Revealed Deism and the Limitations of Science

Revealed Deism: Many people who enlist under the banner of Deism declare that science is their source of Reason and Knowledge. Yet, the original Spiritual Deist movement looked to an Inner Source of Higher Knowledge that can be tapped into by those who understand the Laws of Nature and Creation. Yet, the incompleteness of our traditional science can easily be demonstrated -- quoting from The Law Of Action And Reaction -- All Actions Initiate An Opposite Re-Action http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AllActionsInitiateTheirOpposite

 In the same way that modern science has confirmed the existence of Spirit which it portrays as an UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ) -- and has therefore confirmed the validity of the analogy of Plato's Cave which portrays mankind as only being able to perceive SHADOW-IMAGES generated by the UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ) -- and perhaps even more important is the reality that science has now proven the connection of Mind and Spirit between physical bodies/objects.

 In Gary Zukav's book -- the title of which is taken from the Chinese expression for physics, wu li, which he translates as “patterns of organic energy”, and writes: “Bell’s theorem not only suggests that the world is quite different than it seems, it demands it. Something very exciting is happening. Physicists have ‘proved’ rationally that our rational ideas about the world in which we live are profoundly deficient”. What therefore is Bell's Theorem? Bell’s theorem, which was proposed in 1964 by J.S. Bell, a physicist working in Switzerland, was first confirmed experimentally in 1972. Physicist Henry Stapp, in a 1975 federal report called it the most “profound discovery of science”. Bell’s theorem succeeds in exhibiting the bizarre nature of the subatomic world. Experiments show that if paired particles which are identical twins in their polarity fly apart, and the polarity of one is changed by an experimenter, the polarity of the other particle changes instantaneously. Thus, even though from a physical perspective the two particles appear to us as separate, it has been proven that the particles remain mysteriously connected regardless of the fact that there is no physical connection.

 Why is the reality of Bell's Theorem portrayed as the most “profound discovery of science”? The crux of the problem that has limited man's thinking to that of the intellectual dark ages, is found in the statement that the mind of man sees only what he is prepared to comprehend! And this organic (human) limitation imposed upon our perceptive-vision, inhibits our ability to understand the physical-forms and physical-reality of what we do see with our physical-eyes and senses. In the above link entitled The True Facts And Realities Of Life, I demonstrate that our organic human vision does not permit us to perceive the Source of the images we see that is generated from an UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD. While Bell's Theorem has proven the connectedness of the physical objects we do see, our undeveloped and immature physical eyes and senses cannot detect or comprehend the reason and purpose of these (√¶theric) connections. And the fact that Bell's Theorem not only proves that the physical images we see with our physical senses are connected, but also that the physical objects are affected by the mind of mankind in ways that the vast majority of people don't understand -- unless they consciously develop the ability to perceptively-gaze into what modern science has portrayed as the UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD. And most importantly with respect to the findings of Bell's Theorem, that what we imagine we see is affected by our own thinking, is demonstrated in the text of Itzhak Bentov’s book which reveals that: “The quantum theory asserts that there is no way one can measure some sets of things, like momentum and position, together very accurately... because the consciousness of the experimenter interacts with the experiment itself. Therefore, it becomes possible that the attitude of the experimenter must also influence the outcome of any particular experiment” (Preface to Stalking The Wild Pendulum, by Itzhak Bentov).

 Quoting the Widipedia article on Bell's Theorem: "The title of Bell's seminal article refers to the 1935 paper by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen that challenged the completeness of quantum mechanics. ...After the EPR paper, quantum mechanics was in an unsatisfactory position: either it was incomplete, in the sense that it failed to account for some elements of physical reality". In the same way, Einstein experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new emerging reality of atomic physics, and wrote in his autobiography: “All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed completely. It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”. In much the same fashion, the European physicist Niels Bohr stated that “…The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.” What this means is exactly as stated by Einstein when he stated: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics). What is being stated is that the primary focus of science where only what was seen with one's physical eyes, has now been rendered inadequate and incomplete -- it being focused totally on observable matter -- because the emerging body of facts and evidence now demonstrates that what we perceive physically, is a projection from an UNSEEN Source where True Reality exists. Which provokes the question: What is being projected? Thus, the statement by astronomer James Jeans: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff” -- both demonstrate the reality that there is nothing but Projected Thought. Which means that you are a thought that is being projected in this world by your True-Self that dwells in the reality of an UNSEEN CAUSAL FIELD.

 That the Original Spiritual Deists were able to move beyond the limitations of traditional science, and learn directly from the Inner Source, is demonstrated in the opening of the post entitled Why did Deists reject Revealed Religion? (see https://www.facebook.com/groups/2147020625512515/permalink/2202326333315277/ )

 Why did Deists reject Revealed Religion? Because it alienated believers from gaining access to the Source of Knowledge and Truth within them. In the words of Deist Giordano Bruno: "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge." And the True Deist Path and Objective is to understand the Natural Laws that enable the person to tap into this Inner Soul-Flame of Knowledge that has the capacity to Reveal all Truths to the Mind of the genuine seeker.

Time to Turn Back To The Constitution And The Rights of Man

For many years my wife and I also did not vote -- for many of the same reasons expressed in the Meme below.  But then the Communists ousted the Liberals, and have been moving to take away the Freedom and Liberty that is essential to peace, prosperity and the Rights of Man as expressed by Thomas Paine and our Constitutional Framers.

 On the television program The Caller, Brenda Lee Johnson explained why sometimes you must get involved (quoting): I remember once hearin' a speech about what it meant to be an officer of the CIA and the man who gave this speech talked about the struggle to control civilization and how we're always fightin' the same fight, and he used the dark ages as an example. And he talked about how on the one side you had the pragmatic king who was greedy and power hungry and basically took advantage of people whenever he could. And on the other side you had the idealistic church forcin' everyone to follow the same rules, believe the same thing, and all that. Neither the king nor the church was ever completely right or wrong, both sides ended up doin' terrible things to get what they wanted, really terrible things. The point of the story was this, that this struggle from the dark ages had been goin' on forever, and the church and the king might take on different philosophies but they would always fight each other, pragmatists and idealists, and at most times, you're better off standin' on the sidelines, lettin' them duke it out. But every once in a while, one side or the other decides it might be better just to blow up the whole world just to get its own way and when that happens you can't stand on the sidelines any more. You have to pick a team. So for tonight anyway, we're servin' the king.

 In our present time it is important work against Marxist Socialism, and for Constitutional Freedoms. The bottom line is that any time either church or state works to homogenize the thinking of the people (see The Deists And The Homogenization Factor at http://ThomasPaineRedux.nazirene.org/#homogenization ) -- most often to control them -- the system is very quickly taken over by despotic control that inhibits man's mental and spiritual development -- i.e., the harsh and often cruel reality of man's suffering is presented in an article by Walter E. Williams entitled America's Move Toward Tyranny where he wrote: "Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis warned, 'The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.' The freedom of individuals from compulsion or coercion never was, and is not now, the normal state of human affairs. The normal state for the ordinary person is tyranny, arbitrary control and abuse mainly by their own government."

 It would be sinful to just sit back and permit the modern Marxist-Socialism of the Left, to further undermine the Rights of Man in their quest to rule over the United States and the American People.

The Death of Free Speech Equals the Suppression of Truth


While Christians attempt to take credit for the Constitutional form of Government in the United States, in view of the fact that most Christian Churches are offended by the Truth of the Gospels, it was the Deists and Masons who were responsible for a government that cannot make any laws infringing the God-Given Right of free-speech. 

One of the Facts of Life that are suppressed by the majority of western religious, secular and cultural institutions, is the reality that all the souls who are presently living in the world, have lived here countless times prior to this present time-frame.  And, all the leaders of the past who we study in the history books, are presently the same leaders on the world's stage today.  And because these leaders in most instances bring their distant past into the present, on countless occasions I have stated that the Truth could not be told, if the original disciples of Jesus had not been born in the 18th century time-frame, to bring about the Constitutional form of government of the United States. And they incarnated together as a group, in order to create the necessary secular environment where the Truth that offends the religious and political institutions, could be told.  And in this respect, I have many times stated that I could never have written the great number of websites that I have which restore the Original Gospel teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ) that were suppressed by the Church, if I dwelled in any country other than the United States.  Which statement of fact has offended many of my critics who are proponents of the European forms of government. 

To prove me right, the European Court of Human rights ruled that, "freedom of speech does not extend to include defaming the prophet of Islam" -- which means that the Truth can no longer be spoken or written in the European nations (see https://www.foxnews.com/world/defaming-muhammad-does-not-fall-under-purview-of-free-speech-european-court-rules ).  What are the ramifications of this ruling?  What it means is that, in the same way that the Church of Rome corrupted the Original Gospel Teachings, historical men who were Mohammed impostors, corrupted both Islam and the Qur'an (see http://Islam.Ebionite.com ) -- making the Muslim religion a spiritual abomination.   Moreover, the many men who historically were personified as Mohammed, corrupted both the spiritual core of Islam with respect to the teachings on the True Prophet, and also the important teachings on the necessity to make the Journey to Mecca -- thereby rendering the religion of Islam spiritually impotent.  And while under the US Constitution it remains legal to speak and present the Truth and the Facts, this essential freedom has been declared illegal throughout Europe.    And this ruling not only impacts people such as myself and the articles we author, but also inhibits more spiritually-minded Muslims from openly speaking the Truth.  And in many ways this ruling renders Europe the very embodiment of what can rightly be portrayed as a "snowflake" protected safe-space or domain -- wherein it was found by the European Court of Human Rights which ruled that the Austrian courts had “carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected.”  Which means that the religious "feelings" of Muslims is protected against a critics freedom of speech.  And since many of the impostors who were personified as Mohammed were true despots who murdered the innocent and sexually exploited both women and those who they took as slaves -- which sin against mankind continues even in our present time-frame -- this ruling by the Court is the first step in the negation of the essential God-Given Rights of all Europeans.

The Foundation Of Deism

The Foundation Of Deism - By Thomas Paine (Redux) 

At its Core and Essence, Deism is a Spiritual Movement -- which means that it is impossible to discuss the Foundation of Deism, without exploring important spiritual subjects and concepts that set Deism apart from the tenets of Revealed Religion.  In our modern time-frame, many quasi-agnostics have aligned themselves with Deism because of its positions against the Church and Revealed Religion.  Resulting in the fact that, at the mere mention of spiritual concepts, these quasi-agnostics immediately are turned off -- mainly because to their thinking and mindset, Deism is more of an academic and secularized movement, than a spiritual movement.  Yet, it is impossible to understand the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, without understanding important spiritual concepts that is the very Foundation of Deism and its opposition to all forms of Revealed Religion.  Why is this important?  At any time that mankind is willing to understand the Natural Laws, and reach out and consciously invoke them, the organic curtain to Higher Knowledge and Enlightenment begins to be torn down -- immersing the sincere Deist in a level of Knowing that exceeds any of the Universities and Libraries of this world. 
In Einstein's Unfinished Symphony, he stated "I am not interested in this phenomenon or that phenomenon," Einstein had said earlier in his life. "I want to know God's thoughts – the rest are mere details".  Yet, only the sincere Deist who understands the Natural Laws of Creation and is willing to apply them within his own mind and being, is able to "...know God's Thoughts", and it is this Knowledge of the Natural Laws that is the Core and Essence of Deism.  Enlightened seekers understand that it is impossible to begin to open the door to Higher Knowledge, without exploring many of those Universal Concepts that can be classified as Spiritual.   But with the influx of quasi-agnostics who portray themselves as Deists, the original foundation of Deism has been replaced with the thinking of academia and science -- the leaders of which have been raised up to the priest-craft of Revealed Deism.  To the mindset and thinking of agnostics, modern science has ripped down the curtain of ignorance and superstition which they see as the foundation of the Church -- without understanding that it was the Church that corrupted the tenets of Deism that was an important part of the Original Gospel teachings.  But what modern science has truly  accomplished, is proving that the the mystic and those who walked the spiritual path was correct (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ) -- and the Truth can only be proven with the restoration of Enlightened Deists who understand and can apply the Laws of Nature and Nature's God.  Which means that only those professors of academia and scientists who understand spiritual concepts and the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, will be able to lead mankind through the door of Enlightenment and True Knowing.   When rightly understood, Plato was a Deist (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ) -- and he possessed the essential knowledge of the Natural Laws which permitted him to bridge the divide between the illusions of this realm, and what modern science has portrayed as the UNSEEN SOURCE of the incomplete images that we see and interact with in this world of shadow-images.  
While Deists and Theists equally believe in God, the primary difference is that the Deists understand the Natural Laws that enables the seeker/believer to develop the necessary mental and spiritual maturity that permits them to connect directly with God.   When the Gospel teachings are properly understood, Jesus was a Deist who applied his self-knowledge of the Natural Laws to overcome organic human limitations, thereby enabling him to connect with the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God), arise to the level of becoming Enlightened and Empowered by the Anointing of his Mind (Messiah/Christ) -- evolving through the necessary subsequent stages of birth -- and becoming the embodiment of Wholeness, Perfection and Completion -- which is the ultimate destiny of all of mankind.   In fact, the Original followers and disciples of Jesus maintained that ANYONE who understood the Natural Laws and would apply this Knowledge to their lives, would know and achieve all that the historical man Jesus did.  But this wisdom was not only rejected by Revealed Religion, but this essential knowledge was suppressed by the Church -- thereby maintaining the people in a state of subjection and abject spiritual ignorance.   In the words of Harriet Tubman: "I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves."  If more people understood the Natural Laws of Creation -- and applied that knowledge to their lives -- they could then free themselves from the limitations of organic human consciousness that has created a barrier between mankind and God, man's true Source of Being. 
One of the major differences between Theists and Deists is seen in the fact that Theists fail to understand the meaning of the Sabbath or Seventh Day (see The Spiritual Sabbath http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#SpiritualSabbath ).  In not understanding the Natural Laws, Theists believe that after the Seventh Day of Rest in the allegorical Genesis account, that God got back to work in the daily functioning and intercessions in the workings of this world.   Genesis chapter two reads: "Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done."  Where the Deist understood the words that "...the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array ...God had finished the work he had been doing" -- understand the meaning of the word FINISHED -- the Theist asserted that it is necessary for Creator-God to perpetually intervene in the day to day affairs of this world.  In contradistinction to the position of the Theists, the Deist position was that Creator-God brought forth and initiated a series of Laws which He (quoting Wikipedia: Deism): "...endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then abandoned it to the operation of these powers acting as second causes."  What is said to be the Deist theology has often been portrayed as the Clock Maker Universe -- i.e., (Quoting): "The clockwork universe theory compares the universe to a mechanical clock wound up by a supreme being, or initiated by the Big Bang. It continues ticking along, as a perfect machine, with its gears governed by the laws of physics, making every single aspect of the machine completely predictable. Before the emergence of quantum mechanics, many scientists believed that the Universe was completely deterministic in this way. ...This conception of the universe consisted of a huge, regulated and uniform machine that operated according to natural laws in absolute time, space, and motion. God was the master-builder, who created the perfect machine and let it run. God was the Prime Mover, who brought into being the world in its lawfulness, regularity, and beauty. This view of God as the creator, who stood aside from his work and didn’t get involved directly with humanity, was called Deism (which predates Newton) and was accepted by many who supported the 'new philosophy'."  How did the Deists arrive at their conclusion?  Because Jesus and all enlightened seekers were Deists who understood the Laws of Nature, they were able to learn from God about the functioning of the Natural Laws of Creation.  Because the Theists did not understand the Natural Laws -- and they therefore embraced the doctrine of men instead of being able to learn directly from God -- the Natural laws remained an unknown enigma to the very foundation of their thinking. 
Again, lets closely examine the position of  Deism which embodies the above concepts on a "...Supreme being [that] does not intervene in human affairs or suspend the natural laws of the universe ...assert[ing] that God (or "The Supreme Architect") has a plan for the universe that is not to be altered by intervention in the affairs of human life."   These Laws that were instituted as "...a plan for the universe that is not to be altered by intervention in the affairs of human life", because these Laws not only drive mankind to his Destiny envisioned and ordained by Creator-God, but they accomplish this by maintaining a Spiritual Living Bio-Feedback environment that perpetually returns to each individual person the fruit of their own words and actions.   And it is these same Laws that were imbued with the Power of God to advance man in his journey of the soul, by immersing him in a world of mental imagery impressed into the forms of matter.   Therefore, once this higher reality is understood, what the scriptures do is reformat the mental imagery in such a way, that when the scriptures are applied internally as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ), the scriptures act as a catalyst that is used to expand man's organic reasoning and depth of mind to the degree with the seeker is able to move beyond the natural limitations of man's organic level of consciousness, and perceive and comprehend man's higher soul reality and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God. 
Does a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that God "...endowed ...with self-sustaining and self-acting powers"that were perfectly programmed and totally attuned to the condition of the individual person, need intervention to bring about the results for which the system was specifically designed to achieve?   The journey of the soul and the very Will of Creator-God that has imbued the Laws of Nature and all of Creation with the ability to bring about the Design of God, is embodied in the words: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11 NKJ).    
Mankind has a Destiny that he cannot escape -- and contrary to what is published by organized religion, there are no shortcuts that exempt a person from fulfilling the above Word of Creator-God who enacted the Laws in the Alpha of Creation.   In the parable of the prodigal son, the Father does not intervene in the life and hardships of the son while he dwells and aimlessly wanders in the tribulations of the Far Country under the control of the Citizen (consciousness) of this world.  Only when the prodigal son is portrayed as "coming to his senses", and begins the return journey back to his source in the Edenic Kingdom, does the Father meet him while he is still a "long way off".  The Father did not rush into the Far Country to intervene in the affairs of his son, because as stated in Genesis: "...the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array" -- and the Laws that Creator-God "...endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then" these Laws maintained "...the operation of these powers acting as second causes" which ensured that the "...word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it".  And it is these Natural Laws of Creation that were imbued with  "...powers acting as second causes" that acts as a Bio-Feedback Organism that monitors and maintains the progress of each Soul -- causing each Soul to "...accomplish what [God] pleases" -- causing each Soul to "...prosper in the thing for which [God] sent it" -- causing each Soul to achieve the Wholeness and Perfection that God envisioned to be the Destiny of all of mankind in the Omega of Creation.   If the foregoing is true, and each Soul cannot return to God and the Edenic Kingdom without fulfilling the Law and evolving mentally and spiritually to Wholeness and Completion, then this process where the Natural Laws act as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism can only bring the Word of God about, when each Soul is subject to the Laws over the course of however many lives is required.  
The foundation of Deism is the Clock-Maker Universe which is the basis of the Deist position that Creator-God does not DIRECTLY intervene in the affairs of this world.  The problem is that few modern Deists understand the Clock-Maker Universe, because the foundation of the Clock-Maker Universe is the Journey of the Soul over the course of many lifetimes.  And because those quasi-agnostics who have adopted Deism have been reared in a spiritually sterile academic environment, those who claim to be Deists in our modern society, are incapable of understanding the very foundation of Deism.  Why is the Deist Foundation important?  Because the Clock-Maker Universe represents the gateway to higher consciousness.  And without understanding the Clock-Maker Universe, all attempts to mature and evolve the mind beyond the lower levels of human organic consciousness, will be flat-lined.  Which provokes the question: Why does Deism play a pivotal role in the development of the mind?  Because it focuses on the Natural Laws of Creation that must be prevailed over, in order to open the door to Higher Consciousness.
When rightly understood, the tenets of Deism was rejected by the Church that corrupted the teachings of Jesus -- which in teachings in their foundation, were Deist.  Yet, 18the century Deism represented a return to the Original Gospel teachings that the Church suppressed.  In a letter from Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Rush, Jefferson wrote respecting the relationship of Deism and Christianity: "To the corruptions of Christianity I am indeed opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in preference to all others; ascribing to himself every human excellence; & believing he never claimed any other"  This same exact thought is expressed  in the Wikipedia article under Deism: History of religion and the deist mission.   Most deists saw the religions of their day as corruptions of an original, pure religion that was simple and rational. They felt that this original pure religion had become corrupted by "priests" who had manipulated it for personal gain and for the class interests of the priesthood in general.   According to this world view, over time "priests" had succeeded in encrusting the original simple, rational religion with all kinds of superstitions and "mysteries" – irrational theological doctrines. Laymen were told by the priests that only the priests really knew what was necessary for salvation and that laymen must accept the "mysteries" on faith and on the priests' authority. This kept the laity baffled by the nonsensical "mysteries", confused, and dependent on the priests for information about the requirements for salvation. The priests consequently enjoyed a position of considerable power over the laity, which they strove to maintain and increase. Deists referred to this kind of manipulation of religious doctrine as "priestcraft", a highly derogatory term.  Deists saw their mission as the stripping away of 'priestcraft' and 'mysteries' from religion, thereby restoring religion to its original, true condition – simple and rational. In many cases, they considered true, original Christianity to be the same as this original natural religion. 
Because many of the Deists understood the Natural Laws, this knowledge enabled them to tap into the Higher Source of Knowledge that is beyond the limited understanding of mankind in this three-dimensional world.   Like the first century Spiritual Christians, the Enlightened Deists understood that the tenets of Theism was born out of the priest-craft of the Church who were peddling faux-salvation to the multitude of people for profit and political power.  The Enlightened Christians and Deists understood that, in order to evolve the mind out of the cocoon of ignorance, the person had to seek self-knowledge, and understand the Natural Laws that was the foundation of the Clock-Maker Universe.  Which meant that the person also had to understand the Journey of the Soul over the course of many lifetimes.  But to even suggest that the Soul evolved over the course of many lives -- and that Creator-God did not directly intervene in the affairs of man because the Natural Laws intimately monitored every step of his mental and spiritual evolution -- was incomprehensible to the majority of people who neither understood the Natural Laws, or the very purpose and objective of the lives they were living.  From a Deist perspective, both Thomas Paine and Jefferson possessed varying degrees of past-life recall -- but to reveal their source of information was drawn from their experiences in the previous lives their soul had lived, would have undermined their efforts to bring about a government of Freedom, Liberty and Exceptionalism.    
Deism maintains that Creator-God does not directly intervene in the affairs of man. Why? In the same way that once fertilized, an embryo develops in accord with the Natural Laws, the same is true with respect to all of Creation. And herein lies the problem -- i.e., where physical development can be portrayed as a cookie-cutter operation, mental development requires choice and the exercise of freewill -- which can only be accomplished when each person is able to live out their life in accord with the choices they have made.  Therefore, when the Laws that were put into effect are understood, perhaps the best way to understand these Laws that the Deists portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, is as a Living Spiritual Bio-Feedback Organism that like a developing embryo, dynamically evolves each soul to completion by intimately responding to our every action, reaction and failure to act -- and responds appropriately when the time is opportune for our greatest learning and advancement. That these Laws were put into action in the Alpha of Creation -- and are the Perfect Works of Creator-God that is Dynamically connected to the movement of man -- is a reality of the Laws that the core Deists attempted unsuccessfully to convey to the Theists and organized religion.  
What the Spiritual Christians and the Enlightened Deists of the past understood that modern Christians remain ignorant of, is the fact that the man Jesus evolved into what can be portrayed as an Anointed (Messiah/Christ) Mind by fulfilling the (Natural) Laws -- i.e., the same Natural Laws that impact the mind and being of all mankind.  And while the fact that Jesus was portrayed as a Holy Man who fulfilled the Natural Law and arose to the stature of achieving a condition of At-One with the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God), was represented in the very Words that God spoke to mankind at the baptism of Jesus -- but these words were changed by the later Church that corrupted the original Gospel teachings (see The Unforgivable Sin Of The Church http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheUnforgivableSinOfTheChurch ).  Which provokes the question: How was the Laws fulfilled?  Within Jesus' own mind and being.  And this fact of human reality is presented in the witness of his Ebionite Nazirene disciples who stated that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).  Further, with the corruption of the Gospels by the Gentile Church, it was no longer understood that the Soul who lived as the historical man Jesus arose to this elevated plateau where he was able to totally fulfill the (Natural) Laws of Creation, over the course of many lifetimes. 
The word Christ is a Greek word that the Bible translators choose not to render in the English language because it means Anointed -- which in Hebrew, is Messiah.   In the Old Testament there were 21 people who were portrayed as having been Anointed.  And this is demonstrated in the quotations of St. Jerome in the Gospel of the Hebrews which reads: "If thy brother (saith he) have sinned by a word and made thee amends, seven times in a day receive thou him. Simon his disciple said unto him: Seven times in a day? The Lord answered and said unto him: Yea, I say unto thee, unto seventy times seven times. For in the prophets also, after they were anointed by the Holy Spirit, the word of sin was found."   Therefore, when properly understood, not only were others Anointed (Christ/Messiah) -- and therefore could be portrayed as the Christ -- but anyone who achieves a certain mental and spiritual level can be Anointed.  And what the original followers and disciples of Jesus said, was that anyone who fulfills the (Natural) Laws within their own mind and being, To THE DEGREE THAT THEY CAN RECEIVE IT, can become the Anointed (Christ/Messiah).   That all of mankind can become the Anointed, is demonstrated in the words: "You, however, have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth" (1 John 2:20).   And the original disciples and followers of Jesus understood the relationship between fulfilling the (Natural) Laws and becoming the Anointed, as stated in the position that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely" -- which enlightened understanding was the result of the original followers and disciples "...having an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth".  And it was this same Power of Enlightenment TO THE DEGREE THEY COULD RECEIVE IT, that was the Source of the Deists understanding of the Natural Laws and the foundational Clock-Maker Universe.    
The Law that is being noted in the foregoing, is the Natural Laws of Consciousness that the Enlightened Deists made reference to in the words, the Laws of Nature and Nature's God.   And that all of mankind possesses this same innate potential to overcome the organic human limitations imposed upon them by the Natural Laws, is presented in the above words that "...Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ".  What this means is that anyone who fulfills the Natural Laws within their own mind and consciousness in the manner that the historical man Jesus did, can themselves arise -- level upon level of mental and spiritual development -- to the same elevated plateau of mind and spirit that Jesus did.  The historical man Jesus had received the Anointing over many of the previous lives his Soul had lived -- and quoting St. Jerome, it was in that life that he had arose to the level where it was stated of him in the Gospel of the Hebrews: "The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, not partially as in the case of other holy men: but, according to the Gospel written in the Hebrew speech, which the Nazarenes read, 'There shall descend upon him the whole fount of the Holy Spirit'".   That the inner core of Deists understood this Power of the Anointing that each seeker can receive in accord with their ability to receive it, is why they placed such emphasis on the Natural Laws.  Further, that the Enlightened Deists understood that it was the Church that corrupted and suppressed the Original Teachings of Jesus, that was the cause of man's ignorance -- casting him down into the dungeons of the Dark Ages where mankind was possessed by abject unknowing and superstition.  
Using the writings of PanDeist Giordano Bruno who was an ordained Roman Catholic priest of the Dominican order, Bruno understood that each life can be rightly portrayed as an intense lesson intended to bring about the mental and spiritual and maturity of the soul.   And this is demonstrated where Bruno explained that: "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body".  Why?  Because each life is a step in the advancement of the Soul as it evolves from the Alpha of Ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light.   And thus, Giordano Bruno explained that "Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body."   Why is each life orchestrated by the acts performed in that soul's previous lives?  Because each life is a reflection of that soul's need for development, in order to achieve the necessary Wholeness and Completion in the Omega of our Destiny.  
Why is there evil in the world?  Why doesn't God intervene in the affairs of the man?  Why does God permit mankind to experience suffering and death?  Unless you can correctly answer these questions, there will remain an obstacle in your thinking that will inhibit your mental development.  As to the answer: Because each person has either authored their present life by virtue of their own words and/or actions in the previous lives their Soul has lived, or has chosen their present life in order to grow and evolve through the experiences that life has to offer.   Mental and Spiritual growth is dependent upon the choices we make, the exercise of freewill, and the experiential-knowledge derived from the paths in life that each of us has chosen to take -- as seen in the statement of Bruno: "Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life".   
The vast majority of mankind dwell in a state of Spiritual Amnesia (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia ) -- causing them to live lives of self-imposed abject ignorance.  Why?  Because they possess no understanding of the Natural Laws -- how the Natural Laws effect every aspect of the life they are living -- and because they can't intellectually conceive of the Causal Factors of life, their countless questions remain unanswered.  Because the most crucial questions pertaining to life remain unanswered, the great void in man's understanding causes his intellect to remain hopelessly immature and undeveloped. What is being personified in the foregoing words, is an elementary understanding of the Natural Laws that provide a crucial comprehension of the Causal Factors of the life that you are living. Which means that without understanding the Natural Laws, science, religion, academia and philosophy all remain shackled to abject ignorance -- unable to answer crucial questions that are necessary to comprehend man's own true higher reality.  And when rightly understood, all the confusion in life -- all the great voids in the quest of science -- all the conflicting Bible interpretations -- all the opposing sects, schools of philosophical thought, and the countless conflicting opinions among mankind -- are all caused by this self-imposed arrested mental developmental condition that causes man to dwell in a state of Mental-Suppression.  Unless you understand the Causal-Factors of life -- and especially the life you are presently living -- including the Causal-Factors of the events you have been experiencing and sometimes confronting in life -- then your whole perception of life will be either defective, or hopelessly immature -- and it will remain virtually impossible for your mind to evolve and mature beyond its present level of comprehension.
Science has already proven the wisdom of the analogy of Plato's Cave and the parallel Gospel portrayal of the Outer Darkness of mind and being (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ) -- and because they close their minds to the Causal Factors of the Natural Laws, they choose the path of blind-ignorance.  While modern science has proven that this physical realm of appearances is a projection of a Higher Unseen Causal-Reality that they know virtually nothing about, their fossilized Linear-based foundation of thinking inhibits them from perceiving and understanding the crucial Causal-Factors that would provide an answer to their most crucial of questions.  In an article entitled, Things That Science Can't Explain by Dr. Claude Swanson, he writes: "There are many things modern science cannot explain, and yet they occur anyway. This includes phenomena in the 'hard sciences' as well as in the paranormal. These effects are now being proven in the laboratory, even though they defy present scientific theory. These unfolding mysteries point the way to a new, deeper science, a science which no longer denies spirit and consciousness, but acknowledges and embraces them.  In the past three decades scientific evidence has accumulated which proves that the present scientific paradigm is broken and fatally flawed".  The problem is that the emerging body of science demonstrates that the vision of the mystic in the analogy of Plato's Cave is valid -- and what man sees with his physical senses is not the Source -- which Source exists in the unseen Forces and Realities that are beyond man's organic vision.  From the perspective of the fossilized science of the past:  If they can't see it, then from their perspective, it does not exist. The reality portrayed by modern physicists that what organic man sees with his physical eyes is a shadow-image of a higher unseen reality, simply boggles their mind.  Because they have been proven wrong, they remain in denial of the fact that because what is portrayed as the UNSEEN Source is not within the spectrum of frequency that man can perceive with his physical eyes, then it does not exist. In like manner, Christianity knowingly continues to use corrupted biblical texts with the most important teachings suppressed and removed, because they have permitted themselves to remain totally alienated from the Original Gospel Teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ). Without understanding the Causal-Factor of all the events of life, it is impossible for the mind to evolve beyond a certain level of organic human comprehension.
Every event in everyone's life has a Causal-Factor.  What is a Causal-Factor?  When Jesus said to the man: "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14), what he was portraying was a reality of the Natural Laws of Creation that interact with each of us in the manner of a Living Bio-Feedback Organism.   And what he was in fact stating is that the Laws which intimately interact with our every word and action, has brought about and initiated what we experience today -- and what we experience is the result of our words and actions drawn from our own past -- i.e., Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same” (Job 4:8 NKJ); “Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies” (Prov 1:31 NKJ); “But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception” (Hosea 10:13 NIV); “God will give to each person according to what he has done” (Rom 2:6 NIV); “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Gal 6:7-8 NIV); “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ); “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man” (Gen 9:6 NIV); “His disciples asked him [Jesus], Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (Jn 9:2 NIV)
Take especial notice of the foregoing words: "He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity" -- which is the basis and the foundation of the Constitution of the United States.  Those who attempt to use either church or state to force another into submission against their own will, will find themselves in the future born under the control of a despotic regime where people do not possess Unalienable God-Given Rights.  Regimes such as Cuba, Communist Soviet Union, China, or a whole host of countries where Liberty and Freedom is subject to secular control.  Even Socialism is an infringement upon the Natural Laws -- and those who support Socialism of any other such government that imposes upon the Rights of the Individual, will cause the supporters of Socialism to be born into regimes where they will be denied Freedom and Liberty.   Prof. Walter Williams lived previously as one of our Constitutional Framers, and  in a commentary entitled America's Move Towards Tyranny he presented an important warning to the American People where he wrote: "Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis warned, 'The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.' The freedom of individuals from compulsion or coercion never was, and is not now, the normal state of human affairs. The normal state for the ordinary person is tyranny, arbitrary control and abuse mainly by their own government. While imperfect in its execution, the Founders of our nation sought to make an exception to this ugly part of mankind's history. Unfortunately, at the urging of the American people, we are unwittingly in the process of returning to mankind's normal state of affairs."    In similar fashion Thomas Paine wrote: "Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil in its worst state an in tolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer!" -- and of course the immortal words: "That government is best which governs least".    Then there is the statement attributed to Thomas Jefferson, Barry Goldwater and Gerald Ford: "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have".   Those who support the tenets of Big Government, Socialism, Communism, and Theocracies, will be born into regimes where they will not possess the necessary Freedom and Liberty to achieve their full potential.  
Without the essential knowledge of the Natural Laws that are the motivating force of the Causal-Factors of your life, you will continue to dwell in abject confusion -- forced to interpret the events of life as chance, an accident, good fortune, the stoke of good or bad luck, and even an act of God.  Yet, when the Causal-Factors are understood, nothing could be farther from the Truth.  Everyone's life is pre-destined and orchestrated by the Causal-Factors based upon each Soul's own previous actions -- i.e., "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ).   Which reality is confirmed in the profound statement by the Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).   Origen then goes on and writes with respect to each person's station in life "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel [person] has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor."   And, as stated in the foregoing, each person's birth into this life is determined by that person's own past actions -- i.e., "...either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor". 
Without understanding the Natural Laws that act as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism -- initiating Causal-Factors both positive and negative in response to all the events of life -- it is impossible for the mind to evolve beyond a certain level of comprehension.  If you look upon the events of your life as fate, chance, good fortune, the luck of the draw, an accident or the Will of God, then there simply is no way to understand the events of the life you are living.  Further, unless you understand the Natural Law of Wholeness, and why each person sees and interprets the realities of life from a different and often conflicting perspective as explored at The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#SegmentedMind , then you will not understand why these many differences are the very means by which each person is able to overcome their own limitations, and escape what is allegorically portrayed in the Tower of Babel Syndrome.  And without understanding these Natural Laws, it will remain virtually impossible for you to evolve beyond the Natural Organic Human Limitations of Mind which the biblical authors portray as lower "animal-consciousness" (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ) -- incapable of comprehending man's higher Soul and Spiritual Natures.  
Thus, because the mind of natural man lacks the necessary understanding to develop beyond an organic human level, there is no basis for the use of true Reason and Intellect in a world-view paradigm where everything is the result of chance.  And in such a world-view paradigm it is virtually impossible to understand the true reality and purpose of the life that mankind is presently living.  In contradistinction, if you are cognizant of the reality that every event is driven by the Laws of Creation -- and the event has a Causal-Factor that is initiated by a previous action -- then if you understand the workings, purpose and objectives of the Laws, then you are able to begin to exercise control over the life mankind is living.  And if you understand that the man Jesus arose to the absolute level of human achievement by fulfilling the Law within his own mind and being -- and that each person has this same potential -- then the knowledge and understanding of the Natural Laws of Creation is essential and paramount in the life of anyone who desires to achieve their Ultimate Destiny.   And where the Theist who believes that their life is the result of accidents and chance encounters, and salvation is a gift regardless of their actions, simply has no means to understand the true reality of the life they are living.  On the other hand, if a person understands that the Laws of Creation respond to their every word and action -- and they begin to observe the Natural Laws working in their life -- such a person can very quickly begin to advance and achieve what is virtually impossible for the person who remains ignorant of the Natural Laws.     
Organic Man only utilizes a fraction of his true mental resources.  And the higher spheres and centers of man's mind and consciousness can only become active and usably manifest, when they are properly stimulated and developed.  Different centers of mind are vivified and activated by different stimulations.  So long as the paradigm of one's thinking remains founded upon the thinking that one's life is being orchestrated by accidental and chance encounters, then it will remain impossible for the higher spheres and centers of the mind to become active.  On the other hand, if one begins to achieve a connected wholeness in their thinking and observations of life -- understanding that every event has a past initiating factor that is intended to bring about future change and results, then one's present actions begins to embody dimensions of reality that provides the person the ability to make change and take control of their life.    
In a simplified example: The ability to do Math or Language are drawn from different areas of the mind.  Moreover, those areas of mind must be nurtured, evolved and matured, in order to become competent in these areas of human expression.  Music and the arts draws upon still different areas of the mind -- and these areas must be evolved and matured one level at a time.  The same is also true with respect to developing those centers and spheres of mind that are able to comprehend man's higher Soul-Reality.   Someone who dwells in a foundational paradigm of thinking where events are the result of accident and chance encounters, cannot develop those areas of mind that are cognizant of man's higher reality.  Because they lack the mental connection that past words and/or actions have orchestrated present events that are designed to bring about future results and experiences, no intellectual development can take place.  It isn't until the person understands that previous actions in conjunction with the Laws of Creation have initiated the present events that are intended to bring about a future development, that the higher areas of mind can be stimulated to evolve and mature. 
What must be added into the equation of self-development is the knowledge that each of us is an expression of our True or Soul-Self that dwells in a twelve-dimensional higher reality that we are a three-dimensional expression of.   Why can't our True-Self manifest in our physical body?  Because a twelve-dimensional Being cannot manifest in a three-dimensional realm -- and must therefore generate an embryo of Self that has the capacity and ability to develop to Wholeness and Fullness.  And that we can only break down the wall of separation between the three-dimensional person we are in this world, with our twelve-dimensional True-Self, when we embrace the process of mental expansion and deepening that enables us to fully connect with our True-Self (see Achieving Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ).  If the higher centers and spheres of mind are never stimulated and developed -- and we remain ignorant of the Natural Laws that initiate Causal Factors into the Present that are intended to bring about a future Result -- and we are never exposed to the higher reality that we are a three-dimensional being that is the expression of our higher twelve-dimensional Self -- then we will remain mentally and spiritually flat-lined.         
On the Pandeism page of the Wikipedia it states of Giordano Bruno: "Italian theologian Giordano Bruno was charged with heresy and burned at the stake for propounding what has been deemed by some commentators to be a pandeistic ideology." What made Giordano Bruno an Enlightened Deist? His intimate knowledge of the Natural Laws that are personified in the words, the Laws of Nature and Nature's God. Bruno understood what modern physicists are only now confirming with respect to the shadow-images of Plato's Cave and the necessity of developing the Intuitive spheres of mind to develop the ability of Anamnesis -- i.e., The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#Innate -- when he stated that "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge."  Openly acknowledging that the vast majority of mankind totally ignores this inner Source of Superior Knowledge when he stated: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it" And it is easily demonstrated that the Church corrupted the Gospels in order to suppress the teachings on how the Inner Light of Knowledge must be the seekers ONLY TEACHER (see The True Prophet http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TrueProphet ). What the Deist portrays as this Source of Inner Knowledge, is always suppressed by Revealed Religion and priest-craft, because those who develop the ability to tap into and learn from the Inner Light, do not need a faux-teacher of this world -- wherefore, they have no use of traditional religion.

In order to understand the Natural Laws and the Causal Factors of Life, it is absolutely necessary to understand what Giordano Bruno stated with respect to the Soul of mankind in the statement of fact:
"The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body". And in order to understand the Clock-Maker Universe, the person must understand the words of Bruno when he stated that "The divine perfection of the individual soul is the aim of all progression". And that this individual soul-progression is accomplished by the Natural Laws as personified in the words of Bruno when he stated that "Every act performed [by man] brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body." Which affirms the statement of the Church Father Origen when he stated that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis). Which means that the Causal Factors of the conditions we entered into this life, as well as all that we experience in life, has all been orchestrated by our own Soul's actions in the previous lives our Soul has lived. God does therefore not intervene in the affairs of man, because the Natural Laws that God put into effect is in control of each person's development -- and that each person can change their condition in life, by embracing the Natural Laws and fulfilling them in their daily life.

At a certain point in our development we begin to understand that God is not an old man with a beard -- and even our own Higher Soul-Self that is a Being of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ), is a Being of Pure Intellect, Intelligence and a Godly Expression of Love. And in order to understand why the Deists sought the Knowledge of the Natural Laws of Creation, it is important to begin to understand man's true relationship to God.  Quoting from: The Soul - Thomas Paine's Rights Of Man And Emerson's Oversoul http://SoulSelf.org#RightsOfMan : While Emerson is known as the father of Transcendentalism, he is also known as a Deist -- but by definition, it has been noted that Pythagoras, Plato and Jesus can also be defined as a Deist. But of ultra interest is the statement in the book on Emerson where it is written:
"Emerson gives his argument a special twist at this point since his first sentence also alludes to Paine's Rights of Man. Arguing for the rights of men over the rights of institutions and government, he recalls Paine's claims for the sacred rights of the individual. Like Emerson, Paine's 'motive and subject -- as he describes it in a letter of 1806 to John Inskeep, the mayor of Philadelphia -- had always been 'to rescue man from the tyranny and false systems and false principles of government, and enable him to be free.'" (see Nature's Archives - p. 114). While it is noted that this exposé portrays Emerson's thesis on the Oversoul as perhaps his most important work, it is also noted that very little useable information is provided to the reader. And because of the great importance of this higher reality, this present work is intended to fill in the great void with respect to the higher reality of the soul of man that few religions or philosophies today have any real understanding of.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, like many of the early American Gnostics, was a Deist. Quoting the Wikipedia:
"The Oversoul is an essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson, first published in 1841. The broad subject of the essay, considered one of Emerson's best, is the human soul. Several general themes are treated: (1) the existence and nature of the human soul; (2) the relationship between the soul and the personal ego; (3) the relationship of one human soul to another; and (4) the relationship of the human soul to God. Influence of Eastern religions, including Vedantism, is plainly evident, but the essay also develops ideas long present in the Western tradition, e.g., in the works of Plato, Plotinus, and Emmanuel Swedenborg. The essay attempts no systematic doctrine, but rather serves as a work of art, something like poetry. Its virtue is in personal insights of the author and the lofty manner of their presentation. Emerson wishes to exhort and direct the reader to an awakening of similar thoughts or sentiments. With respect to the four themes listed above, the essay presents the following views: (1) the human soul is immortal, and immensely vast and beautiful; (2) our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self; (3) at some level, the souls of all people are connected, though the precise manner and degree of this connection is not spelled out; and (4) the essay does not seem to explicitly contradict the traditional Western idea that the soul is created by and has an existence that is similar to God, or rather God exists within us. This idea was later adopted by many religions."

Take notice of the above statement:
"...at some level, the souls of all people are connected, though the precise manner and degree of this connection is not spelled out" -- and when the Cosmology of Mind is understood, it is seen that what Emerson was missing was an understanding of the Matrix of the Soul (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image http://SoulSelf.org#EmbryonicSoulImage ) -- and holographically, this same Matrix of the Soul also exists on a higher level within the Matrix of the Logos (Mind of God ). Other quotes by Emerson on the soul of man is seen in the words: "The soul comes from without into the human body, as into a temporary abode, and it goes out of it anew it passes into other habitations, for the soul is immortal." And again: "It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals… and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some strange new disguise." —Ralph Waldo Emerson.
In the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image ), man is portrayed as a projected image of the soul -- and in the same way that all the previous images of the soul-self that lived in all the lifetimes that the soul has lived are all dwelling within the Matrix of the Soul, all the souls who are portrayed as the Soul-Self and the True Being that each of us is, all dwell within the Matrix of the Logos (Mind of God). Holographically, in the same way that the soul is the sum total of all the lifetimes that it has lived, the Logos (Mind of God) is the sum total of all the experiences of all the souls that came into existence since the beginning of Creation -- and thus, all of Creation is evolving and moving from the Alpha of ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light.  But to begin to understand why Deism places such high emphasis on understanding the Laws of Nature, you must understand your own relationship as a three-dimensional soul-generated image, to your twelve-dimensional Soul-Self, and your Soul-Self's relationship to God. 
Not until we understand that mankind is presently dwelling in a realm of Duality -- where opposite polarities of the same consciousness can and must interact with each other in order to evolve to Wholeness -- then it must be understood that when an action is initiated, a corresponding action is initiated in the opposite polarity.   In the same way that the contraction of the two atna chambers of the heart initiate the contraction in the ventricles, in this divided reality every action initiates a reactive-action in its opposite polarity.  Which means that every word, and every action you make, initiates an opposite polarity action that MUST BE BALANCED IN THE CENTER OF THE TREE OF LIFE.  When balance and wholeness is achieved, then growth and development is brought about.  When the active and reflective opposites cannot be balanced, then the action becomes externalized -- which in the parable of the prodigal son, is portrayed as the squandering away of the inheritance on "riotous living".   But because the loss or externalization is imprinted with what can be portrayed as the imprint of our Spiritual DNA, it must return back to us -- and this process can and does continue until Wholeness and Completion is achieved. 
We cannot even begin to envision the above process without first understanding the connection that exists between all of mankind and all of Creation.  An important overlooked and not understood Bible passage states in reference to the Higher Reality of God that mankind is blind to: “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28 NIV).  If we indeed "...live and move and have our being" within God, then what is our true relationship to God?  When we put the foregoing together with the statement by James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine” Or the words of Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.  What is portrayed is a higher reality that few people are even prepared to contemplate -- much less, understand with sufficient degree to even form a realistic opinion.

An Enlightened person who understands the Natural Laws of Creation, understands that God is not a being who is separate from man -- but is the very Consciousness within which we move and have out being.  Perhaps one of the best teachings (which was removed from the canonical Gospels by the Church, has been preserved in the outlawed Gospel of the Nazirenes, and is known as the parable of the fishes (quoting): "And there were certain men, of doubtful mind, who came to Jesus, and said to him, You tell us that our life and being comes from God, but we have never seen God, nor do we know of any God. Can you show us whom you call the Father-Mother, one God? We don't know if there is a God. Jesus answered them, saying, Hear this parable of the fishes. The fishes of a certain river communed with one another, saying, they tell us that our life and being is from water, but we have never seen water, we don't know what it is. Then some among them, wiser than the rest, said, We have heard there dwells in the sea a wise and learned fish, who knows all things. Let us journey to him, and ask him to show us what water is. So several of them set out to find this great and wise fish, and they came at last to the sea where in the wise fish dwelt, and they asked of him. And when he heard them he said to them, O you foolish fish that don't contemplate! The few of you who seek, are wise. You live, and move, and have your being in the water; from the water you came, to the water you return. You live in the water, yet you don't know it.' In a similar manner, you live in God, and yet you ask of me, 'Show us God.' God is in all things, and all things are in God." 
If mankind dwells within the Mind of God, then what inhibits him from Knowing all that God Knows?  The answer is the Natural Laws that place a barrier between us and our Source -- i.e., our Higher Soul-Self -- and the Source of our Soul which is the Logos (Mind of God).  Enlightened Deists who understand the Natural Laws, are able to tap into the Higher Mind of both the Soul and the Logos, by fulfilling and prevailing over the limitations of the Natural Laws that divide and separate us -- which limitations can only be overcome by achieving Wholeness (see Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ).  With respect to achieving Wholeness, Jesus portrayed himself as a physician when he stated: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).   Which means that Jesus himself acknowledged that others achieved Wholeness without his assistance as a physician, and that anyone who achieves Wholeness can open up a conduit between themselves and the Indwelling Logos, and accomplish all that the historical man Jesus accomplished.   But it will remain virtually impossible to bring about this Wholeness, without understanding the Natural Laws of Creation. 
When PanDeist Giordano Bruno stated that "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge", he was making reference to the source of Higher Knowledge of both his Soul-Self and the Indwelling Logos.  When Bruno stated "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it", what he was stating was that organic man is so mesmerized by the outward illusions that modern science has recognized as the illusions of Plato's Cave (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ), that their mental and spiritual development becomes flat-lined.   And that only those who understand the Natural Laws are able to achieve the necessary Wholeness that enables them to utilize the process of Anamnesis - enabling then to begin to tap into the inner source of Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#Innate .   That those who are able to prevail over the Laws, and achieve Wholeness, are able to learn directly from the Indwelling Logos as they become Enlightened by an Anointed (Messiah/Christ) of the Mind.  As stated: "The anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you don't need anyone to teach you. Instead, His anointing teaches you about all things and is true and is not a lie; just as He has taught you, remain in Him" (1  John 2:27).  The Deists who had overcome the Natural Laws that require Wholeness to prevail over organic human limitations, did not need either an academic teacher or a savior promoted by Revealed Religion, because as a person overcomes the Natural Laws and begins to tap into the what Giordano Bruno portrayed as the Divine Light within the mind of all of mankind, the Anointing of the Inner Light of Higher Consciousness taught and revealed to them the Truth of all things.   And from the Divine Light they learned the functioning of the Natural Laws as manifest in the Clock-Maker Universe -- the reality of the evolving Soul over the course of many lifetimes a stated by Bruno: "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body" -- and the purpose of the Natural Laws as manifest in the Clock-Maker Universe was, in the words of Bruno, "The divine perfection of the individual soul is the aim of all progression".   And the Universe as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism, in the words of Bruno evolves the Soul by returning to each Soul the fruit of their own words and action -- "Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body."  
Why didn't the Enlightened Deists such as Thomas Paine and Jefferson openly talk about their personal knowledge of their Soul's previous lives?   If they did, they would have been rejected by the vast majority of Christians in their endeavor to create a government that would usher in the necessary personal freedoms and God-Given Right to bring about a condition of Enlightenment and Exceptionalism (see The Deists And American Exceptionalism http://ThomasPaineRedux.com#AmericanExceptionalism ).  And it was this foundational Constitutional Government that was necessary to restore the Original Gospel Teachings ( http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ), that would enable mankind to overcome the limits of the Natural Laws and the constraints of organic human consciousness.  Thus, Thomas Paine, Jefferson and others were given important glimpses into their Soul's previous lives, and an understanding of the Rights of Man as the divine offspring to Creator-God.
