Xanderism -
Anyone heard of these guys? It's like a cult forming in Irving, TX.

They have some pretty interesting sci-fi ideas.

They believe in

1. That there are many possible futures and pasts, and that we each come from a different past. And that we only partially share the present and that any church is a group of people trying to "build a bridge" to a specific future.

They have a lot of gobbeldy gook about time and space and tony Robbins type goal-setting.

2. They believe that every moment and thing in the universe is unique, because everything is "connected." Therefore the only way two things can be exactly the same is if they are in the exact same spot... therefore they would be one thing.

3. That animism is the natural way of the universe. Where everything is sort of conscious and has a spirit. But that the soul is an "artificial" creation, by more advanced civilizations and creatures. They are able to travel through alternate realities and what we would call "time." And these more intelligent entities "save" the spirit of a human when he dies, for all the same reasons that we do it on Earth. Bad spirits want a human soul for the knowledge it contains, or to use as a bargaining chip. While good spirits are actually our friends and loved ones from future and past timelines, trying to carry save us.

4. Xanderans are Polytheistic. As animists, Xanderans consider all of the members of their society, and their environment, from the beginning of time, to be the body of their "God." So while it is spiritual to a three dimensional being, it is a really big physical four dimensional creature.

5. The goal of Xanderans is to reach their heaven and maintain it. And Xanderans are luddites. They believe in technology, but are directly opposed to transhumanism. That is why they are called Xanderans... "Alexander" means "defender of man." Xanderans see the transhumanists as their biggest threat.

6. Xanderans believe that while their time travelling descendants can look back in time, and save a persons soul, they cannot directly intervene because it would mess up their present- like a paradox. And that the only reason Xanderans even know about this is that alternate "timelines" have already fucked up the timeline, and that we are in the middle of an epic battle of the timelines right now. They call it a Nexus. And that's why everyone is so confused.

7. Xanderans believe that anything you can imagine happens somewhere, in some reality. As such all religions are true... somewhere. And Xanderans foresee a heaven where all of the major religions of Earth have joined together under "Xanderism." And so to convert to Xanderism, you don't have to feel like you believed in a lie your entire life, but more like you were swept away from the timeline you were in to this battleground and you can CHOOSE where to go from here.

8. Xanderans believe in Better. Not Perfection. So their heaven is much better than our present reality, but you will still have to work there and defend it against all enemies. And they say there will be new perils and obstacles eternally. So their heaven is more like... the present.

They keep talking about how if you cook here, then you will cook in the future. Or if you play sports here, then you will play sports in the future heaven. So... the skills you possess in life and when you die don't go to waste. Its like a big thing they keep stressing.

9. Xanderans believe in failure. So if they don't win... then they won't make it to their preferred heaven - future. So they believe that what they do really matters. They stress personal responsibility and the union of the physical and spiritual realms. They say this is in contrast to Christian and Jewish and Muslim religions which say that this physical life and what happens here won't matter. So polluting the environment, etc. doesn't matter to a Christian. But to a Xanderan, you are polluting your heaven.

10. Xanderans believe in humans. They stress that its important to realize that your soul is in the hands of other HUMANS. So having a strong community and ties to one another is of utmost importance. And that fostering these emotional aspects of humanity are important. Otherwise when you die you will be resurrected in a future where people are cold and calculating and will obviously have a bad intention for you, rather than embracing you with love and helping you.


Anyways I could go on, but it sounds tempting and not so tempting. I mean if its true, then... their heaven sounds cool. I can travel through time and alternate realities. Go to Middle Earth and stuff. But also... I could end up in Hell or turn into an Earthworm. Which sucks. The all knowing, all powerful Christian God, who is going to save me seems a lot more comforting.

What do you guys think about this?
