Thomas Cotterill

French writer and feminist intellectual Simone de Beauvoir was Jean Paul Sartre’s long-time lover and companion. She did not consider herself a philosopher, but nevertheless advanced some challenging ideas. One of these was her concept of the “useless passion,” the desire to be God. De Beauvoir posited two sides to this passion: violence and merging. Violence, the attempt to wound or destroy others is a bid for omnipotence. Merging with the world or cosmos, what we might call the “all-is-one” philosophy is a bid for omnipresence and omniscience. At the philosophical level, the useless passion stems from the truth of human existence; that is, that we are finite and that we will die. The useless passion is our desire to escape from our finiteness. It is important to realize that those who espouse violence and the all-is-one philosophy may be unaware of their true motives…

      I have to admit that I have never been a fan of the Apostle Paul. However, this article opened my eyes to the true reality of Paul’s personality. This interpretation places Paul in the archetype I call “The Templar.” I use Joseph of Arimathea as the progenitor of this archetype in my upcoming book. This archetype is the pentacle of masculine spiritual development and similar to “The Master” in the triad of “Apprentice,” “Journeyman,” and “Master.”

      In short, The Templar is one who has followed the law throughout his life and has become a respected elder in the community. Then one day something happens. Whether he sees an innocent man crucified or is struck on the road to Damascus, he now sees the error of his ways and repents. He then moves to correct his mistake through action in the world by giving up his freshly made tomb or goes and preaches what he has learned to the multitudes.

      In this context, much of what Paul preaches now makes sense.
