In defence of... God

If you read any cultures' religion, viz. "God" (or some other name) - used to signify a monotheistic or ultimate Supreme Being from which all other divine attributes derive - and substitute, "Mind", that's what they were really talking about... but of course they didn't know it, and still do not.

No reasonably civilized human nowadays believes that great nature and the seasons are caused by gods or goddesses - you know, river deities, forest deities, weather deities etc. - or that there are ghosts and goblins living in their own home sweet home, or demons and other devils living in their next door neighbor's ramshackle abode. Such thoughts have long ago abandoned the dream and fantasy worlds of the more educated and sophisticated humans... well, save for the ONE BIGGEE that refuses to retire: "God" with a "capital G (now that humanity, in general, has already abandoned all the lesser, small "g" gods and goddesses). Even those who say they don't have an interest in religion or "God"- having no particular attraction to religions or the idea of "God", even to the point of calling themselves atheists - when they hear someone else talk about the characteristics and attributes of their "God", it affects them too... they have no choice. Because in those moments, it is the brain talking about itself, and everyone is immediately affected by that.
Why can't the brain realize what it's doing?
It's impossible for it to do so!

When the brain is talking about "God", it is talking about itself. It's realized what it's doing regarding the lesser gods - of mountains, trees, rivers, animals, seasons, etc. - but regarding the greater big G "God", the supreme Power... no way. And there's no evidence whatsoever that human minds are changing in that regard - certainly not in the last 6000 years. The only answer must be, that the human brain (and emergent "mind") is literally incapable of thinking/talking about itself, while knowing it's thinking/talking about itself. Some kind of schism occurs, a division between "talker" and "listener", or between the "lower" and the "higher", such that one might imagine there being "lips" and "ears" in there.

Interesting note: you usually can't talk believers out of belief in their "God", although the better educated, and more sophisticated can more easily be swayed, often using good science and good logic. But you never find semi-aboriginal, uneducated, unsophisticated peoples who are atheists or agnostics, so firm is their inbred belief in "God".

Now, even though practically no one believes in small "g" gods, almost everybody (85% or so) still believes in a big "G" "God" of whatever name they give it. Why? Remember, it's their brain talking about itself. Of those who say they believe in "God", it's not so much that you can't talk them out of it... you can not make them see that when they talk and think about "God", it's their brain talking and thinking about itself, and describing its own attributes. If you tell believers or non-believers that, you'll likely get no reaction whatsoever, as though they didn't even register the statement. But, when you tell them this to their face (their brain), be sure to look higher up on their forehead than where the eyes are - because that's where they are processing your statements, up in the frontal lobes. (In the attic, so to speak, seriously/dangerously close to the.... "escape hatch"... but that's another story.)

Perhaps Life and the Universe, are two different (separate) things. Life is controlling the thought-generating brain, and the Universe is controlling the non-thought-generating universe.

Lips and Ears, perhaps?

In defence of...

LOTS of silence
interspersed with 
LOTS of speaking.

Clearly, not everyone has been designed by Great Nature to do what is being done here. Which, when you start thinking about it, is really strange. From one view, it is almost anomalistic. Life creates a species that can think, speak, and write with a degree of consciousness and awareness quite unknown in the rest of organic life on Earth, and yet - with all that preparation and sophistication - fewer than a few thousand humans (or maybe it's five thousand, or fifteen - but really, who cares... it's not a large number!) are even INTERESTED in the kinds of questions and concepts being pushed and shoved around here, and a scant few other places. Clearly!

Having known personally about fifty humans, or a little more  who claim to be interested in This Kinda Stuff, only a handful at most have ever pushed their own intellect, willpower and creativity in this way... which is the strange thing being pointed to here. Why so few, and WHY NOT MANY MORE?

Everyone - by the time they are on their own in life - should have the nearly perfected ability to speed read, speed think, and speed write, yet the overwhelming quantity of mostly junk they read, mostly nonsense they think, mostly silliness they write, including damn near everything they say out loud, proves - even to weekend "Pursuers of Truth" - that NOBODY is interested in ANYTHING WORTHWHILE, so consumed are they by the desire for more money, more entertainment, more power, and more bad behavior.

Everyone - simply by being born in a HUMAN body - has the "Gift of Eternal Life" wired into their DeoxyriboNucleicAcid yet, by their own extreme inattentiveness and uncaring attitudes about everything truly meaningful, they manage to squander their gift, and usually long before they reach middle-age (the fabled "35ish") when it becomes (almost) TOO LATE to start on the Way that leads to Permanence, or Consciousness, or Enlightenment, or Nirvana, or whatever term they like best by then... yes, you get to pick your own.

It is not true that humans don't know WHAT to do, 
or even HOW to do it, or even WHY to do it.
That IS the "Gift of Eternal Life"

How is it Squandered? That's pretty easy: 
not enough Silence about everything, 
not enough Thinking about what really matters, 
not enough Speaking One's Own Truth;
(not parroting, copy/pasting someone else's) 

Question from the bleachers:  
"Why do you persist in calling 'us' HUMANS instead of PEOPLE?" 
---Simple... 'People' are the fully evolved state of humans, in their own time and place.
                    Be thankful we don't refer to humans, as "walking nervous systems."

Unnecessary Talking

Humans everywhere so enjoy their talking, both quietly under their breath and inside their heads, and noisily over their breath and into other's heads, that they have made a "second career" out it. Whatever day-job or life-style a person has, including lone workers (artists, craftsmen, laborers, etc.), there is almost continuous discussion (again, to remind: inside the head and outside the head) about something or other, and they almost always enjoy the hell out of it. Too bad people in general are not "paid by the word!"

Humans everywhere understand from an early age, that talking to other people brings more pleasure and satisfaction, than pain and suffering, so their nervous systems (up there in the membrane) have learned quite well how to continuously engage in this verbal activity - inside their heads and outside their heads - even to their OWN detriment.

"Detriment? WTF you say? 
You just said, and I agree, 
people enjoy it a lot, it's pleasurable, so... 
how could that be detrimental?"

Good Question: for the masses, it's quite necessary, and most won't ever see or realize what is detrimental about too much unnecessary talking about mostly nothing at all (nor should they), so this message is not intended for them anyway (no biggee, since they are not even reading this!) This message is only for those who are interested in achieving something special, even extraordinary, about the Gift of Life they were given so many years ago.

"Schools and Teachings" were even established in order to reveal clearly what is so "detrimental" about it. Some (particularly in the East) even suggested NOT talking outwardly, in order to reach a state of NOT talking inwardly, so as to ultimately "reach enlightenment", and they have a place in the annals of "Schools and Teachings", but there is another way to look at ALL OF THIS.

Humans everywhere don't talk ENOUGH, and that is because they don't THINK ENOUGH, and that is because Life - out there in the world - stifles such activity second by second, minute by minute, from an early age. 

 "Stifles? WTF you say?"

Parents, Teachers, Friends, and almost everyone else - out there in the world - demand that you "BE QUIET", "Don't speak unless spoken to", "STFU would you?" et cetera and Et Cetera! You Know The Drill! This behavior was drilled into every living human from the-beginning-of-talking-humans so many millennia ago, and their descendants - being smaller, younger, submissive - obeyed well! The "problem" is that nobody realizes nor understands properly what this does now, and did then, to the development of the higher ends of the nervous system where conscious, intentional thought occurs. It doesn't just "stifle" growth there, it cauterizes the growth of those few neurons that might be able to peek above the level of ordinary, standard-issue, routine thought so common in the masses at the time. That is - if you see it - the younger are always forced to behave like the adults, and this goes all the way back (remember?) Adults are nothing more and considerably less than older, larger, more domineering children with more baggage, confused thinking, corrupted concepts and ridiculous beliefs than children.

From one view, humanity has descended from the heights that could have been reached had the parents NOT pushed the children into the dirt almost from the moment they could compose coherent sentences. Out-of-the-ordinary thinking and speaking is frowned upon by all, because it is outside the views of the masses who know - without actually knowing - what such "revolutionary thought" means for them. Fear and Trepidation in the adults, always leads to quickly putting an end to it, even forcibly.

Some humans here and there either lucked out, or got out in time, before their higher order potential was prematurely terminated, so that their capacity for Independent Thought, Objective Reason, Enlightenment in one life time, might actually flower later in their lives such that nothing and no one could turn them off their Aim, their Desire for the Higher. Nothing in life cures the ordinary "unnecessary talking syndrome" than "rolling the DICE": Discovery, Invention, Creation, Exploration, particularly up in the higher ends of the nervous system that you may have never experienced before (due to a severe lack of nourishment), which by the way is closest to the "escape hatch" - as if standing in the portal between cosmoses, an Awakened Witness to creation itself. One can't stay there forever, of course - not yet anyway - but until then...

Find others with whom to share your findings.

When one finds other people who can think and speak from this Aim and Desire, not only can the real fun begin in earnest, but real time and relative dimension in space travel throughout the cosmoses... but that's another story For Your Friends Only.

Rolling the DICE:  
Discover something is possible,  
Invent a way to proceed, which is always uniquely your own,  
Create a launchpad, or starting point, or jumping off ledge, or crack in the ceiling...and  
Explore your new environment and surroundings...
....and by all means pay attention, and don't talk.

Clear Thinking, a near-term "final frontier"

No one thinks their OWN thinking is faulty, but everyone thinks others' thinking is faulty, and will, usually, be glad to point it out, sometimes without even being asked. That is what people are doing in the Facebook, Twitter, Youtube (non-material) world, and elsewhere, in the Day-to-Day, Face-to-Face (material) world - without realizing it, of course. THAT IS... they are observing (looking at, and listening to) their own, and other people's thought processes - up close and personal - ostensibly, to make some sense of it all, and also, to make (internally, but not expressed, as well as externally expressed) comments about it, as if that is a suitable way to hold up one's end of the conversation... yeah right!

This is particularly true on all the so-called "consciousness raising" venues, especially those with a slightly, or even greater emphasis on spiritual, religious, esoteric thoughts and ideas. People are generally NOT THERE to find out how to throw better clay pots, or build faster racing engines, or paint prettier pictures - hey, there are tens of thousands of places one can go to learn all about those things. No, they are there to discover something useful about THINKING - particularly, their own thinking.

Obviously, the first thing one will discover - if one is reasonably adept at observing themselves in real time without theorizing (commenting, criticizing, condemning, complaining, etc.) - is that they only believe, only imagine, they are in complete and total  control over their thinking processes. Frequently, relatively well-constructed thoughts can be created and spoken, and sometimes even written, without one's knowing in advance what was going to come out. It often seems as though thoughts think themselves, while using your brain, mouth, hands (gestures, pens, keyboards) to communicate them in some way. It seems as though, thoughts MUST BE EXPRESSED, and from a very young age, which is getting younger and younger as the technology becomes even more pervasive, and the means to communicate becomes easier. Just look at the proliferation of smart phones, worldwide, in the hands of the very young, from preteens on up!

Clearly, there is "something afoot!" and it is increasing every day. Humans have been talking to some small degree for a little over a hundred thousand years or so, increasing somewhat during the last couple thousand years, but in the last several hundred years - from about the beginning of the 18th century, and the increase in literacy - the amount of talk between people has obviously increased, and in the last few short decades, with the invention, growth and expansion of the Internet, primarily, it has increased exponentially.

The graph of all this looks like a classic hockey stick, and (curiously) mimics the apparent rise in Temperature and CO2 in the atmosphere, especially in the northern hemisphere... which, also curiously, is where microchips, computers, the Internet, and geostationary satellites were invented, and deployed successfully around the Earth, and matured into the worldwide behemoth it has become today, enabling manned and unmanned space travel throughout our solar system!
Who knows (for sure), that as Temperature and CO2 rise... the capacity for more and more complex thought also increases in human brains, so, the "something afoot" could be seen as "A Very, Very Good Thing," eventually enabling humans to SOLVE, and successfully IMPLEMENT, the overwhelming environmental and exploding population issues, and to fulfill the ambition the species has for space travel, including beyond this solar system, and not only to do serious scientific explorations, but also to re-locate entire populations off-planet, should that become absolutely necessary.

Who knows?
Or, to put that another way...
Who can even THINK clearly about it?
And... how many BRAINS will be required
to achieve all of that... in time!?!

The Only Help You'll Ever Need...

If your AIM is to Awaken (some call it achieving enlightenment, others call it reaching nirvana, and other things too), and to stay awake, even as those around you are slinging sticks, stones and words at your every thought, feeling and action (from the government, and all the way down to your family, friends, neighbors and acquaintances), you are going to need HELP.

Not just the occasional, accidental, drive-by, run-of-the-mill varieties served up like non-nutritious fast and junk-food tossed onto a plastic tray by minimum-wage workers, but the purposeful, intentional, well-prepared by those more conscious than you are, and thoughtfully designed and delivered delicacies that must be paid for in a variety of ways, but once paid for can produce just that kind of "gastro-neurological experience" that "lasts a LIFE TIME!" (That is, it is pertinent to you and your circumstances, and connected to your "GUT as well as your MIND" - which is ONE in any case, whether or not you already know that!)

Consider: There is a steel trap-door separating the upper floor of your usual abode, and the attic you have never even visited, let alone know is there unless you've been accidentally alerted to its existence by certain previous experiences: Like psychedelic drugs, for one; Death of loved ones and/or others; Extreme illness or accident, etc. But, even though what may have been experienced seemed astounding, to say the very least, it quickly dissipated as does all experience over time, and can hardly be recalled after some variable-length period of time. That is, ordinary personality takes over, tries to explain, understand, categorize, label and put it all away into a corner of one of the rooms of your usual abode, so that... Now, all that is "remembered" are stories about it, the anecdote(s) you tell yourself and others, usually at the drop of a hat. You may say these memories are MUCH MORE distinct, memorable, recallable - and you're right - but they are anchored in the past, and surrounded, and protected, by language that is NOT occurring in this moment.

The trap-door (an "escape hatch" for those so-inclined to squeeze through), though hard to find and harder to get through, is not really made of steel - of course - it only seems to be, since when it is finally discovered for yourself, you realize it can not be opened, or penetrated, or side-stepped, so it might as well be steel, and you only have "fleshy fingers" and "vaporous thoughts and feelings" to work with.

The Attic is something else entirely - not "in this world", not "of this world" - and should not be cluttered up by the refuse of ordinary life of thought-centricity. It is a "clean room", and one's conscious intention and attention will be required to keep it that way, because like "The Tardis" it is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside (and that one is for you to decipher!)

Oh, and by the way, if the subject line's ellipses left you "wanting more"... well, it's just this: Be Always Awake and Attentive, because the Only Help You'll Ever Need (to get everywhere, to achieve everything, to experience everything, and many other such "setups") is all around you. It is an Infinite Ocean of Living Energy that ordinarily can't be Eaten & Utilized, until it is "Cracked" - kind of like an egg; kind of like an atom - so that its potent inner juices may be absorbed into the higher ends of your nervous system (the operational home of those "fleshy fingers" and "vaporous thoughts and feelings") which is always just this side of the door to the Attic. You will need the power of 100 men, or more, to punch through that barrier, because just hoping and waiting, believing and waiting, planning and waiting, is NOT working out for anyone.  (What one "needs" is a "steel hard rod" made of "method and magic" and pushed straight into the center of the brain. NOTE: there are 3 links in this chain - "steel hard rod", "the eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend", "HENS house".)

Just, Look Around. Many billions of people struggling to get by - and even the richest of the rich are included here - because ALL OF US will soon be dying an untimely death, in the midst of a mostly unsatisfying life.

Vacation Destinations

The whole external world one has previously "passed through" is "in one", mapped onto the brain in areas one can only accidentally retrieve - perhaps that's a good thing, because those memories would constantly interfere with one's state, given the way the normal brain is continually making comparisons, associations, and noticing relationships, etc. Under the right circumstances, one can remember, or be made to remember one's very early childhood or even much earlier, and probably could be made to trace everything that happened from those days onward - clothes worn, other people present, furniture in that place, words spoken, feelings felt, etc.- and speak about them. But as one is ordinarily, one can NEVER be made to remember anything about Milan if one was never there, or Sydney, or Nome, because one was never there, and never watched movies or read books about them.
Same, of course, with "so-called" new ideas, which indeed are merely new places - not out there, but in here, being quite unfinished (site not located; foundation not poured) - though one does NOT have a clue where they might ultimately exist because the "map" has not been "encoded onto the new neural territory".
All words are in one. All ideas are in one. All possibilities exist for even ordinary humans, but few there be who can access the information directly. So they have to "share with each other" words, pictures, descriptions and subjective claims of what it all means, which is the way "those who supposedly know" try to remind other humans, of some "place" they've never seen, and never been, and may not even have suspected... but - as usual - the words, pictures, descriptions and claims of this as-yet-unknown location usually just distorts, if not even spoils the whole thing, making it even harder to grasp the "wholeness" that would otherwise be possible.

Sure, "teachers" MAY be able to convey the "suggestion" of this new, and apparently desirable "place", especially if they have in fact BEEN THERE and DONE THAT, though most never have, and are only "sharing" hearsay, from someone who got it all as hearsay themselves, who also got it as hearsay too. That is, the image and the reports they bring to you personally - "from their lips/fingers to your ears/eyes" - is so out of clarity/focus, in so many areas of the entire "place" that even if you were to struggle for years to figure out "what the hell they were talking about" - describing their memories of that place that was somehow constructed in their own heads - it would still only be a very poor representation of the reality of that wholeness

Try to explain your childood- through teenage-years home in Milan, to someone on this list - take ten paragraphs if you need them - and NO ONE will have a clue what you are talking about, as that "place" could be anywhere on earth, but for a few nouns and verbs and adjectives you might have used. Same with [enlightenment, nirvana, consciousness - take your pick]. The internal locations of these large concepts (like Milan) are totally UNKNOWN to you or anyone because, in this case, Milan just happens to be on Jupiter. ("What, did I forget to mention that?")

That is, unless you are being TUTORED by a once or current RESIDENT of the ACTUAL NEURAL LOCATION, called "Milan" - having himself set down "roots", even if only temporarily, before moving on - you are getting something that is much less than worthless, as it may be incorrect as well, and you usually can NOT know this in advance. Imagine spending years trying to decipher a set of maps, diagrams, footnotes, and associated terminologies that, in fact, were totally made up and had nothing to do with anything useful to an aspiring human trying to actualize their Personhood.

Bottom line, though I could go deeper... Know Your Own Nervous System's makeup - its circuitry, functions, systems and processes - first and foremost, and forget the purveyors of hearsay who have NEVER BEEN THERE or DONE THAT, but nevertheless hold their hearsay in too high regard (that's just childish imagination!) in favor of finding Vacation Destinations within, that you can rightly value highly, due to your own personal visitations... AND such that you can revisit when desired, or totally leave behind when and if that suits you. (You can't leave a place until you know it.)

For myself I want to visit

Fake News is "dangerous"

The reason fake news is dangerous is NOT so much that the news is incorrect, or unreliable, or upside-down - which it usually is. If that was the only problem, there would BE no problem. It is certainly not a problem for the entire rest of the animal kingdom (of which ALL humans are merely a small part), and for a very obvious reason (they don't have sophisticated BRAINS with which to decipher our language.) But it most definitely IS a huge problem, and dangerous too, for 99% of humans on this planet, who supposedly have sophisticated brains... except that... (hopefully, you already know what I am about to write here...)

If not, here it is: Ordinary humans - the great 99% - are incapable of VERIFYING news of any kind, particularly about the world-at-large, of which they are not directly able to track details to the necessary nth degree, but also the world-in-small they SHOULD be able to track (it's between their ears, after all!), but don't know how. In particular, the "soft kind" of information - psychological, philosophical, religious, political, etc. - is totally UNVERIFIABLE the first time it is heard or read, UNLESS one has personally discovered or invented or created that knowledge for oneself.... by their own efforts... but again, they don't know HOW. And yes, one can "invent" and one can "create" information, but that too requires knowing HOW.

So, how is fake news dangerous
As an obvious example in the world-at-large: Just look at America, right now. The STATE/MEDIA pushes the narrative IT wants out to the masses (via TV, radio, Internet, etc.) who eat it up like it actually tastes good. Of course, there are some few humans who GAG on it... and rightfully so!
As an obvious example in the world-in-small: Just look at yourself, right now. The BRAIN/MIND pushes the narrative IT wants out to you (via books, transcripts, audios, videos, etc.) and you eat it up like it actually tastes good. Of course, there are some few I's that GAG on it... and rightfully so!
What is going on here? Obviously, the ordinary human brain is constructed - by design and plan from "above", or cause and effect from "below" - to immediately AGREE or DISAGREE with whatever the language circuits "decode" (usually incorrectly, as it turns out) from, primarily, the sound and light waves that presented the information to your hearing (as in the sound in your head right now) and/or your reading (as in this very post.) THAT IS VERY DANGEROUS, because once some information, of any kind - but particularly the "soft kind" (unlike the "hard kind", like instructions to tear down and rebuild a Holley 4-barrel carburetor) - is taken for True and/or Correct, or False and/or Incorrect, it is difficult to change the mind on one's own. Even if your best friend, mate, spouse or date has alternative views, or (eeek!) opposing views, it is still very hard to change the mind.

Thus, such hapless humans are stuck living in an UNREALITY of their own (brain's) making! And, furthermore, they can't really be helped by the external application of simple logic, any more than a lifelong drunk can get permanently sober by being PREACHED to before they have already "hit rock bottom", and even then don't count on it happening. (It would be like turning a "Never Trumper Schumer" into an "Always Trumper Schumer"... yeah, like that could ever happen!)

Now, for the paragraph that will either get this author kicked out, or banned, or worse - laughed out of the clique, the "in crowd"... it's happened before... honestly. Groups of humans who are following - either publicly or privately - a "psychological system", and/or a "philosophical system", and/or a "religious system", or a "whatever-they-call-it-today" simply can NOT hear alternative viewpoints about THEIR "thing", especially when the viewpoint is specifically "If you haven't figured all this stuff out yet, you NEVER WILL," followed by the kicker: "Come on, it's just not that complicated!"

Humans stumble horribly on their use of language and it keeps them treading water for a lifetime, and they fumble even worse when reading and/or hearing the words of other humans. Language is the issue, Words are the issue. And their endless, sometimes insufferable penchant for arguing over the meaning, sense and significance of those words and getting bogged down in interminable discussions that usually go nowhere. Words, themselves, are a hindrance when not used rightly. BUT, they are like jet-fuel in a rocket-car when applied rightly to any situation.

When you come to a "stumbling block in the road" ("which way should I go, what should I believe?"), don't just stand there and ruminate and wonder and ask poorly constructed questions of all those standing there beside you doing the same thing (like on a Facebook, Yahoo, Google, Twitter forum), THINK FAST and "jump over" it, or "go around" it, or "EAT" it, by first realizing what the blockage IS. Imagine trying to tell, oh I dunno, a fourthway person, or a buddhist person, or a scientology person, or a christian person, or a jewish person, or a muslim person, that their system IS the stumbling block in the road. They won't hear a word of it, and will become angry or upset (and in some cases hit you, or kill you) if the matter is pursued, which is tantamount to turning and running away.

These stumbling blocks are What and How you think about the apparent (only, because it's not real) stumbling block. What all these blockages are, are "energy pellets" and they can be EATEN... when you know HOW
Remember Pac-man? Pac-Men awaken in a few months give or take a year or so. Humans usually never do. They just talk, and talk, and talk, and argue, and get frustrated, and ask silly questions, and get even more confused, while trying desperately to convince themselves they are still "on the road to find out" .
 Unfortunately, perhaps, most humans remain 
right where they originally became Blocked.
