Taboo against ecstasy/transcendence was established at the very beginning of Pauline churchianity

Christianity is not and never has been about transcendence or ecstasy. It was and is about social control, about being a "good" meat-body personality, and if you are "good", getting your "transcendent" reward in the next life. No present time ecstasy (stepping outside of your socially constructed "self" allowed)

Alan Watts wrote a book titled The Taboo Against Knowing What You Are. The Taboo against ecstasy/transcendence was established at the very beginning of Pauline churchianity. Our current thoroughly secularised "culture" is the inevitable outcome of that power and control seeking meme. When did any of the dreadfully serious buttoned down scholars at Immanent Frame ever go into a state of ragged unbounded state ecstasy?
