Ever felt like you're not sure if you want to share some of your thoughts and findings because you still hate people and want to keep any progress to yourself, so that you might rise above other people and feel good about yourself?
I do not come to the same conclusion. I believe that people, parts of the human collective mind, that are on lower levels of spiritual development, and thus lower level of development of desires, help the people that have evolved further then them. I am very cautious of holding opinions or expressing them, because I find that almost always anything I look into morphs as I look into it. Any issue I research unfolds layers I was previously unaware of and my perception and opinion about it changes accordingly. That's why I try not to judge anyone for holding the opinion they hold. The only reason I do sometimes hold opinions is because if you don't have any opinion you don't have much to work with to try to debate with other people or to try to find refuting evidence against. I try to have all of my opinions subject for change and I try not to identify with currently held opinions and ideas.
I can't speak to Israel and Aspergers but: "Maybe those people who see these things as worthy of hatred or fighting against are people who's souls have not developed enough to perceive the world correctly?"
Exactly. There's no logical reason why we, as advanced as we are, should still be killing each other over resources and religious beliefs.
A developed soul can envision a utopia with no war, hate, or greed. The world would run just fine if people were happy with having enough to live instead of longing for excess. The greedy bastards at the very top have ruined everything for the rest of us.
I agree. I believe everything is connected. I have not yet read The Perennial Philosophy by Aldous Huxley, but I plan to and I think there might be something relevant to this discussion in that book. I think the picture on the cover of that book is a perfect illustration. I do believe that as your soul ascends you connect the dots more, you see the bigger picture more. Because the separation is of the low soul and unity is of the high.

I sometimes wonder why there is even a philosophy and metaphysics forum side by side with the conspiracy forums. It seems like the two do not mix. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the discussions there, that I lose sight of my metaphysical self. But I just came to realize while writing this post that there is a subtle bridge that combines metaphysical thought with even conspiratorial thought. I feel that not only are human beings connected, but so are concepts. The trick is finding yourself from A to B.
