Yes, we do. But this is a world-wide, I think, inculcating effort, with a specific goal….and though I'd like to believe the best, it isn't for the best, I think, but for destruction of the private, individual, human mind…..
For coalescence, as the Bible, our religions and our oligarchies, monarchies, and absolutely everything have been addressed to representing our humanity as evil, to justify our continued manipulation and control, vis a vis what I've already evidenced herein. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
I too have thought this, and many others. I think you're on to something.
Baudrillard's 'Simulacra and Simulation' is a good account of this. Marx also touched upon ideology quite extensively.
The misrepresentation of humanity by humans has had a grave affect on how we treat others and the earth.
You're the Sigmund Freud of spirituality. Failing in your attempt to recognize your self and know what you are, you try to bring everyone down to your limited awareness of reality, incorrect interpretations of spiritual practices and principles, misunderstandings and calling it 're-orientation'.
Do you picture the word "giraffe" as it's written or do you picture the animal itself? How does an abstract idea turn into a concrete word then into an abstract idea again? We're exchanging abstract ideas through a concrete medium. We are connected both physically and abstractly.
In order to claim that the non-existence of God is real it must be deduced.
To do that you would have to know everything.
It is illogical for you or me to think you know everything.
Therefore you have not deduced your apparent conclusion.
Its like you just joined a bunch of to try to prove, er, force your narrow view.
Maybe you've been beaten too much during life, maybe not enough.
The view of everything-one being connection seems pretty simple to me, feel free to over complicate it as much as you like though. It goes something like this. We came from the same spot, the big bang, we go to the same place when we die. Act like your separate from this if you please, but really you have no choice over it.
You are a parody, bearing the mark of someone who refuses any form of spirituality save for what they serve at the buffet. Grovelling at your masters feet, eating the scraps of wisdom from his table and calling it “spirituality”, has no bearing on the real world. Your “spiritual practices” amount to no more than mimicry and custom, and promoting the ideas of better creators, in the hope that you will be rewarded with the same happiness they were able to find on their own accord.

Regardless what you think it is.
It's down right rude and freaking childish.
Unless I'm right, and there's a pattern there. Then it's not rude. It's a fact.
Aphorism isn't interested in learning from ats members. He is interested in his sport, and preaching. Talking to him is a waste of time, just like talking to a fundamentalist. Saying that isn't rude, it's simple observation.
I appreciate your sticking up for people, but be careful lest you become zealous.
