Complex explanations and simple explanations are often treated as antithetical and antagonistic properties, but in reality, like every "polarity",
complexity and simplicity mutually inform one another to make them what they are.
Take the claim "everything is love". It is a simplistic statement, yet to me and many others, it an ontological truth - a fact of reality. It is not
just something "in my mind", but the very principle/force which generates coherency, maintains symmetry, seeks complementarity, and creates a
Look at how my very description has progressed from a simple statement "love is everything", to an explanation that later invokes concepts from
physics - such as 'coherency', 'symmetry', 'complementarity', and 'matter'. To a physicist, all of these terms refer to the way things work
within a system of coordinates. Coherency, symmetry, complementarity, and matter, are all processes, and all refer to 'ideals' which are
contrasted by incoherency, asymmetry, "symmetry breaking", and even antimatter. All things exist as a continuum of relationships with many
dimensions, which in living beings, are intricated throughout its structure and function.
This proves to be a difficult thing to handle for many people, because not having a language of their embodied experience (a sort of 'biosemiosis'
of interpersonal symmetry/asymmetry dynamics) they just accept, assimilate, and absorb, the mentalities around them which find some sort of
compatibility (symmetry, complementarity i.e. meeting a need they have for coherence) which lies within the 'tacit realm' - the realm of your
feelings, which in reality are accretions and projection embodied as neural structure responding to external dynamics that 'activate' and
'trigger' their arousal, whereas society at large - so overly focused on external things, creates people with dysregulated feelings which are "made
sensible" by primitive rationalization processes that operate towards one 'attractor': feeling pride. Pride, it turns out, is the sine-quo-non for
mental and bodily vivacity. Without the enlivenment that comes with the self seeking ways to enliven itself, the body becomes depressed. This is why
older people who finish a 'final project' (such as a book) often die right after finishing it: their sense of a 'future orientedness' - a place
and goal in the world - has diminished, and their bodies experience less of a metabolic 'zest', effectively placing heart and cells in a different
Complexity and Simplicity are both essential for living and experiencing a sense of wellbeing. A simplistic collapse of all feelings into the
provenance of the "moment", as if all of reality - all that matters (understood as an ontological organization of material conditions which is more
complex/coherent/stable than a prior state) could be determined by a simply belief that says "only the now matters", necessarily places itself at
the whim of the 'butterfly effect'. Dissociation of things that matter - of material organizations that offer a more coherent relationship with the
dynamics/meanings around you - gradually destabilizes the internal world of an individual, because acting from the moment necessarily dissociates from
any interest in the reason why you feel this way. Not every act deserves this sort of introspection - but only a particular genus of actions
which we can place into the category of being motivated by a defensive pridefulness. Anytime logic and coherence shows us to be wrong, and we
still persist in our convictions, we are harboring within our ontological 'space' a little idol - a little tiny - very tiny, and essentially unreal
- idea that me and my convictions somehow stand as 'more real' than the evidence available to every person who simply attunes to the cause/effect
dynamics. Objective reality vs. subjective reality, can be confused and confounded by a metaphysical conviction that the 'now' is more real, that
the inchoate feelings I feel indeed have 'no real explanation', but, like the 'primeval chaos' that precedes creation, my acting from an extreme
state of whim is more true than one that subjects itself to the rigors of reason.
This sort of philosophy - a popular philosophy amongst the elite - is nothing more than an example of the POWER OF THE SYSTEM to confuse/confound
minds, by hiding from their awareness that personal experience generates affective states, which means thoughts like "I hate government", or
"I hate other people telling me what to do", have everything and only to do with actual caregiver-infant relationships, that first pass through
the depression and shame of not having your needs recognized by others, before a position of "anger" and rigid-authoritarianism and a religious
faith of ones own willpower crystallizes in childhood, adolescence etc.
Reality is reality, and reality has little care for what Human myth has to "say" to it. Humans are enveloped by the worlds natural processes, and so
it is and will forever be: to want to pretend that your consciousness is really "alien" and "outside" reality, is only to conceal and
misunderstand a trauma that has put your representational mind (forebrain) out of sync with its affective mind and somatic body. Thinking is
mattering. What we think mobilizes processes within our actual material structure - and so what we think about has ontological significance for
brain-function and mental experience.
Lying - not representing things coherently - does nothing but breed a slavery to extreme emotions - a perverse and unruly sexual horniness because sex
is placed as the highest good; an impassioned acquisitiveness and belief in a right to property, which generates anger and extreme hatred for people
who seek to "steal" their wealth which they have earned - so goes the myth - "by their own intrinsic virtue and prowess". Eventually people like
this 'rack up' an ontological list-of-people-whose-death-i'm-partly-or-wholly-responsible-for, and if they are consciously doing this, their
antagonism against reality has reached a level of antagonism even against a sense of the sanctity of life. Throughout there is irony and a perverse
championing of the irony. They love life and live for the 'moment', yet degrade and devalue their own knowledge of other peoples similar desire and
care for living. They act without concern for the consequences to others, because with each act, their internal dissociation of the affects/effects of
the act, generates an internal 'defensive' action: an antagonism against the principle of "not to kill". Apathy grows. Carelessness grows. Abuse,
Trauma, and a cultish love-for-evil, grows.
This is the complex reality of how Human social processes work, and have worked since the dawn of the Neolithic. What the powerful do - and need to do
- to metabolize the consequences of the actions they take to meet some goal (usually maintaining or growing their power) also happens to make them
more internally unstable, more prone to "relaxing" their sense of 'realness' to reality, so that reality will not 'strike back' with the
information it contains - and holds - for the mind that seeks to hide.
The goals of the green movement, on the other hand - of a move to a 'time beyond work', represent a natural completion of a process that began long
