Chapter 22

Religion from A Functional Perspective – To Keep Man from Returning to Cannibalism.

Even though religion as both a concept and a practice has taken a major role in human civilizations and throughout history, today it seems like religion is mostly rejected by large groups of people. By disconnecting and avoiding religion, men are preventing themselves from unleashing their true potential and creativity. 

Religion is crucial for mankind for two simple reasons: it efficiently organizes large groups of people and it grants access to infinite intelligence. A man is not a man without command and mastery over the spiritual realm. The most successful men in the world consider themselves religious and embrace the discipline, rituals and practices that come with the price of achieving infinite intelligence. We are limited in our power and our knowledge, but the spiritual is truly infinite. 

“You may love or hate religion, but what you must not deny is the usefulness and ability to civilize man into a useful group of people and in giving man a portal into the infinite intelligence and the divine creative energy that he needs to survive and thrive in this world.”

Hard times create strong men, and weak men create hard times. It is the inevitable cycle of life where great empires are built and destroyed. Unfortunately, millennials are currently living in the era of weak men that drown in ephemeral pleasure and limited desires. However, strength and greatness are determined by one’s self, and so this is the best time to seize everything you have ever wanted!
