If someone were asked "Do you think a group of Satanists exert an undue control over the world", they would say that was absurd - and they'd be right. It is so hard to find any basis from the realities of our day to day system to see a deeper, darker current emerging within the whole. These people will tell us "nothing is there", and they'd be right, because from our "common sense" understanding, we try not to think about the evil that might be - and they'd be right. Perspective is everything, and all Humans incline towards relaxing their understandings towards viewpoints that support good feelings. Any viewpoints - indeed, the world we live within is a viewpoint factory - truth with falsehood - and the only way to overcome falsehood - education and a diligent and disciplined commitment to self-improvement - is not available for the 9 to 5 types - people who have no choice but to trust the world - and so experience a sense of goodness in their lives - or, distrust the world. Which would you choose?

This thing I'm doing - what I just did in the above paragraph, entailed a lot of "analyzing the behavior of my mind". Theorizing, indeed, about the way the human brain instinctively "theorizes" - or makes meaning, in terms of dynamical processes of energy arriving from social evocations - how others affect us and how the affects generate conflicts. Conflict seeks resolution, and so the narration of the speaking environnment - other people who engage or attract our attention - comes in, pouring within the fibres of the brain the flow and logic of the stories - its implicit and explicit impacts on the preexisting state of the system. "Noise" - irrelevant information - out; Meaning? Whatever is already relevant to the structure, comes in.

In reading Tim Wu's new book "The Attention Merchants", I've come to almost admire the clinical precision of the putative diabolical goons that are said to control this world.

Commerce. Capitalism. Business. Banking. Entrepreneurship. It's quite amazing how these innocent sounding enough terms, when brought together, facillitate the movement of a society straight into a strange combination of Orwells 1984 and Huxleys Brave New World. Look at your world and life right now - is it not involuntarily suffused with corporate images? Have you not be shaped and structured - involuntarily - to in some carry the mark of the corporate beast?

For instance, Wu describes a story of a school in twin rivers California that accepted corporate advertising in its hallways, its classrooms, and even on test papers and the morning announcements in exchange for $500,000 dollars a year. Why on earth would a school agree to this? They needed the money - the towns coffers are insufficient to maintain basic school materials. And so we see a larger scale pattern emerging: corporations buy elections, buy politicians, so that public schools are insufficiently funded by the government; school suffers from poor maintenance and chronic need, and in rushes in what Wu calls "the attention merchants". A seemingly innocent group of characters that make out a businessopportunity: can you blame them for capitalizingon it? They're entrepreneurial spirit is good for commerce and capitalism.

Wu bemoans how little of life remains truly private and outside the claws of private businesses that buy off politicians to avoid regulation. They do this so well by demonizing government and promoting a "libertarian" ideology - as if government doesn't first imply "the ability to govern" - and so render private corporate powers into an unelected government. There's a complete and total artistry - of course, completely satanic - in this movement between creating needs and offering solutions that promote private enrichment - the demonization of government, the demonization of socialism - and yet, look at this: the corporations are already in schools - so can you imagine how much more terrifying this is going to become in the Trump administration?

Imagine, for a second, what Betsy Devos, wife of Amway billionaire - and pioneer in shamelessly exploiting a pyramidal scheme construct - Dick Devos, who btw is also the sister of Eric Prince - the founder of the private mercenaries-for-hire firm Blackwater - when she assumes her office as secretary of education. How does she intend to help "fund schools"? Will it entail the attention-merchants? Will she claim that its good for the schools, good for the kids, and good for the country?

Whether or not frogs wait in a heating pan until being boiled to death - it seems to be the case that human beings don't notice when corporations are at the doorsteps on the very edge of getting access to influencing the opinions of human minds - and to what end? Already, autism is emerging - and many believe it is being mediate by a combination of too much stress, too much dissociation/manipulation of others/egotism, with a probable relationship to environmental toxins in our foods, our water, and our medicines. In short - our mind and body's are stressed, through this stress, a new "phenotype" is emerging: autism.

Autism is literally a condition of not being able to metabolize the social-evocations of others. It's "too much", and too much because dissociation - not acknowledging the intrinsic vulnerability in being human - is shaping more and more human mind-brains so that only some information gets in - and all the bad stuff, how others can make you feel and how you ignore it, or act in a way that only impliictly acknowledges a negative reaction - is "too much" for the developing infants brain - already made vulnerable by parental dysfunctions and the distractions of 21st century living - so that it inclines towards a different "attractor": a chronic dissociation of the affectivity of others, and so, an almost complete focus on impersonal and "objective" things.

Could you imagine a more desirous slave than this? Evidently, satan works gradually - pushing people towards materialism to the point that their materialism begins to reshape their brains - creating mind-brains that are too rickety to metabolize the dissociative impulsiveness of adult behavior.

Everyone deserves to be scared by this.

Hi.
That last sentence sounds kinda mean if you don't mind me saying so?

Lots of us are so busy jumping hurdles that get in the way of our dreams that we don't realize; each attempt- the bar is raised- and we wind up on our faces in the mud because we didn't know the bar was raised without our knowledge.

Sorry for the double speak. I tried to sound nice about it...We seldom look beyond our own noses.
We don't because we are basically honest and therefore 'believe' others are also as honest...

But not all of us exhibit actual real integrity, because we lack any real actual role models?
Fear of the unknown is scary, but when seeking knowledge and finding fruit therein- fear gets annihilated then morphs into anger if we find a rotten apple in our search?

Our best mechanism is self restraint; use the legal system put in place?
Don't go around pretending to be a soldier and unload your weapon- on anyone not aiming one at you first.

Our best weapon to defend ourselves is our brain?

I have no bragging rights when it comes to credentials;
I often wondered if our loved ones who are autistic, aren't they just in constant prayer?

Thanks for the thread.

Why be scared of the darkness when you can switch on a light?

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Own it.

In order for something to be perfect it must also be imperfect
So as to encompass all things

Juan


The bad things we do are the result of evolution. In other words, we generally think we got it otherwise but we do not.

We just know more stuff but that does not mean that some of our behavior, extrapolated, given what we understand today is not Animalistic.


Are you sure you are not Projecting?

And there are those of us that all this is turning us the other way. Never forget that these evil, bastards are a small, small, minority. There are billions and billions of truly good people on this planet Truth will alway win out.

Am I self-centered or is it just me?!


I guess you're asking the OP?

As a referent to God.....





In context God can be one of us otherwise how can God be infinite as God does then not encompass all things?

Essentially your response presents the argument that if anyone disagrees with you they are either ignorant or involved?

This is not Philosophy or otherwise should be construed as related to Metaphysics, actually has more to do with Propaganda.

Hey Astrocyte: great thread and exploration. How would you expect that Satan would work, other than gradual acceptance of him, as we're gradually denied admittance into a world we are contanstantly learning, perhaps, we wouldn't even want to be part of?

The "thing you're doing.." have you asked yourself why you're about doing it?
I see from your explanation you know what we're going through, so why are you doing that thing?
Are we really seeking conflict resolution, or redefining it, to advance a whole other mind flow pattern and philosophy?
And what do those realizations have, if any, effect upon the existing system and its outcome? Once we ponder all those perhaps hoods, so to speak, perhaps we wouldn't be so eager to ponder them , anymore.

I am an old lady. I deal perempertorively constantly with the reality of what has happened, and with those who choose to re-scape and re-explain it. I will let them, I've decided.

In other words, never mind. But I liked yoru thread, nonetheless.

The problem is that the apparent intent of the OP is not in relation to debate..

This is actually a Forum where Debate is part of the Forums Intent.

Otherwise why offer the idea of, "Deny Ignorance"?

I mean if I tell you that I am correct about everything and if you disagree with me it is because you are wrong for some reason?


That actually falls into the category of a considerarable amount, of a bunch of ........
