  1. A couple of points:

    1) I’m not getting my own planet, I’m having my own universe. Each us will get to create their own big bang in this megaverse of multiple dimensions. We are short changed with the notion of just planets or worlds. Come on!! But first you need to manage your own microcosm of a world (named household) before you can ever think of managing anything larger than that. 1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?).

    2) Temple ordinance has now change, we no longer place the robe on the left shoulder in preparation to receive the Melchizedek priesthood. We go straight to the right shoulder now that saves a considerable amount of time. You would know this, but it seems you don’t go to the temple anymore. (Sadly). Apparently the temple videos haven’t been updated because we now use still pictures instead, and the voice play seems to be at 1.15 times the normal speed to help speed up the whole experience and save about 20 minutes from what the original temple session was taking.

    Everything else, spot on as usual. Thank you.

    • Dear Dave,

      Thanks for the corrections. Let me suggest a couple of things:

      1. You don’t get to go direct from planets to universes, mi amigo! You have to try your stuff out on one planet first, and only through learning the ropes do you move up from one planet to a galaxy and then eventually to a universe. Please don’t put the cart before the horse. Or the universe before the planet. ;^)

      2. You are right about the robing in the endowment. I was going off an earlier version of the endowment before it was changed, as you point out. But since the Melchizedek Priesthood subsumes the Aaronic Priesthood, I guess I am still on safe ground.

      That said, the endowment being played faster to make it less boring is something a number of my listeners have tried out with my podcast; reportedly with great success!

      Thanks as always for your comments!

  2. Great analysis of so many good points we were or still are so oblivious to. Keep waking us up. I was kinda hoping you would have a closing hymn by George Michael, “Wake me up before Covid-Cult go-goooooes.” Yeah, I didn’t escape Alcatraz just to turn myself in at San Quentin. Same dogma crap, same dogma disguises, tactics and gaslighting, different gift wrap. Ooooo, pretttty! I want!
