i.e. ‘sin’, i.e. failure ‘to hit the mark’
A monad, i.e. a singularity (such as an algorithm or fractal) as closed systems, is incomplete (so Goedel). A monad (such as the ‘one (or mono) God’ as creation algorithm) is incomplete because it cannot prove itself as a differential, hence identifiable reality. In other words, for a monad to become complete it has to prove itself, i.e. be made real as a differential. And that happens only via random contact with an alternate, to wit, with ‘an other’ (i.e. a ‘second’ or relative, and which happens as mutated copy of itself).’
The original creation algorithm, to wit God (i.e. the Creation Matrix or Brahman) as mono-system is fundamentally incomplete. To complete itself, that is to say, to make itself real and identifiable it needs to copy and mutate (i.e. self-elaborate, i.e. relativize) itself (zillions of times, see the sculpture ‘Separation’ in Victor’s Way) and then contrive a random collision between its (zillion related, hence relative) mutated copies. However, as the originating monad (or algorithm) copies (i.e. self-elaborates) itself (‘in its own image’) in order to become at least relatively complete, meaning real and identifiable, it copies its incompleteness also.
If incompleteness is translated as ‘sin’, formerly understood to mean ‘missing the mark’ (possibly meaning unmarked (Sanskrit: nirguna) or unconditional) but derived from the Latin sons, meaning ‘guilty’, then all copies originating from the incomplete (monad) originator are born with Original Sin (i.e. because including the incompleteness of the originating algorithm/God). So St Augustine correctly stated that all humans are born with Original Sin. However he got it right but for the wrong reason.
St Paul’s true statement, to wit ‘Whereof by one man sin (i.e. incompleteness) came into the world…’, was deliberately misinterpreted by him (+ St Augustine + the Church, right up to the current Pope) to mean that it was ‘one man’ (i.e. the adam) who engineered that sin (by disregarding God’s health warning vis à vis the Tree of Good and Bad) rather than the sin (as incompleteness) of the incomplete God who engineered him. In
other words, sin, meaning incompleteness, was first manifested in the world by God’s first (relative) self-manifestation, that is to say, by the adam, and, obviously, by each one of his off-spring. The notion that ‘one man’s’ judgement error caused incompleteness (≈ sin) was deliberate Jewish (political) misinterpretation. The Jews couldn’t blame very well their Gods (i.e. the Elohim) for incompleteness (i.e. sin ≈ for missing the mark, more specifically, for being without a mark) so they invented the defenceless (because a relative elaboration or image) man as scapegoat for the Elohims’ fundamental incompleteness (i.e. sin).
That Paul (and the Church as a whole) should blame the scapegoat man for his ‘sin’ of incompleteness (and later on praise the scapegoat messiah for achieving completeness) but not his incomplete originator was very clever and highly effective guilt derived and driven politics.
Obviously it is God’s incompleteness that drives him/her (and all his/her copies as local elaborations) to engineer completeness.
The ‘conditioned arising’ (i.e. via relative momentary contact) of living systems as fundamental incompleteness was first proposed 2500 years ago by the Scythian Recluse, i.e. the Shakyamuni, later renamed ‘The Buddha.’ Incompleteness (specifically the incompleteness (i.e. as non-abidingness) of permanence ≈ momentariness) was later renamed ‘emptiness’ by Nagarjuna (Sanskrit: sunjata, see the Heart Sutra), the Vedanta fixated Brahmin scholar who masqueraded as Buddhist monk in order to subvert and destroy the Shakyamuni’s teaching about the fundamental cause of unhappiness, namely, as restated in everyday terms, namely that ‘the price of lunch was too high.’ Most normal humans realize that ‘there’s no such thing as a free lunch.’ The Shakyamuni and his Upanishadic pals believed that the price of lunch (i.e. life) was too high and that it was better ‘not to have lived at all’ than to have lived badly. Later generations of corrupt priests, needing to make a fast buck, promised a happy afterlife (such as the Tushita heavens and sat-cit-ananda).
