The faux religion of Steve Jobs

Opinion by Brett Robinson, Special to CNN

(CNN)— Forget the forbidden fruit logo and the cult of Apple jokes. The legacy of Steve Jobs is anything but religious.

Apple was conceived in the heady days of the counterculture movement. While Jobs and friend Steve Wozniak were busy hacking into AT&T’s long-distance phone lines from a Berkeley dorm room in the 1970s, the culture was awash in New Age experimentation and social unrest. Traditional institutions were under siege by idealistic youth rejecting what they viewed as mass-marketed delusions.

At the top of the hit list was organized religion. When Jobs and Wozniak got the phone hacking device to work, their first call was to the Vatican. They proceeded to hang up on the pope’s personal secretary before he could connect the call to the Holy Father. Jobs the iconoclast relished the prank.

Apple’s Garden of Eden logo is one of several religious parodies aimed at the establishment. A 2007 iPhone ad with the tagline “Touching is Believing” mocks the Biblical story of the Apostle Thomas, who needed to touch the wounds of Christ in order to believe in the Resurrection. Apparently, the iPhone apostles needed the same reassurance leading up to the launch of what came to be called the “Jesus phone.”

Jobs left the Protestant church as a young man and sought spiritual enlightenment in the East. At a pivotal moment in his career, Jobs’ moral compass led him to a Zen monastery in northern California, where he considered becoming a Buddhist monk rather than continuing with Apple. But his close friend and Zen priest Kobun Chino Otogawa told him he could do both.

Jobs embraced the challenge by combining the physics of computing with the metaphysics of Eastern spirituality. The minimalism and intuitive design of Apple products are material expressions of Jobs’ Zen ideals. When Edwin Land, the founder of Polaroid, told Jobs to remain at the intersection of technology and the humanities, Jobs knew he had landed at the nexus of a powerful cultural movement.

When a statue of Steve Jobs was erected in Budapest in 2011, it was one of many tributes to the demiurge of digital culture. But to truly immortalize a media technology hero like Jobs, a movie would need to be made.

The din of digital media has eclipsed the dignity of statues, and the screen has become a sacred means for commemorating cultural heroes. Lincoln, Gandhi and Christ have all had their day in the Hollywood sun.

It is fitting that the new movie about his life, "Jobs," edited on Apple computers and eventually distributed to millions of Apple devices, will proclaim the technological gospel fashioned by its creator.

The medium is the message after all.

But baked into Apple products is a troubling paradox. Like a technological Trojan horse, Apple products assail our senses with sumptuous visuals and rich acoustics while unleashing a bevy of addictive and narcissistic habits. The ‘i’ prefix on Apple devices is a constant reminder that personal technology is ultimately all about us.

In addition to his Zen Buddhist leanings, Jobs claimed that trying LSD was one of the most formative experiences of his life. One occasion sounds like a treatment for an iPod ad. After dropping acid, Jobs found himself in a wheat field and felt as though the crops were pulsating to a Bach symphony. It was a sublime experience for the young seeker who saw drugs as a gateway to expanding consciousness and thinking differently – a theme he would return to years later in Apple’s iconic “Think Different” campaign.

Altered perception has become a hallmark of personal technology. The “Music Every Day” ad for the iPhone 5 is a series of visual snippets of Apple users enjoying their music. The study hall, the dance hall and the city are all transformed by the presence of the musical device. Freed from the humdrum of everyday life by their personal soundtrack, many of the actors appear stoned as they enjoy the heightened pleasure of being plugged in.

The Apple religion is not a religion at all, but a celebration of the self through personalized pleasure.

Reflecting on religion later in life, Jobs told biographer Walter Isaacson that different religions were all just doors to the same house, “sometimes I think the house exists, and sometimes I don’t.”

If Jobs had actually spoken to the pope from that Berkeley dorm room years ago, he may have heard something akin to what Pope Leo XIII said in 1885, a century before Macintosh:  “To hold…that there is no difference in matters of religion between forms that are unlike each other, and even contrary to each other, most clearly leads…to the rejection of all religion. ... And this is the same thing as atheism, however it may differ from it in name.”

Steve Jobs did some amazing things, but he was not a prophet. And Apple is not a religion. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

    observer "Yes Horus and Buddha came before Jesus. So did many, many other gods and myths. And yes, many parts of the story of Jesus bear striking resemblance to those stories that came before him. And some of the things attributed to Jesus sound an awful lot like the things Buddha is supposed to have said.
    ....so...what was your point?"

    fascinating, observer. again, what did buddha say that was attributed to jesus? no comment? then why keep repeating it if you don't know? who attributed buddha's words to jesus, any idea? and why? to correct the errors you think are in the old testament?

    according to you, them goat herders had no means, no education, and they were deluded, iron age nomads. so, who were the dudes following buddha 400 years earlier you appreciate so much, einstein and newton?

    not to worry. i promise you, now, in advance, athies CANNOT offer a serious response. they will not touch it.

      hharri-The point that was being made was that the sayings of Jesus can be attibuted to earlier sources, not that those sources were any more wise or holy. Nearly everything attributed to Jesus including his life story (born of a virgin, miracles, crucificion and ressurection) came from earlier mythologies. By the way if you are trying to claim the superiority of your own world view it carries more weight if you capitalize your sentences and use grammatical English. Just a tip from your friendly Athie (as you label it).

      • hharri

        The point is, quote those who Jesus is borrowing from, okay? Go right ahead athies. Give it all you got.
        Concepts such as the resurrection and crucifixion may have been around before Christ. No proof he used them. For Pete's sake.
        He did live them which is more than we can say for athies who are cowardly liars

    This column hints at a good insight, but aims poorly. The author is suffering under a resentment phobia and allows for no forgiveness. If he wants "i-selling", then just sample the commercials for one evening on cable. the i in iTunes etc. stands for internet. I do not find evil in Steve and his products, but for sure lots of mistaken paths. Who doesn't have those?

      The reference to "i" was one of the weirdest things in this piece. Who ever thought that the "i" had to do with self? That has never even entered my mind. A lot of companies do now have sites prefaced with "my" which I find annoying, but only because I think the marketing misses a little and comes off looking silly.

    Steve Jobs did some amazing things and we can all appreciate his work. His spiritual beliefs were an asset to him and there is no reason to denegrate him if they don't match with your own.

    August 25, 2013 at 11:45 am |
    • Sara

      He would have done better to leave Jobs religious beliefs out of the whole discussion if this is about Apple and worship the products or company, which never have spread religious ideology. Bringing it into the mix just makes you wonder about what weird religious agenda the author might have.

    "Yes Horus and Buddha came before Jesus. So did many, many other gods and myths. And yes, many parts of the story of Jesus bear striking resemblance to those stories that came before him. And some of the things attributed to Jesus sound an awful lot like the things Buddha is supposed to have said.
    ....so...what was your point?"

    from where did those things attributed to jesus come? what was attributed to him? that bore a striking similarity to buddha?

    to all sinners, she will never answer. no athie dare! cause if you do, you are going to realize that jesus is.

    not to worry. i promise you, now, in advance, they will not touch it.

      i am that good!

      now, those things are attributed to jesus. so, he must have lived and he must have spoken, if we pretend you had had the guts and the honesty to expound on your position. (it is cool for an athie to say christ was influenced by big bad buddha. they think it makes buddha look pretty important). ahh, but they make a whopper. unintentionally, they give away the store: christ must have lived to have said anything! and he said wonderful things -supposedly! (they couch everything carefully, terrified they will make a booboo and he will emerge despite their best efforts to deny him, as the son of god!)

      ahh matey, you slipped up. he lived and he said incredible things. no one could make up the things he said. "i and the father are one" "no one comes to the father but through me" "I, if i be lifted up, will draw all men to me" "he that believeth in me, out of his inner most being shall flow rivers of living water"

      father god, have pity on them, they are clueless. absolutely, completely brainwashed, deluded and helpless

    Actually, Steve Jobs is a Bible believer now. Everyone will be a Bible believer eventually. Better to figure it out now than later.

    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Hebrews 9:26-27

    Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7

        Obviously my subtle point was completely missed.

        Some day EVERY knee shall bow and EVERY tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. You and everyone else will be a Bible believer some day- it might not be until you stand before God Himself and try to explain why you rejected His Son that died for you.

        My point was that Steve Jobs is no longer living in the flesh, but his soul lives on and will eternally. He believes now, and so will you some day. Seek ye the Lord while He may be found!!

          Yes, I understand that you were most likely born into a family and/or society where Christianity is the accepted religion of the great majority of people, and has been so for over a thousand years (I too was born into this tradition). But what if you had been born into a Buddhist, Muslim or Hindu family? Or even into a "pagan" idol-worshipping society? Wouldn't you then tend to believe the faith of your family and relatives (whatever faith it happened to be)? Most people do. Yes, there are always exceptions, and if you are such an exception who has "gone against" the religion of his forefathers to choose Christianity, then I stand corrected. But the larger point remains.

      Yes, I logged in just to comment on this dribble. Enough with this religious nonsense. Here is my "prediction"... you neophobic religious types with your blind faith and addiction to dogma who still can't think very far beyond your own nose will continue to hold back the human race until we are 50 feet underwater then you will ask the advice of the humans who challenged themselves to think for themselves and were able to rise above your utter ignorance, If it's not too late by then. How does this "author" get to write an article for CNN. CNN are you kidding me?

      Actually, the bible contradicts itself into oblivion. Jesus contradicted himself and lied on top of it. You'd of course know this if you actually read the stupid thing.

      Christians are the most arrogant piles of human garbage to have ever existed.

      I'd rather burn in fire for eternity than spend an afterlife in the presence of such pompous, self-serving and greedy trash.

      I'm glad god does not exist, specifically the bipolar christian god. The god of racism, hate and death. Christians LOVE worshiping an imaginary being the gives them permission to take their hate out on everyone around them.

      The bible gave christians permission to torture and slaughter millions of people. Who aborts more babies than any other demographic? Christians. What demographic represents the largest prison population across the globe? Christians.

      Yeah, like I'm going to take lessons in morality from garbage responsible for the worst crimes in human history.

      North Korea's leadership are probably all secretly christian.

    • Reality

      (from Professor JD Crossan's book, "Who is Jesus" co-authored with Richard Watts)

      "Moreover, an atonement theology that says God sacrifices his own son in place of humans who needed to be punished for their sins might make some Christians love Jesus, but it is an obscene picture of God. It is almost heavenly child abuse, and may infect our imagination at more earthly levels as well. I do not want to express my faith through a theology that pictures God demanding blood sacrifices in order to be reconciled to us."

      "Traditionally, Christians have said, 'See how Christ's passion was foretold by the prophets." Actually, it was the other way around. The Hebrew prophets did not predict the events of Jesus' last week; rather, many of those Christian stories were created to fit the ancient prophecies in order to show that Jesus, despite his execution, was still and always held in the hands of God."

      "In terms of divine consistency, I do not think that anyone, anywhere, at any time, including Jesus, brings dead people back to life."
