Hi, Paul
Quoting me, and responding, you wrote:
"***I still see a germ of transcendent information in the story of Jesus of Nazareth***

So do I. I also see a germ of inspired transcendent information in "The Wizard of Oz", "Alice in Wonderland", "Flatland", Bach's and Beethoven's compositions, and many many more works conventionally attributed to mere humans."

Difference: one is archetypal of the suffering of intelligence to survive and improve, while being misunderstood, undermined and abused.

This archetype is a kind of literature which I think is generic sociology...its meaning could be of interest to other intelligent life forms elsewhere. Whereever intelligences have conflicted, this situational structure might be represented by a similar one. To the end of time, it seems to me, this phenomenon may be take for granted but has its time of emerging:
being the breakthrough, against odds, of individual conscience in order to benefit others as well as one's self.

Something like that.
