you know like it's different today. Anyway you know the the chain that fire that comes when transformation comes we we all go through it. We can use different metaphors for it but fired is one of the metaphors for transformation. And look you know. E- it just in the natural world fire turns to ash and following this metaphor We hope that what rises out from the fire that the ash that actually comes from the fires actually a newer us in a more shining more connected divinely. Inspired us you know. We hope that in any transformational period in our life. Sometimes it's easier sometimes it happens. You know the the the Heavens quickly sometimes. We struggled for a long time. But it's like a fire and you know so the story behind. Let me burn. My songs have a story and they don't have a story but there is a particular story ran this and it comes from an indian epic called the reminder and obviously. I can't tell this whole story. Now but sita the goddess has been abducted by by the demon king the embodiment of evil and her husband. Seat as husband. Rama goes on a quest to find her. And there's a a war happens and it's like a major a major epic so beautiful but at the end when the demons are defeated. There's some murmurings in in the populace will will see the has been in the kingdom of the demon robina for all. These months has she. Has she stayed true to her. Beloved and seat that. Here's this so she invokes the the god of fire ogoni. She says if i had been untrue to my beloved rama in thought word or even in a dream. Let me burn. Says she steps into the fire. The fire's shoot in wraps itself around her but her but she's unscathed and then that's why she says if i have been on untrue. Let me burn. But she doesn't burn and she steps out in in shining beatific. Glory in dioramas arms. Why do that is a beautiful story. all right. Well it's beautiful song. Too and i know that. It's quite an epic song and i'm happy to I think it's a great title track for that record. So another indian deity. We have to speak out and one of my favorite songs that you also sing is about initia- could share Yes i put out a double album of john songs. Oh gosh like two thousand five or two thousand four. I'm not even sure. And and the first song is a song to canessa. And i had a young child sing it with me. And her name is chirac. She was maybe six or seven it so so fun because before she even sang she said you have to pay me now but anyway ganesh. It is the elephant headed. God initially is one of the sons of sheva in poverty and as such. He has all the attributes of chiba but he is particularly known as the remover of obstacles from our path. And you know in in india anytime a new business or marriage or any new endeavor. Whether it's you know whatever you know. Any new endeavor started conditions always invoked at the beginning. Please remove the obstacles from our path so we have success in this in this endeavor and also get you you see the pictures of the statute is. He's missing one of his trunks. Or there's just a little stub of one of his strengths because when the composer of the ancient texts the vader's was looking for pani. Couldn't find a pan so he turned connection and gave trump to us as a pen to write. The vagus should always surrounded by piles of sweets and cookies cakes and stuff. He's a very much of an enjoyer as well. And so it's those are. Those are some really great anecdotes again. I didn't. I didn't think i didn't know he likes treat. So another reason to dig him. You know it's interesting. I love hearing these stories from you. Because i i think i came to the deities probably through mantras so in fact. I wasn't even thinking that. Masha via when i'm singing that it's like oh it sounded great but then i realized. Oh that's for sheva. And so. I just wanna say. Sometimes the indian daddy's are they're very foreign. Gye you know how do we westerners relate and what would be kind of an intro. And what was it like for you as you were understanding that. I know you went to india so that may have helped as it did me well for. I can't use myself as a very good example. Because as soon as i heard about first thing i ever saw like a picture i music music ever heard from india. I was in love with it. You know so. I had never had any of that or this is far. How do i get into it. I just never had that. But i will share a story. We were you know i. I teach for the last twenty years twice a year on campus. It's been a little different now with the with a pandemic we've been doing it online on a different kind of schedule. But for twenty years in the winter we'd go to a warm tropical wonderful place and we would spend a week or ten days teaching and exchanging and sharing your time and and all the the context and etcetera etcetera so one year.

He was surprised that he saw a little boy studying in the front gate who basically blocked his way saying that he cannot enter and claiming that he is the son of varsity so there's multiple different versions but the one that kind of i associate more with. Sheva is the fact that a biscuit asha sorry. Is that sheva. Commanded his army to fight going. Asha who he actually won over the over the army so she had to intervene and he chopped off guinness head on once he entered his own palace.

And what happened was a group of cheese who are people who have given their life to god had passed Bowed to them and a provocative was like how come you're bowing there.

And that's why chief thousand him so sheva is is the. I grew so that they saved from the original. The primordial sound of own. That's the girl beautiful and also i'm sorry but sheva does smoke marijuana right. Yeah you know. There's there's a big division of of that were out of the more orthodox folks don't think that he does. But i know in the story than i told last time on your podcast where he swallowed the poison.

you get another holiday right after due to graphs I guess as you get your card or a gift or something yeah I mean so I I because you I I watch some of it because a year which is out of my copes loyalty and intrigue and I didn't make it to the end now I left when it was some woman said you got to make fire against the you to got to make fire against each other I think that's it I gotta go hell yeah did you watch the fire making challenge that's what it was like ten twenty or something you know that's it this is help you have you the distance I couldn't risk waking up and knowing or finding out who in one after finale like that did you know well the one thing we didn't get which I always loved the reunion episode of the reunion special afterwards because they discuss strategy they discussed the upcoming season they talk about major moves in a sort of a funny one because we got all of the all the returning winners but so what they did instead was they gave us a three hour finale with I think if markets account right I think for tribal councils and maybe three challenges for different challenges it was Alfa now it was good if good fish I said to trouble counts as one where they had to re vote as people broadcast broadcast somebody immunity that US is that is that is that unprecedented or regular that was that was sort of rare for there being five I think it was a final six at that point and four people were immune that was kinda rare but based on the domino effect I think every viewer that had watched kinda knew that if an item was played that that was gonna happen when that happens you you sort of paying people into a corner and then two people were left to be voted out and then the guy I understand you were anti this probably was a guy you would have a thing with because he was like a hipster cowboys dnia is that I'm describing it right he's not a hipster at all okay I'm sorry well history tell that to the cowboy hipsters out their case there are there are hipsters who who try to look like Ben though yeah I mean that's kind that's kind of like the Oakland bartender looks pretty legit like he's he was a marine I think he's like a he's like a true midwestern dude I don't know where he's from exactly but he's I don't think he's fake I don't use a he says Israel let answers well but hipsters trying to look like that what little food mansion I mean he he devoted out needs resolutely he's very he was a marine he's a like a military so against him that was the first time he played he was a kind of a brash he was a great it was a fun player he was a really likeable guy in this time around he was even more just likable guy thought this time you just kinda he's shown some people he just decided that I want to work with you so I'm never gonna converse with that person and that I think that's a close minded way of playing alternately you get voted out so it appears that he jumped on the grenade and sort of likes told his partner vote me out which was the lamest **** ever do because the whole point of this was she was she was the woman's name was Sarah and she was basically saying there's a gender bias in this game that if a woman is conniving and backstabbing she's viewed as at like at like an evil player wears a random strategize so what she was saying was I don't want people to think that because her other partner Tony who literally carried her to the end of the game she said I don't want people to think you carry me to the end so Benson's okay I'll make sure people don't know that you vote me out and then it'll be like he didn't carry you to the end you will have made a move but if you just lay down the house the better she can go make the move you get right yeah yeah yeah it was lame I'm glad she didn't win I'm glad Ben didn't win the final three was the final three I wanted to see and the one who one was probably the most deserving and I think now we call on the we call Tony Vlachos the greatest player of all time you're really pretty good band now this all coming on the at the gender bias having a fair number of women one thing yeah this is something that's been a topic actually throughout survivor history I just a look I think that were almost equal it maybe a few more men I have actually of the week yes right now I don't think it's like eighteen to twenty two or something to tell you the truth the last five all that meant Tony Tommy Chris Nick and Wendell then that's six straight men prior to that was Serra but then Adam Adam one and then Michelle one then Jeremy one that Mike won the Natalie yeah Tony one again in twenty eight Tyson one John one Denise one KM one so if you want rob one Judd one Sandra one Natalie one James one Robert Parvathi one Parvati Harvey a man or woman is a woman she was in this season she was actually one of the favorites coming and she's one of the all time greats looks like it's it tilts towards men but but it's not like the hunt is not like ninety five five no it's more like sixty forty or so maybe that's more recent because of these last sixty just measured for a while it was almost even for a long time it was it was on par when we've had twenty one year old when we had a seven year old man or a sixty year old man winter so it's it's really is like TV's greatest social experiment and I'm I can't wait for season forty one by the way at at seven oh seven says look I'm trying to scrub with bands called lumber sexual politics no no no no no I'm not familiar with the term but I like it yeah well lumber Seattle over sexual so I guess that's where you kind of create your whole look based on DNA yes I think it's a combination of all of the northwestern longer meets a you know I don't know a swinger yeah yeah and I think by the way it it probably can go to either gender I'm guessing yeah I would think so yeah he's very genderfluid Murphy all right we gotta get to the guest.
"parvathi" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"What are we getting next rubber right so it's looking at a study? This that you found in the night ended up diving into it was. Yeah Yeah Yeah I was interested in. I didn't know about this one because it seemed like some of the well. Will you describe it? And then we can discuss. Okay yeah this one was titled. Why revelations have occurred on mountains linking mystical experiences and cognitive neuroscience This was published in medical hypotheses. Twenty fifteen from ours back Lancet and blanke quote. Here's a quote from the peace quote prolonged. Stay at high. Altitudes especially in social deprivation may also lead to prefrontal lobe dysfunction such as low resistance to stress and a loss of ambition based on these phenomena logical functional and neural findings we suggested exposure to altitudes might contribute to the induction of revelation experiences and might further our understanding of the mountain metaphor religion. So they're really going for it. Yeah on this one. And they they point to the major revelations in the three major monotheistic religions in Judaism the burning Bush This is God speaks through the burning Bush. This is from exodus. Christianity is transfiguration from the book of Matthew. This is In which Jesus divine nature is revealed on lookers and then in Islam? There's also the the the the point where all speaks to the Prophet Mohammad in that also Like a mountain revelation. Now one of the problems here is getting into the idea of insufficient altitudes right. Yeah so I'd seen the study brought up on science blog somewhere and I thought it was interesting because touching on question we're asking but I saw it in the context of it being ridiculed because the main mountains that it's talking about aren't really that hot right so they're not like super high mountains that would be likely to cause Altitude sickness right right. Yeah they're not dealing with Himalayan peaks here right This is what the paper says. Though about the idea of moderate altitudes they said although the revelations discussed here had occurred in moderate altitudes it may be assumed that in subjects who are prone to mystical experiences already. Moderate altitudes are sufficient to trigger river revelation like experiences and revelations so the argument. Here I guess is is first of all you know not not. Everyone's going to have the same reaction to altitude like we've discussed right and that even moderate High altitude they're arguing could be sufficient potentially is one of those more research needed areas right but it could be enough to push people minds toward mystical experiences. Especially those minds are already Susceptible to say hallucination to voices or a to the experience of the supernatural and then the The the remembrance of supernatural experience. You know it's funny that they focus on Like the Abraham MC monotheistic religions Judaism Christianity and Islam. Because in the last episode you remember we had a discussion how it seems to me that That actually sacred geography plays less of a role in the Abraham MC religions than it does in many other religions around the world whereas in Abraham religions. It seems that when place is wholly. It's usually because the idea the something important and they're whereas in many other religions around the world the place itself has some religious significance the re the land itself the mountain is the home of the gods or is the body of a God or is sacred in its own right. Not just because of something that happened there right. I imagine there could be room for a lot of theological discussion In each of these three religions but yeah all three of these even as we were mentioning him we were mentioning the event. They were mentioning in the paper. The event that took place the meeting of Of An individual and the divine for instance in the case of the the The the Jewish Islamic examples. So at this point I want to turn to a particular mountain entity because I think it lines up with some of what We were just discussing ear. And that's that entity is the yeti everybody's favourite cooler no not the cooler. I mean unless the cooler has an actual yet the in it. That'd be a good trick discovered. One what was it the whether somebody in Georgia who claimed they had a big fluid and like a beer cooler and was like a freezer. There's a whole whole thing about ten or eleven years ago. Yeah I remember it well because for one fleeting second It made me wonder. Are we about to know that there is a sasquatch and of course it turned out to not be the case? It was like a costume or something right now. The Eddie in modern Western culture it has become just kind of a Himalayan variant of the SASQUATCH. You know if I say yet you? Major picture bigfoot or skunk ape whatever the regional variation of this creature is and I do think that is important is to think about the fact that there are variations of the wild man being in various cultures. Basically like a bipedal creature covered in hair that is seen all around the world but has distinct origins in each case right. Yes but It was looking at. I wanted to get a like a better snapshot of the this ape like beast As far as like Himalayan traditions go so I ran across a very very insightful. Piece titled Boonies tales of the Yeti by Kuhn Zane Coton Tales of the creature exists through the Himalayan region and the author points to the different names that are given to this entity so into bip Tibet. There's gangs me. Or Glacier man. There's me Sean. Poe or strongman and each in po or great man The SHERPAS College Yeti the lectures call it Chew Moon or Snow Goblin. I like that one or low moon or Mountain Goblin in Paul. There's Nihil new or Ban Monchy. He didn't provide a track translation translation for those. But I'm assuming some treatment on these various ideas you know And then The Bhutanese Say Migo or strong man also Greg Po. So we get this idea of some figure of of savage cold strength with possible you know Goblin a qualities as well so showed an writes that the the Mikoy idea here dates back to the pre Buddhist bond writings the The Pre Buddhist Animist religion. We mentioned this briefly in the last episode the indigenous religion of Tibet. It came up because Mount Kailash Amount Kyle Lhasa in In the Himalayas is a peak that is holy not just to Hindus who believe Some of whom believed that Lord Shiva and Parvathi dwell on top of Mount Kailash but it's also holy to some Buddhists Jane's and members of the bond religion that the Tibetan indigenous religion and Apparently some bon rituals call for the blood of Migo a slain with a sharp weapon. Whoa yeah so yeah so. This is a pre existing idea but then you get some Westerners involved writing and then you get this idea. Exported and and and reignited In the Western mind so British Traveller William Hugh night of the royals. The Royal. Society's Club recorded a Yeti siding in nineteen oh three on his way back to India from Tibet and then was another sighting in eighteen. Twenty five by a Westerner by a Greek zoologist in a Tom Bazi who described like this unquestionably figure in outline was exactly like a human being walking upright and stopping occasionally to uproot or pull at some Dwarf Rhododendron. It showed up dark against the snow and as far as I could make out wore no clothes and then later you had print sightings and And so forth in the nineteen fifties that helped popularize the idea of the Yeti in the West various films certainly of television series like in search of helped to contribute to this idea and today the the interest interest in the Eddie continues but there remains no proof that the creature exists in fact examination of preserved evidence of Yetis tends to lean toward the intentional or accidental misinterpretation of another animal or its handiwork. Dna worked from the past few years. For instance points does directly to at Asian bears as the source of the samples. So all of this in any any time. We're talking about a Yeti citing even in the Himalayan region we can't discount hoaxes and various other reasons but when we consider the potential effects of poxy A- and and these other like a high altitude situations Joel I think in some degree or related. Ibox know we might be talking more of a full blown hallucination and then at lower altitudes the effect could just be enough to make the individual. See what they want to see when they glimpse in normal animal or another human being so I found this idea of first of all there is. I did see this idea echoed in searching for the mysterious monsters a two thousand fourteen book by General for Rifkin. Now this is a kids book I WANNA see normally. We don't side a lot of kids book but listen was actually. I was reading through it. It's pretty good at. It seems to to to balance the mystical. What if with a lot of legitimate skepticism And then also I did see this idea Also echoed in A couple of journals and books such as nine hundred nine high altitude medical science by you'd you too Cushman and vocal and I think there is a lot of you know there are similarities. Between for instance that that getty account that I read earlier and accounts of a third man. Right here there is some other creature there and It wasn't human but it was It was hanging out it was there. I glimpsed in what you have this in in in this of course on top of a pre existing idea of there being some sort of a Yeti creature in the mountains and then once this idea gets Becomes part of of Western culture as well. Then there's more room to misinterpret the evidence or even Your senses now. I wonder if the if like a psychological thing kind of like the The Com- the climbing companion. The Third Man Syndrome is going on here. What do you think it might be? That would cause people to see a bipedal human like creature covered in hair as opposed to seeing. You know another just another human dressed like them or to seeing like a dead relative for one of these common hallucinations of comforting figures. Well on the hair thing I think certainly have one glimpsed a bear. That could throw you off. I mean if you've ever seen a bear in the in the flesh it can be this weird surreal and frightening experience. I mean hopefully a little frightening because as far as I'm concerned if you encounter bear and you don't have like a certain amount of fear. You're doing it wrong. There are good reasons why we see bears. As objects of prehistoric religions. I mean I think it's quite clear that the bear worship in various forms goes back a long way. That's one of those. Were kind of obvious why that would happen. Is this kind of like too many people. The bear would clearly seemed to be like the king of nature. Yeah this beast that can also rise up on two legs and stand like us that is seemingly slow in lethargic and then full of energy and ferocity that also we got into this in our winter people episode a couple of years back a creature that in some cases digs its own grave and seems to die and then reemerge with life in the spring. Yeah Yeah. It does seem quite mystical. You can totally see why bear would be thing that you would be afraid to speak. Its name speak. It's IT'S DANGEROUS. Holy Name and And why if you saw one out in the wild yeah you. You might think you'd had some kind of other worldly encounter all right one. Let's leave the Yeti and take one more break and we come back. We'll continue to discuss the topic. We've quickly found ourselves in tough times that none of us could have predicted a couple of months ago. The economy's in a rough spot because of Kobe. Nineteen small businesses and individuals are experiencing hard times with their personal finances too. That's why we've ramped up..

"Credit laster full policy term visit GEICO DOT com slash. Give back for more INFO and eligibility. We're back all right. What are we getting next rubber? Right so looking at a study. This that you found in the night ended up diving into. It was yeah, yeah, yeah. I was interested in I didn't know about this one because it seemed like some of the well. Will you describe it? And then we can discuss okay. Yeah, this one was titled Why revelations have occurred on mountains, linking mystical experiences and cognitive neuroscience This was published in Medical Hypotheses Twenty fifteen. From ours back. Lancet and blankie. Quote, here's a quote from the peace quote. Prolonged stay at high altitudes, especially in social deprivation may also lead to prefrontal lobe dysfunction, such as low resistance to stress and a loss of ambition based on these phenomena, logical, functional and neural findings we suggested exposure to altitudes might contribute to the induction revelation experiences, and might further our understanding of the mountain metaphor in religion, so they're really going for it. Yeah on this win and they they point to the major revelations in the three major monotheistic religions. Judaism, the burning Bush This is God speaks through the burning Bush. This is from exodus. Christianity is transfiguration from the book of Matthew. This is in which Jesus divine nature is revealed on lookers. And, then in Islam there's also the the point where all speaks to the Prophet Mohammad. In that also like a mountain revelation. Now. One of the problems here is getting into the idea of insufficient altitudes right? Yeah, so I'd seen. The study brought up on science blog somewhere and I thought. It was interesting because touching on question. We're asking, but I saw it in the context of it, being ridiculed because the main mountains that it's talking about aren't really that hot right, so they're not like super high mountains that would be likely to cause altitude sickness right right? Yeah, they're not dealing with Himalayan peaks here, right This is what the paper says. Though about the idea of moderate altitudes, they said although the revelations discussed here had occurred in moderate altitudes. It may be assumed that in subjects who are prone to mystical experiences. Already moderate altitudes are sufficient to trigger river revelation like experiences and revelations so. The, argument here I guess is is first of all you know not not. Everyone's going to have the same reaction to altitude like we've discussed right and that even moderate high altitude they're arguing could be sufficient. Potentially is one of those more research needed areas right, but it could be enough to push. People. Minds toward mystical experiences, especially those minds are already susceptible to say hallucination to voices or a to the experience of the supernatural, and then the the the remembrance of supernatural experience. You know it's funny that they focus on like the Abraham MC, monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam because in the last episode. You remember we had a discussion how it seems to me that That actually sacred geography plays less of a role in the Ibrahimovic religions than it does in many other religions around world whereas. In Abraham religions, it seems that when place is wholly, it's usually because the idea. The something important happened there, whereas in many other religions around the world, the place itself has some religious significance, the re the land itself the mountain is the home of the Gods, or is the body of a God, or is sacred in its own right, not just because of something that happened there right i. Imagine there could be room for a lot of theological discussion in each of these three religions, but yeah all three of these, even as we were mentioning him. We were mentioning the event they were mentioning in the paper, the event that took place the meeting of of an individual and the divine, for instance in the case of the the the the Islam examples. So. At this point I want to turn to. A. Particular Mountain entity because I think it lines up with some of what we were just discussing year, and that's that entity is the Yeti. Everybody's favourite cooler. No, not the cooler I mean unless the cooler has an actual yet the in it. That'd be a good trick. Discovered one, what was it the whether somebody in Georgia? WHO claimed they had a big fluid and like a beer cooler and was like a freezer. There's a whole whole thing about ten or eleven years ago. Yeah! I remember it well, because for one fleeting second It made me wonder. Are we about to know that there is a sasquatch? And of course it turned out to not be the case. It was like a costume or something right now. The Eddie in modern Western culture it has become just kind of a Himalayan variant of the SASQUATCH. You know if I say yet, you major picture, bigfoot or skunk ape. Whatever the regional variation of this creature is and I do think that is important is. To think about the fact that there are variations of the wild man. Being in various cultures, basically like a bipedal creature, covered in hair that is seen all around the world, but has distinct origins in each case right yes. But It was looking at I wanted to get a like a better snapshot of the this ape like beast. as far as like Himalayan traditions go, so I ran across a very very insightful. A piece titled Boonies Tales of the Yeti by Kuehne Zane Coton Tales of the creature exists through the Himalayan region. and. The author points to the different names that are given to this entity so into bip Tabet. There's gangs me or glacier man. There's me Sean Poe or strongman, and each in Poe or great man The SHERPAS College Yeti the lectures. Call it Chew Moon or Snow Goblin I like that one or low moon or Mountain Goblin in Paul. There's Nihil new or Ban Monchy. He didn't provide a track translation translation for those, but I'm assuming some treatment on these various ideas you know and then the Bhutanese say migo or strong man also Greg Poe so we get this idea of like figure of of savage cold strength with possible. You. Know Ga Goblin a qualities as well. So showed rights that the the Migo I idea here dates back to the pre Buddhist bond writings, the the pre Buddhist, animist religion. We mentioned this briefly in the last episode, the indigenous religion of Tibet it came up because Mount Kailash. Amount, Kyle, Lhasa in in the Himalayas is a peak that is holy, not just to Hindus who believe some of whom believed that Lord Shiva and Parvathi dwell on top of Mount Kailash, but it's also holy to some Buddhists, Jane's and members of the bond religion that the Tibetan indigenous religion. Religion and apparently some bon rituals call for the blood of Migo, a slain with a sharp weapon. WHOA, yeah, so yeah, so this was a pre existing idea, but then you get some Westerners involved writing, and then you get this idea exported, and and and reignited in the Western mind so British Traveller William Hugh night of the royals the royal. Society's Club recorded a Yeti citing and nineteen three on his way back to India from Tibet, and then was another sighting in eighteen, twenty, five by a Westerner by a Greek zoologist in a time Bazi. Who described like this unquestionably figure in outline was exactly like a human, being walking upright and stopping occasionally to uproot or pull at some Dwarf Rhododendron It showed up dark against the snow and as far as I could make out wore no clothes. And then later you had print sightings and and so forth in the nineteen fifties that helped popularize the idea of the Yeti in the West..

"We we begin with the inferno We have Eventually in Book Three Wind up in paradise but to get there Dante and Virgil have to scale the mount of purgatorio. The earthly purgatory So this is a mountain that is that extends from Earth to the Threshold of Heaven and at the very top of the mountain at the very peak. That's where the earthly paradise is located the Eden of Of the Old Testament and Christian traditions. Okay so this does this makes more sense also if you know something about like Medieval Catholic theology right which which had this belief in the idea of purgatory. Where it wasn't hell. You know you weren't condemned there forever but you were basically good Christian but you did some sins that were not atoned for in so you have to go to purgatory before you can get to Heaven Ryan so you spend some time there in you know. It's not hell but it's not nice. It's not pleasant and you're stuck there until you essentially serve out your sentence your purified of your sin and then you can be admitted into heaven right. It is a literary symbolic representation of penitent Christian life again. No one holds that the amount of purgatory is a real place. It in very much a part of literature here but does service kind of a nice example of some of the same ideas of of mythological holy mountain. Well one thing I do like about the idea of of Holy Mountains including purgatory. Actually the amount of purgatory is that they do seem like an indication of older versions of religion. That were more That could be situated on earth because the lots of parts of earth. We didn't know about right. You know so like Dante could say well. Yes you can enter hell through a cave here and you go down then you can go up the mountain of purgatory and that's over here and that would be okay because you know. There's lots of the earth that he didn't know what was there. You could just assume it's somewhere undiscovered. Yeah now they're of course plenty of actual mountains that are considered sacred either by association with a Mythical World Mountain. You see that. From time to time where there's a mythological mountain in a nearby mountain becomes associated with the same ideas through traditions and then if we if we as we have explored in past episodes there's also the added dimensions various Pyramids ziggurats that Have been constructed as a sort of artificial mountain allowing the people who built them to participate in Mountain Top sacred rites and observances in some cases in regions where such peaks are are not Readily available well. Yeah and just like in the case say like in Mount Kailash where it is believed that Lord Shiva and Parvathi are dwell on top of the mountain the Ziggurat I think is interpreted by many modern scholars to have been thought to be a home of the gods by the people who use them so like maybe the priests would go up there and do some kind of right but it was also believed that the God would come down and like sleep. The night on the top of the Ziggurat may made even live there for some period absolutely You know and another quick thing. I want to mention in looking at various mountainous. I noticed that in your primordial beings often for mountains out of the soil or as we mentioned earlier they their bodies or the bodies of loved ones become the mountains. And you know it's it's easy to sort of take the formation of mountains for granted with even just sort of you know a casual understanding say plastic tonics and so forth Daily basically a surface level understanding of geology. But imagine trying to understand what a mountain was. If you really had no idea about any of these things I mean unless you were witness to volcanic eruption Are there there are mountain formation processes? That are going to be readily observable and so it makes as much sense if anything to turn to some of these These these these purely mythological and cosmic explanations for why they're there well you can get even weirder with it. I mean one of my favorite examples is the coolest place I've ever been the Mount Stephen Trial by beds up in Britain Mount Stephen British Columbia which is part of the Burgess Shale formation that I went to a couple of years ago. And so you try to imagine that not having a any kind of scientific understanding you go up a mountain and then up near the top. There's just like a cliff where pieces of of Rocker shearing off and got the imprint of strange undersea monsters on them. And it's like you have no idea of figuring out how so this once was sedimentary rock at the bottom of an ocean and it has been pushed up and made into a mountain over hundreds of millions of years yeah even knowing the geologic geological processes in in in place here it's still amazing to behold and well beyond the scope of a human lifetime and and really sort of natural human perception absolutely so Ran Through some more examples here. Holy Mounds it. Kinda give a nice overview of some of these different Different ideas I was reading about the din. Hey Bonday the Navajo. Creation Myth Complete with the creation recreation of the sacred mountains across five worlds so that involves the idea that four other worlds preceded the one that we live in now and this is an idea that POPs up in various Mesoamerican in native American religions. for the Aztecs Kawata APAC served as the mythical sacred mountain the Serpent Mountain in their mythical homeland ascalon and according to Nicoletta mastery on Thought Co the Great Temple of knocked. Alon is thought to be a replica of this holy mountain so another example of recreating the Holy Mountain. An artificial holy mountain created in the likeness of mythological form in norse mythology human bureau is the mountain where the by Frost connects Asgard and mid guard. And this is home of the God. him doll and then there's also perhaps the less famous nearby org and this is the hiding place of the mead of poetry. Oh Yeah Mount. Fuji is important in Japanese culture. It represents according to Birnbaum quote quest for beauty and simplicity that lies at the heart of Japanese culture and I think yeah. Mount Fuji is is one of these examples. That like it's it's a cultural. Let's put part of its cultural pride like it is a part of the natural geography that people can take pride in and find a sense of identity in one thing. I think every time I see an image of Mount Fuji is it just looks very visually. Perfect is very like gracefully sloped. Symmetrical only can only get a work of art. Yeah exactly if you go to Tanzania you'll find Mount Kilimanjaro and Some of the that the CIA people of that region their myths and beliefs about the dorm volcano hold that it contains gateways to the spirit world in Chinese mythology though. There are a few different. Holy Mountains of note. One is mount Buju or Boozer Sean. And Its associated with the Premier Mountains in Central Asia. And it's one of the skype pillars holding up the heavens and again this is the mountain trope found in various cultures There's a a myth in which was damaged by the Water God Gong Gong in his ancient battle for supremacy against the Yellow Emperor and then after the Olympic. Victory the goddess. Newel ahead to repair the damage but in Chinese myth The the Kunlun is perhaps the most important as described in the excellent handbook of Chinese mythology gang on Turner. It is not only a key pillar of the sky but also an abode of Gods and immortals and there are really a lot of descriptions of it and its various films. Magical trees magical animals. It's really an entire sacred ecology unto itself and if there's a particular magical plant magical item or sacred water that you wish to obtain then coon is the place you'll find it. Scott it all. Yeah it's it's everything it includes. It holds for instance the sweet spring and Emerald Lake the parole tree. The tree the tree of immortality Cinnabar River which prevents death. If you drink it the week river where nothing floats so it has. It has all the magical items in just scaling it scaling to the appropriate Terrace on the mountain. According to some traditions means that you can take on divine powers yourself. Over natural forces perhaps acquire immortality or even take on spirit status yourself again provided you know where to climb and you can survive. The dangers various important. Mythic events are sometimes set on the mountain including the goddess new ause marriage to her brother and the subsequent population of the world so again. That's just a that's just a few examples there so many other sacred mountains That we didn't we didn't have time to include or just didn't have time to research but again if we left one out that you're particularly fond of or you've visited yourself certainly right into us. Well and these I would point out are just the sacred mountains that have accumulated like myths with Staying Power Liars. Because I would say there are a number of now pretty well observed phenomena that would under normal circumstances be creating new sacred mountain myths all the time and maybe we should explore that when we come back from a break..

"It summons feeling that someone's emotions and takes us outside of ourselves. E O Wilson Talks about this a little bit When he's discussing the Affiliate hypothesis and I think this is in the context of him. Generally talking about evolutionary explanations for our aesthetic preferences like why is it so often that pictures we find beautiful include vistas from a high point of view. You know being able to look down over a landscape and he offers some possible evolutionary explanations for that you know maybe this is like a more defendable point where you can see things coming towards you but yeah. It's hard to deny that when I see a mountain. I don't know if everybody feels this way as much as I do. When I see a mountain I want to go up it. I've never done mountain climbing hiking and stuff but I do want to go up to the top of the highest point in look down. We'll see I think you and I are different. In this regard. We've talked before on on the show. About how you have. No problem like walking up the cliff right. I'm a little more reluctant to do that. But still of icy like crazy Clifford P core or images of people mountain climbing. I do put my imagine myself up there and often terrify myself with the prospect on so I feel like that kind of mental transportation is inevitable but a couple of other things about just how we think about mountains. A common trope in various mythologies and we'll touch on some specific examples here in a bit. Are that the mountain or at least a mountain. Peak on some level connects earth to the sky so sky pillar situation where the mountain is holding up. The Cosmos are holding up the heavens holding up the sky or it is in some way an umbilical or a ladder and Or the mountain itself serves as a you know an an access Monday. The Central Tent Pole of Sacred Cosmos a stairway to heaven. If you will well that's really interesting. Because especially it pairs with older ways of thinking about the sky you know. It's not all that uncommon for ancient peoples to have conceived the sky as a place with solid ground. That you could walk around. In like a firmament there's a dome over the earth and And so you might wonder what does something hold up the dome. If they're solid ground up there that the gods can walk around in there must be something holding it up and so you can imagine. We'll maybe a mountain holds it up. That's the obvious. Answer in fact yes as you can see where this complex we've emerges of an attempt to understand what is what your visit whether you're actually observing. What is the objective reality and then also these mythical ideas of like what does about that structure and And incinerator and the importance of place in identity. There's also from a practical since the fact that the stand atop a great height is to gain a crucial vantage point. Yeah in some cases that can be purely strategic. This is the Wilson thing. Yeah he can see the movements of of her animals. You can see the movements of enemy troops et CETERA. But I also wonder if it could be something a little more existential. I wonder if if such heightened could be considered possibly a capable of invoking something like the overview effect that proposed state of mind or a state of euphoric interconnectedness that ensues when one sees the planet Earth from Outer Space. It's not quite the same certainly. I'm wondering if perhaps that affect scales down to some extent I can absolutely see that some astronauts report they look out the window of the International Space Station or of their. You know their vehicle and they see the earth from space and suddenly it just comes into sharp focus that that are petty squabbles. Are exactly that they're petty. You know then they vanish in the face of the fact that we're all trapped on this ball together and and it makes human concerns looks small and makes people feel a strong sense of sort of see. The common interest of all humanity and the connectedness of all of our concerns because the fate of the earth is the fate of all of us. And Yeah I can absolutely see that happening. I mean so imagine you normally. You live in a small village or a city where you are. You know you. You've got your day to day concerns. You're angry with your neighbor. You've got your politics that you're doing if you're like a priest or something and then you go up on a mountain and then you look down at the place where you come from the village or the city or the farms and suddenly everything looks tiny this basic shift in visual and optical perspective could very well trigger the same kind of mental shift people experience when they go into space. Yeah absolutely I was doing a little reading about about some of these ideas and Iran across the next one little paper by Edwin Birnbaum titled in Sacred Mountains themes and teachings and this is from Mountain Research and Development Twenty. Six and the author does a great job of just laying out some basics for instance lays out three basic ways that mountains are considered sacred We can as I lay these out. You can certainly think two examples we've discussed already and I think these will also be useful in considering Examples discussed in the rest of the podcast. So Birnbaum says first. Specific peaks are singled out as places of sanctity. They're supported by myths and practices such as pilgrimages meditation and even sacrifice number two they may contain sacred sites or objects like temples or shrines. Or even something more natural like spring and number three. The natural setting itself awakens a sense of wonder and all right. All three of these tend to work together. Birnbaum says on an individual's experience with the sacredness of Mountain. Furthermore Birnbaum defined Kim themes frequently seen in sacred mountains so they are roughly height center. Power God or a guy who the mountains God itself where it is the home of God's non as a place of worship. The Mountain Paradise or garden is a place where the ancestors of the dead may reside a source of Cultural Identity. A source of healing or or just a source of water. Which makes sense because I mean goes downhill exactly and also as a place of renewal so these are again. Ten broad themes Birnbaum identifies in the identity and characterization of sacred mountains all right well. We can look for these and examples of mountains that we talk about. So maybe I'll offer up one example of a mountain to think about and then maybe after that take a break and then look at some other okay but this first one is one. I mentioned in the episode where we talked about pressure because I think it's a commonly cited example of a very important holy mountain that's Holy IN MULTIPLE RELIGIONS. Not just one and this would be the peak of its peak in the Himalayas known as Mount Kailash Lhasa And so this is a holy mountain in multiple religions in Hinduism. This mountain is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva the destroyer of evil and of his wife. Parvathi who together sit in meditation at the summit of the mountain and so the sight of Mount Kailash a destination of pilgrimage for many Hindus who climb Fifteen thousand feet or about four point six kilometers up this ascent path to the base of the mountain but do not climb it summit in fact climbing the sacred summit is forbidden. And while we can't know for sure it's often said that the summit has never been climbed by a human instead it's believed virtuous for pilgrims to walk in a circle around the base of the mountain but not go up to the summit And this of course is not just a holy site for Hindus as I was saying but it's also holy for Buddhists for Jane's and for people of the indigenous religion of Tibetan on his bone. Yes a very ancient animist religion. Yeah now if you look at what? A picture of Mount Kailash looks like from below. I mean I'd say obviously I already know this about it when I've seen pictures of it but it's not hard to see how a person looking up at this peak would begin to think that something powerful and holy and forbidden resided there does not look welcoming to ascent like it doesn't look easy to climb and I think there's something powerful about that to see a place and think I mean especially in today's Day and age to think oh wonder if people have ever been on that spot as a person ever stood there and if the answer is even possibly no there is something sacred about that like. We've we've pretty screwed everything else up but that one peak is is pristine. You will not find a slim. Jim Rapper there. Yeah and that does seem important right. I mean part of the issue is anytime there's a mountain that people say has not been climbed. Obviously people are gonNA WANNA climate. So I've been reading. There's political controversy over this. It's like I think there was one point. I read a team of Spanish mountain climbers who announced that they were going to climb the mountain. But it's a it's a holy site you're not supposed to climb it Even though I think the team they were not Hindus the so they didn't share this belief about the religious forbidden this of the mountaintop but the government authorities prevented them from climbing the mountain. I think just because they wanted to avoid this leading to unrest or just I guess being seen as an insult to people who believe that the mountain should not be climbed I mean I do tend to wonder if people just started climbing a mountain like this all the time. Would it kind of break the spell of this story? Would it make people? Would it make the mountain seem less? Holy I don't know that's something to consider and after we come back from this next break. We're going to take that consideration into specific examples not only with actual mountains and some of the sacred ideas about the bidding also be looking at some Samantha logical and even fictional mountains which I guess are kind of inherently safe from from mountain climbers laundering.

So it is a great honor to be on there. And I think every year to add some, some more guys to it and it's just terrific. The Medusa that also have a little star out on the I think it's called up the plateau, or something outside little start it has my name, I think two or, and then it'd be plotted.
