Shocking Info. On "evil"

Dr. Dick's comments on "evil" are curious.

Here is a strangely "scientific" perspective:

As a newborn infant, I sensed "evil", a "physical evil presence". Very shocking stuff; yet I can deduce that the "presence" would have been associated with an adult human (who, as adult humans tend to be, no doubt appeared like a "living corpse"- i.e. lacking the hyper-space aliveness present in the infant).

Probably it may have been associated with the human about to carry out some terrible act, some gross violation of the laws of nature, as humans tend to do because of their ignorance and mythologies.

Possibly such a "physical evil presence" was detected prior to the medical mutilation of circumcision; a procedure nowadays consigned more and more to the dustbin of medical mumbojumbo.

The point is this: a newborn infant may detect a physical threat to himself, by a creature in a state of ignorance and not in synch. with the Cosmos, as something involving a physical evil presence.

Wheteher I like it or not, this backs up Dr. Dick's contention of a relationship between "evil" and "stupidity". Medicine today now regards some procedures once carried out routinely; as "stupid".

However, why the stupidity?

The theological view of evil comes in here: denial and evasion of existent truth. But it's like you can not judge- evil seems to be something that vapourises the moment you shine a light on it.
