Reflections in a Petri Dish – November 4, 2010
Just as there may be no boundaries to wisdom and understanding and just as the key to their treasures may be found in the magic phrase, “I don’t know”, stupidity and greed seem to have no boundaries either and the password is, “I know”. Not a day passes when I am not stunned, shocked and dismayed by the depths of ignorance and greed that pervades this planet in this Dark Age. Those who profiteer from this ignorance and greed, do everything they can to encourage and develop them. They’ve turned the human race into a retarded Bonsai farm, metaphorically speaking; a world of stunted proles.
A partnership exists between humanity and Nature. When the relationship is optimum, they work for a mutual improvement whose result is paradise. When humanity bends Nature out of shape for the purpose of blind self interest then the result is Hell. Paradise on Earth and Hell on Earth are the two prime options, with a chiaroscuro fan that opens between them. Balance is the trademark of the one end and imbalance is the accelerating condition on the other.
We can argue until doomsdays break about the perceived reasons for any and all of this but the fact is that it is and the good news and the bad news is that the results are specific to the acts and intentions of those engaged. It’s like a long suffering, domestic argument. In the course of it, things will be said that apply to the problem and things will be said that are not properly understood, because the motivation is not to understand but to persist. So the argument continues, until the protagonists have grown so far apart that there is no remedy that can result in union. The smart thing is to realize that there is a problem and to fix it, while it can be fixed. It all comes down to selfish willfulness on one or both parts and there is no solution to be found there, except to cease from the practice.
Once stupidity has got its hooks into you, due to the pursuit of blind, comfort oriented progress; the imperative of self will triumph over any and all restraint. You become the victim of imperfect awareness that accompanies this kind of mind set and behavior, then torment, enslavement and certain death are the inevitable results. You can’t get there from here. It’s painful on my end to see it surrounding me and to know the causes and the predators that use these conditions for their own gain, sport and amusement. We are dealing with a type of psychopath that has no limits upon what they will do to get what they want.
A whole lot of us are going to get flushed down the cosmic toilet. It’s what we want. We can be told what’s going to happen but it makes no difference. We’re so damn sure that we are right that no information to the contrary is going to have any effect at all. Those of us that are on another path can only do our best to help as we go and keep our eyes on the goal of liberation and an awareness of the protections that follow those whose course is aligned with the best intentions of the universe itself. It could all be so simple and it is but the base drives of the possessed and deceived require ever increasing complexities and confusions to mask the truth of their obsessions.
Every day I think of something I might say that might contribute to an improvement in the human state and day by day I am informed that very few people will ever come here to experience it. Things like Facebook and Twitter; networking portals, for those who take things at face value, or come under the definition of ‘twits’ rule the day. Verizon has an ad out now about Rule the Air
. The odious cynicism is a marvel. The pandering is a work of art. At no point is any reference made to ‘the prince of the air’
. Is this some kind of coincidence? I’m not pushing any particular religious viewpoint. I am calling attention to the main religion of a country, where the ad is based and wondering… are they serious and what do they really mean? For those of us whose eyes are somewhat opened, you can see examples of this sort of thing everywhere and it is clear that the political and religious institutions are corrupt in a spectacular way and that the greatest enemy of both systems is the master of both and the tiniest demographic tyrannizes in relation to the largest demographic and is this some kind of coincidence too? It’s not.
I watched the movie, “The Social Network
” last night and it said as much as anyone wants to see about how success is achieved in this world and by what means. Treachery and betrayal are the order of the day. Here you have someone who believes in nothing beyond what is in the material realm, according to his bio. Here you have someone with four billion dollars, whose concern about bad publicity caused him to give one hundred million dollars to the Newark school system and whose philanthropy had been practically nil to that point. Bill Gates was giving out tiny little $5000, grants, until the press got on his ass and then, in defense, set up a foundation. Does the money actually help anyone? What is it about people who have more than they will ever spend being as cheap as Silas Marner?
What Mark Zuckerberg did to his best friend and supporter is a wonder to behold. The film captured the psychopathic personality very well. It left out a great deal
but a lot could be intuited for those looking. It’s as if the director knew what he could say and found another way to say what he couldn’t. I thought to myself, “Yeah, that’s how they do it”, “that’s how they are”.
Lately I seem to always come back around to certain types of personalities and the historical trends and actions that attend them. I keep coming back to the alterations of history and the fanatical drive for the controls over education, banking and information and how it is all turned into service for the war machine, which feeds the profit and pleasure of those so engaged. The glaring evidence of who is most deeply engaged in these things is inescapable and violently denied, even while the facts are irrefutable. It makes one think that the prophecies of old are guaranteed because the players are the ones so named and the behaviors are the ones so described and they were there at the beginning, as they will be at the end, for a short time.
I apologize for harping too often of late upon the same issues and miscreants. It needs to be completely said at my end and I believe I have done that and am considering other venues and vehicles now. I recognize the danger I have put myself in by stating and revealing things that go contrary to gratuitous laws created to protect evil behavior. I recognize that I spend too much of my time doing things that leave me insolvent on one level but possibly accruing valuable credits; if you believe in that sort of thing. I realize the limitations of my efforts in terms of reaching the very people who might be most advantaged by them but… who have opted for stupid and blind as a life course, because stupid and blind permits things that sanity and wisdom would reject.
In terms of what the world considers acceptable and successful, I am on another list but… I’ve no desire to be like the rest of them, just for the purpose of temporary gain and lasting suffering and pain that attends the agendas of the selfish and self-interested. The jury is out on who’s right but the jury is not out on the appearance of the state of the world in terms of an objective view. Objective viewing is not a signature dish of these times. It is up to each of us to adhere to the promptings of our conscience or to shut it out or reinterpret the urgings as something we would prefer to hear; something that echoes the demands of our appetites and desires. You’ll have to be the judge of that in your life.
I’m optimistic about what’s coming and pessimistic about the wider scenario as it affects the wider population. As an uncle of mine used to say, ‘those who cannot hear must feel”. It’s also true that the universe will come down on us to the degree that it takes to hear it. Its two by four time on Planet Earth. It’s the bed of fire in a nightmare, where the dreamer refuses to awaken. It’s what it is, not what we paint it as and we shall see what the truth is concerning what is and what is not. We are seeing it at this moment, if we are seeing at all and that is accelerating in the same way that time is speeding up.
I don’t know how useful all of this has been on my part but… if it has only served to keep me more on course, then I consider it a plus and a half and more. In the end, we are the result of our beliefs and the solidity of the schematic upon which we based them. We are bound toward the moment of truth, where our beliefs and behaviors are matched up with the cosmic blueprint of what is correct and what is not. We have no one to blame but ourselves, if the result is less than we hoped for. I think the answer lies in our own judgment, concerning the degree to which all of what we sought after and did for it, expresses itself in our hearts upon reflection; petri dish… mirror… . or whatever the case may be.
