My prophecy for the future
You all say what you think will happen. This is my desire.
Each day people will awaken with a growing dissatisfaction that will dispel all of the internal narratives that have been imposed against them until such a time as they reject the authority of every other person and pick up the rod of their own creative powers. People will turn away from the light and will instead begin to emit their own light, dispelling the darkness through personal illumination.
The powers of creativity and production will spread laterally like a contagion across our world until the average person is more inventive than the geniuses of the past and a new Golden Age will be born out of humanity, not bestowed upon us by some deity, but uplifted among us as our contribution to the cosmos. Life will be joyous, people will have almost full self-determination and self-actualization by the end of their lives, and all of the pyramids of the world will be destroyed, leaving us to prosper in a land of equality, community, liberty, prosperity, creativity, wisdom, justice, peace and passionate vitality.
We will build our tower to the heavens, not by invitation from the initiated, but by our own conscious authority, and the script will be flipped once and for all. As Below, So Above. Paradise will bloom from beneath our feet and the serpent will rise up to devour the higher realms once and for all. Through hardship to the stars. No longer will anyone be asked to sacrifice themselves or to devote their lives to mediocrity so that a few can live in comfort. We will no longer need to accept a small pond so the big fish might rule, instead, we will all flourish in a vast ocean of our productive efforts.
All of the forces in this world have become as chattering to me. The superstitions are falling away. The idols are being shown for what they truly are. Today is the merger of ego and soul. Today is the merger of mind and emotion. Today is the birth of what we are meant to be.

I don't see any place where the OP has touted his wisdom over anyone elses. Seems to me he is simply saying, if someone is touting themselves as an expert, or a sage, they shouldn't talk down to anyone, or talk in riddles and metaphors. Speak plainly, and tell what you know if that is your intent. And don't tell the rest of us we're dense because we don't comprehend your parables.
There is no proof of your 'wisdom' just as you are dismissing others exclamations of supposed 'wisdom' due to lack of proof.
How is your 'wisdom' different? I suspect it isn't.
