I didn’t have any dealings with Ahura Mazda (obviously) but I do believe Ahriman is the force within us which got blocked and even locked due to centuries, possibly even millenia, of limitation - I believe as a rough outline that there was some society that pre-dated the Egyptians, going back longer than 40000bce in other words.
I think that civilisation had the ability to endless ascent while manifest in the flesh, perhaps with things ate a slightly higher harmonic, perhaps on another planet, or even (I have an open mind on this) with the Earth itself in a different location.
And that something came along and fucked that up, cast us back into some lowered state, and then attempted to crush the last lingering spark of godlike power. It’s possible we weren’t “human” as such at that time, I don’t know, I’m trying to look at what I’ve seen and not make up too much narrative to try and string together the details.
The “troll god” entity, when I saw its true form, was like encrustations of things humans had created - it could only exist within what it parasitised, or what people feared.
Whether this constitutes the Ahuras Mazda Kurtis is talking about, I don’t know. Rules are not automatically limitation though, for example the rulesa that keep your cellular division limited are what stop you dying of cancer, the rules that say “stop eating, you’ve had enough” are what stop you being a 500lbs person welded to a sofa, etc.
So we may be looking at slightly different things here.
Humans have natural and innate psychic abilities, we see that with kids, it’s like a rule of nature, and we see similar things, even allowing for massive cultural and racial differences; core shamanism is the fruit of this because Harner discovered that all cultures have a broaly similar structure when they travel in spirit worlds, even though many aspects are linked to local environment.
Not all limitations or natural rules are bad - not all breaking of rules is great, or likely to lead to wisdom or more life. Both, taken to excess, are destructive of human potential and happiness.
