 ABOUT ME:

I’M JUST ANOTHER BOZO ON THE BUS… DOING MY BEST TO ENJOY THE RIDE AND ENCOURAGING OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.  DON’T SWIM AGAINST THE CURRENT, YOU’LL JUST TIRE YOURSELF OUT.

WE HUMANS, AS A SPECIES, HAVE CROSSED AN IMPORTANT BORDER. WE HAVE DEPARTED THE ‘AGE OF SCARCITY’ AND HAVE ENTERED THE LAND OF ‘ABUNDANCE’.

CHECK IT OUT:   HUMANS HAVE NOW ACQUIRED SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE ABOUT HOW THE UNIVERSE WORKS (GENERAL PRINCIPLES) THAT WE CAN AND ARE DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGIES BASED ON THAT KNOWLEDGE THAT NOW MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO PROVIDE FOR THE NEEDS (AND RAPIDLY APPROACHING THE ‘WANTS’) OF EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD ON OUR PLANET.  THE ABOVE STATEMENT WAS NOT TRUE WHEN I WAS BORN.

IN THE ‘AGE OF SCARCITY’ IT WAS POSSIBLE TO JUSTIFY WARFARE AND CONTESTS TO DETERMINE WHO GETS LEFT WITH WHAT.  IN THE ‘AGE OF ABUNDANCE’ THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR WARFARE AND CONTESTS OR CONQUESTS TO ACQUIRE WHAT IS NEEDED FOR LIFE.  ONCE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE IMPLICATION OF THE ABOVE TRUTHS WE ARE THE LEFT WITH CHOOSING HOW WE WILL PROCEED AS LIVING BEINGS INTO THE FUTURE.  AS IT TURNS OUT, IN THE ‘AGE OF ABUNDANCE’, THERE WILL BE NEW KINDS OF ‘PROBLEMS’ TO SOLVE.; NOT THE LEAST OF WHICH  IS… WHAT WILL WE ‘DO’ WITH OUR TIME IF WE ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED TO ‘STRIVE’ OR ‘CONTEND’ TO RECEIVE OUR LIVING.

THERE IS NO LONGER A NEED FOR HUMANS TO WORK AT TASKS THAT THEY DO NOT CARE TO PERFORM. NOR IS THERE ANY LONGER A NEED FOR A ‘HIERARCHY’ TO RULE OR CONTROL THOSE WHO THEY DEEM TO BE ‘LESS THAN’. THERE IS NO NEED FOR ARGUMENTS ABOUT ‘LABOR VS. MANAGEMENT’. NO NEED FOR ‘CAPITALISM’. NO NEED FOR ‘MARXISM’. NO NEED FOR THE OLD SYSTEMS AT ALL.

WHAT IS NEEDED MORE THAN EVER IS FOR HUMANS TO BEGIN EXERCISING OUR IMAGINATIONS TO INVENT… ‘BEST CASE SCENARIOS’.  GONE IS THE NEED TO DWELL AND FOCUS ON ‘WORST CASE SCENARIOS’.

ITS REALLY IS UP TO YOU… ARE YOU WILLING TO IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE ALL NEEDS AND WANTS ARE AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE… WITHOUT TOIL AND WITHOUT ANYONE BEING HARMED AS A RESULT OF THE CREATION OF  OMNI DISTRIBUTED ABUNDANCE?

IN THE MEANWHILE, I WILL CONTINUE TO EXPLORE AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO ACCEPT THE IDEA THAT WHILE YOU MAY HAVE MANY FAVORITE BELIEFS OR OPINIONS… NONE OF US ACTUALLY ‘KNOW’ TOO MUCH.  WE INVENT IT AS WE GO ALONG (HINT: LANGUAGE IS A TOOL OF CREATION).

LAO TZU WAS ONTO SOMETHING IN HIS ‘FINGER POINTING TO THE MOON’ METAPHOR.  THE FINGER IS LANGUAGE. THE MOON IS THE ‘ESSENCE’… THE ‘REAL THING’ THAT LANGUAGE MAKES AN ATTEMPT AT DESCRIBING. WHAT WE WHO USE LANGUAGE OFTEN FORGET (IT’S TOO DARNED OBVIOUS) IS THAT ALL WORDS;  WRITTEN, HEARD, AND SPOKEN ARE ONLY SYMBOLS.  A SYMBOL CANNOT EVER ATTAIN TO BE THE ACTUAL ESSENCE.

HENCE, LANGUAGE IS A TOOL IN THE HUMAN TOOL BOX, THAT POINTS US IN A DIRECTION.

ALL THE GREAT PONDERERS, THROUGHOUT THE AGES, AND IN ALL CULTURES KNEW THIS. ANY HUMAN OR HUMANS WITH INTENTION CAN ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO ‘FOLLOW’.  ALL THAT IS NECESSARY IS TO TELL A CONVINCING TALE (OR EVEN A PREPOSTEROUS ONE) IN A CONVINCING MANNER. THIS IS THE ART OF RHETORIC.  GET A SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF HUMANS TO ‘BELIEVE’ SOMETHING…  AND WHAMO… SHIM SHALABIM… ABRACADABRA… SHAZAM… THEY BEGIN TO WORK TO BRING THE BELIEF INTO THE REALM OF ‘HUMAN REALITY’.    … AND HERE WE ARE.

THE CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS THAT WE CALL THE ‘HUMAN CONDITION’ IS NOTHING OTHER THAN AN AGGREGATE CONGLOMERATION OF WHAT HUMANS HAVE ‘BELIEVED’ AND NOW ‘BELIEVE’.  ALL EXTANT ORGANIZED RELIGIONS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION… ALL EXTANT GOVERNMENTAL AND POLITICAL SYSTEMS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION… AND ALL EXTANT ECONOMIC SYSTEMS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION WERE CONSTRUCTED FIRST IN LANGUAGE. THE WORDS FORMED THE VERY IDEAS UPON WHICH ALL THOSE ABOVE MENTIONED SYSTEMS WERE BUILT.  REMOVE THE ABILITY TO CREATE LANGUAGE AND YOU REMOVE THE ABILITY TO CREATE COMPLEX HUMAN INTERACTIONS.

THE THING TO KEEP IN MIND IS THAT NONE OF THOSE IDEAS ARE NECESSARILY ‘TRUE’.  THEY WERE INVENTED BY SOMEONE AND THEN THEY WERE TRANSMITTED/SHARED. THE AGGREGATE ‘BELIEF SYSTEMS’ FORM THE VERY CORE THAT IS THE DEFINING DESCRIPTION OF ANY PARTICULAR HUMAN ‘CULTURE’.

ONTO THE ABOVE REFERENCE TO ‘TRUE:

HERE, I WILL LEAVE THOSE OF YOU WHO GOT THIS FAR WITH THE NAME OF A CERTAIN GREEK THINKER WHO THREW THE RHETORICAL EQUIVALENT OF WATER ONTO THE FIRE OF THOSE WHO WERE WILLING TO ‘BELIEVE’ IN A SYSTEM OF ‘REASON’ AND OR ‘LOGIC’ THAT THEY THEMSELVES CONSTRUCTED WITH  …TA DA…   LANGUAGE.

THIS MAN WAS A THE LEADING PONDERER OF THE FIELD OF SKEPTICISM… THE PYRRHONIC SKEPTICISM IN PARTICULAR.  HIS NAME: SEXTUS EMPIRICUS. http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/theses/available/etd-10022002-171041/unrestricted/BRZNA2.DOC.pdf

IF YOU CARE TO FREE YOURSELF FROM DELUSION (GAIN MENTAL SELF-LIBERATION) THEN MAY I SUGGEST YOU INVEST SOME TIME GETTING ACQUAINTED WITH THE IDEAS OF SEXTUS EMPIRICUS.

LIKE THE CHARACTER IN THE MATRIX SERIES, MORPHEUS, I WILL ONLY SAY THIS ONCE BECAUSE ONCE YOU MAKE YOUR CHOICE IT’S DONE, YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. OR, YOU CAN AVERT YOUR  EYES, PRESS A FEW KEYS AND MOVE TO A NEW WEB SITE, TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER, GO WATCH A TELEVISION NEWS PROGRAM (PROGRAM?), OR GO TAKE A NAP,  IT IS YOUR CHOICE.

GRASPING THE IDEAS OF THE PYHHRONIC SKEPTICS IS LIKE TAKING THE RED PILL. THERE IS NO GOING BACK. YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO RELY UPON YOUR OWN DELUSIONS TO NAVIGATE YOUR WAY THROUGH LIFE, NOR THE BORROWED DELUSIONS OF OTHERS.

WHAT YOU WILL BE LEFT WITH IS THE SAME AWKWARD (AND FOR SOME, FRIGHTENING) REALIZATION THAT LIFE IS MORE MYSTERIOUS THAN YOU ARE LED TO BELIEVE. YOU HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF POWER THAT YOU ARE UNWITTINGLY GIVING AWAY TO IDEAS THAT YOU DID NOT GENERATE.  YOU ARE LENDING YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS POWER TO THE CURRENT SYSTEMS.

IF AND/OR WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO NOT ALLOW YOUR BELIEF TO BE HIJACKED, YOU WILL BE FREE. YOU MAY THEN CHOOSE TO EXPERIMENT IN REALMS BEYOND LANGUAGE. THEN, YOU MAY BEGIN TO EXPERIMENT WITH  GENERATING YOUR OWN ‘REALITY’.

I WILL VENTURE THAT NEITHER LAO TZU NOR SEXTUS EMPIRICUS  WAS GIVEN MUCH WEIGHT IN YOUR PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.  MY BET IS THAT THOSE WHOSE JOB IT IS TO ‘KEEP THE SYSTEMS GOING’ WILL NOT BE ENCOURAGING THE STUDENT BODY TO BE EXPOSED TO THESE IDEAS.

RED PILL?  OR BLUE PILL?  NOW IT’S YOUR TURN TO CHOOSE.
