I agree with Albert Einstein if I was to choose a religion to follow, I would choose Buddhism, which in origin was really a philosophy, not a religion. It evolved into a religion, because human kind without science, is obsessed with the need to revere something, rather than just accept things as they are, in a calm sense of wonder and peaceful appreciation. Sense of awe in mystery, without understanding, is beautiful and peaceful, unto those persons that simply accept the essence of what it is, for its own reality.
Since I have refused to follow fixed dogma of any ‘Belief System’… I chose to simply live my life as a ‘Cosmic Philosopher’ with open mind, always exploring ideas, being careful not to get trapped inside a box of fixed ideas. Being dynamic is to me, living the challenge that makes life an exciting adventure.

“We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.”
And thus instinctively ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ was identified and coined by Allan Peter Ivarsson in 2007 from the evolution of ‘Cosmicism’ which he started writing in 1984.
Notice Einstein used the word ‘New’…in other words, he rejected every existing ‘Belief System’ except ‘Buddhism’.
Einstein a proud Jew, did not believe in any of the three Abrahamic Religions.
More Philosophical Intelligence Quotes by Albert Einstein…
“I do not believe in immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it.”
“I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.”
“If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.”
“If there is any religion that could respond to the needs of modern science, it would be Buddhism.”
“Three great forces rule the world: stupidity, fear and greed.”
“Everything that is really great, and inspiring is created by the individual who can labour in freedom.”
“I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene…. No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus.”
“It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me, which can be called religious, then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world, so far as our science can reveal it.”
“I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil. My God created laws that take care of that. His universe is not ruled by wishful thinking, but by immutable laws.”
“The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense, are the constitutional rights secure.”
“The religion of the future will be cosmic religion. It will transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description.”
“For anyone who is pervaded with the sense of causal law in all that happens, who accepts in real earnest the assumption of causality, the idea of a Being who interferes with the sequence of events in the world is absolutely impossible. Neither the religion of fear nor the social-moral religion can have any hold on him.”
End of Albert Einstein Quotes
Years later ‘Cosmicism’ evolved as defined by me, Allan Ivarsson between 1984 and 2014, under the guidance of ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ a ‘perception, comprehension, mental capacity’ of words coined by A.I. in 2007 to identify a level of unnamed intelligence, which he discovered has existed throughout man’s history; a talent, a vision of understanding held until now by the rare few. But that shall change for the many shall learn the way of P.I.
I did not discover these quotations of philosophy by Albert Einstein until February 2014; I was surprised when he talked about the future of a ‘Cosmic Religion’ something which I conceived, not as a religion, through my spiritual mentor’s guidance in 1984, through the window of ‘Philosophy’, which at first I called ‘Metteyyism’ and years later decided it was too archaic a title, and hence, renamed it in synonym to fit the writing subject I was recording, and thus the word ‘Cosmicism’ was coined in 2007. It is not my vision as guided by my mentor, to call ‘Cosmicism’ a religion; it is simply, words which I coined in 1988, a ‘Cosmic Philosophy’.
Like Einstein my first choice of religions is ‘Buddhism’, but unlike the rest of the World, I stand alone at this point of time, rejecting the definition that ‘Buddhism’ is a religion and instead I define ‘Buddhism’ simply as a ‘Belief System’ –a Philosophy that does not worship God and does with great respect for the man, Gautama Buddha, follow his wisdom and guidance as the way good human life should live.
To understand my ‘God’ thou must be able to comprehend the following recap…
“God is not the Creator. Unlearn such misconception. God is of the Creation. Understand this difference, and you shall begin to elevate your insight past your current perception.” #

As tabled earlier… Einstein said…
“I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil. My God created laws that take care of that. His universe is not ruled by wishful thinking but by immutable laws.”
Those immutable laws are what I, A.I. coined by name in 1981, in the story ‘Red Light’ as being… ‘Cosmic Laws’
Gaia Dictionary: The words ‘Ancient Law’ and ‘Cosmic Law’ and ‘Immutable Law’ and ‘Causal Law’ and ‘Eternal Law’ are synonymous in meaning.
I wrote ‘Blue Light Cosmic Philosophy’ for myself, for my personal guidance, not for money, even though financial advantage is a nice bonus. It has cost me forty-four years plus of hard work and even suffering on my ‘Quest for Truth’ since 1970-71 and in financial returns, I shall never live long enough, to recover the financial losses, because of this quest.
I am at this point of my time of life at 68 years of age, nearing 69, simply sharing with others what I learned and experienced. I am not interested in trying to convert any person to my ‘Belief System’ –you either believe or you don’t.
But, I do know one thing for certain that if mankind as a majority does not learn ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ beyond a shadow of doubt, inevitably the human species shall become extinct. It is not a question of probability, it is a question of when. Only global majority population P.I. can reverse this prophesy.
