在人類歷史的早期，你們這星球上的社會是個母系社會。後來發生了轉變，產生了父系社會。當你們做了這項社會的重大轉變時，你們便遠離了「你們情緒上的表達」(moved away from expressing your emotions)。你們對情緒上的表達加上了「脆弱」的標籤。就是在這個階段，男人也發明了魔鬼(devil)，和雄性的神(masculine God)。
沒錯。本質上，撒旦是一個男性的發明物(Satan was essentially a male invention.)。到最後，社會上的一切都跟著運行(恐懼是最容易讓民眾口耳相傳，用來愚民的管控方式)，但背離著自然情緒而發明一個「惡魔」這件事，卻全然只是在女人以情感來統禦一切的母系社會時代，男人背叛母系制度的一部分。那時女人掌管著所有的政府職位，所有的宗教權位，以及在商業、科學、學術和醫療上所有具有影響力的職位。
讓我們言歸正傳。但在我們談關於「魔鬼」的發明之前，讓我們先談一下權力。因為，這當然正是「撒旦之所以會被人發明出來」的關鍵所在。(Power. Because this, of course, is what the invention of Satan was all abojut.)
In an earlier part of your history, you lived on this planet in a matriarchal society. Then there was a shift, and the patriarchy emerged. When you made that shift, you moved away from expressing your emotions. You labeled it “weak” to do so. It was during this period that males also invented the devil, and the masculine God.
Neale: Males invented the devil?
Yes. Satan was essentially a male invention. Ultimately, all of society went along with it, but the turning away from emotions, and the invention of an “Evil One,” was all part of a male rebellion against the matriarchy, a period during which women ruled over everything from their emotions. They held all governmental posts, all religious positions of power, all places of influence in commerce, science, academia, healing.
Neale: What power did men have?
None. Men had to justify their existence, for they had very little importance beyond their ability to fertilize female eggs and move heavy objects. They were very much like worker ants and bees. They did the heavy physical labor, and made sure that children were produced and protected.
It took men hundreds of years to find and to create a larger place for themselves in the fabric of their society. Centuries passed before males were even allowed to participate in their clan’s affairs; to have a voice or a vote in community decisions. They weren’t considered by women to be intelligent enough to understand such matters.
Centuries more passed before they could think of actually holding the positions of leadership for which they finally had the chance to vote. Other posts of influence and power within their culture were similarly denied them.
Let’s get back to our narrative. But before we go on about the invention of “the devil,” let us talk a bit about power. Because this, of course, is what the invention of Satan was all about.
