What is a Pun? By Andre Austin, the author of Lukewarm: the temperature of Justice available on amazon.com According to “the [Pun] usually humorous use of a word in such a way as to suggest two or more of its meanings or the meaning of another word similar in sound” (merriam-webster.com) The words Luke & Look are phonetically/homophonically sounding alike and I see as linked together especially as a clue to a pun. Its no accident that the 2nd century Christians caught on to this and wrote Letters to the Lukewarm church in the name of Paul saying they were doing good deeds and keep “Looking” for the judgement. So being Lukewarm and not Hot or Cold just meant what the Stoic writer said was the condition of good eyesight. What did the Stoic historian Pliny the Elder mean when he said “Nature has provided the eye with many thin membranes and hard outside coverings as a protection against cold and heat she cleans the eyes with moisture....” (Natural History Book 11:147). How do these two Bible quotes below relate to Pliny and the 3rd chapter of Revelations? “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Matthew 5:8) “Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God”. (3 John verse 12) All of these questions will be answered to explain how Lukewarm is based on an Egyptian goddess. Lukewarm is the Temperature of justice which you can read all about in my new book. In the Egyptian court of justice a soul declares that he didn’t have a Temper and eat and swallow his own heart. This is why lukewarm is spit out. Therefore you can’t have a hot-heart or Cold-heart to have the physical/spiritual protection of eyes from the Hot & Cold. Satan comes from the desert and is opposed to moisture. Recall the movie The Wizard of Oz where a green witch dies by having water spilled on it. Plutarch, in his essay Isis & Osiris p.83: “Egypt, moreover, which has the blackest of soils, they call by the same name as the black portion of the eye, ‘Chemia (Ham), and compare it to a heart,; for it is warm and moist,… like the heart in a man’s left side”. The Stoic Zeno taught the breath of the soul is warm (Lives of Eminent Philosophers Volume 2 p.261 By Diogenes Laertius). This is the condition of “Lukewarm” in which you had to be in front of the court of judgement in Egypt. For this reason of Racism that led to the attack of Ham’s eye’s as “homosexual” and the Criminal Justice System (Tree of right & wrong), would open your eyes (Genesis 3:1-7). This is why Plutarch wrote that Satan by nature is “opposed to moisture (Justice)” p.97. A second century, born in Africa, Christian, Minucius Felix said: “The Stoics firmly maintain that when the moisture is dried out, the universe must all take fire” (Octavius 34:2).
