Ruach Hakodesh

machine and spirit of g-d


e ': (A) ten names called a prophet. these are: the axis. loyal.
worked. courier. Contract. watching. seeing. dreaming. prophet.
God's people: (i) ten names called the Holy Spirit are Names

in the rush of audo-translation the spirit is lost

Ben 'Azzai used to said, which meant he said it often, he often
spoke, "If one dies while speaking, it is a good sign for him;
if in silence, it is a bad sign for him." (Avot d' Rebbi Natan,
trans Goldin.) If one stops talking, one sinks into the chamber;
if one keeps talking, perhaps one can talk his way out of it.

none could do that. "By TEN names was the Holy Spirit called, to
with: parable, metaphor, riddle, speech, saying, glory, command,
burden, prophecy, vision." (trans Goldin.) "_Ruach Hakodesh_ was
called by ten names: parable, metaphor, riddle, speech, saying,
call, command, burden, prophecy, vision." (trans. Finkel.) Call
or glory, always a burden. The Ruach Hakodesh called and was
called, was a matter of physics, physicality, the body blown
across time and space, but the burden implies a weight, the mute
witnessing and assignation of substance. none could be that,
none could _be_ substance, only transformed in the chambers or
through poetics _into_ substance or its guise.

"The Hebrew language phrase ruach ha-kodesh is a term used in
the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) and Jewish writings to refer to the
Spirit of YHWH. The Hebrew term ruakh kodeshka, without the
definite article, also occurs. The "Holy Spirit" in Judaism
generally refers to the divine aspect of prophecy and wisdom. It
also refers to the divine force, quality, and influence of the
Most High God, over the universe or over his creatures, in given
contexts." (Wikipedia)

then of course: "nmf. wind; spirit, soul, nous; air; direction;
ghost, fantom, genie, hobgoblin, imp, incubus, jinn, jinni ,
kobold, phantom, shade, sprite, bogey, bogy; mind" (elsewhere)

none could do that. the g-d folds time and space, collapses
them, a literal Time Lord. the collapse turns death in upon
itself and we shall all live forever. the tibetan deity machine
continues the repetitions of lives with difference, differance.
is this a production or reproduction? to the extent i am
re-prodution i am already in a creation whose final act creates
this beginning of burden, call and command.
