Looking out your window watching people go up and down the street what do you think? On foot, in cars, in the bus, maybe on an airplane people are
going back and forth not talking to you. What do you think about them? Looks peaceful until you start thinking.
What do you look at? What's first? Man or Woman, White or Black, Young or Old, Beautiful or Ugly, Mainstream or Subculture, everyone has a first
thought. Is your first though a question of who? Who are they?
Why don't you know? We have been educated and programmed to think we don't know. It is not something that has been accomplished by modern science or
secret societies. It is something that has been accomplished by the culture of man.
A fractal from far away might look simple like a 5 pointed star. But when looked at up closely you see each singular point contains another 5 pointed
star and on the points of it another 5 and on and on until it never stops.
To understand the problem of the world we only need to look at the relationship between two people.
To understand the dynamic of how humans interact both when they are and are not communicating with eachother and what they are thinking during both of
these times. To compile everyones thoughts on top of eachother on seperate clear laminate sheets and to look down we will see the same fractal
although not 5 pointed. We will see one shape, one image of society and the closer and closer we look on all levels we will see the same relationship
in all its form.
Then and only then can we truly understand the problem of man and begin to apply a solution.
We cannot just so easily compile everyones thoughts together. But a relationship between mankind where we know who we are, everyone around us, we
would not have the difficulties that arise from being in a conditioned state of not knowing.
I hope at ATS we can try to work on this. The same annoying conflicts between personalities here on the board is the same problem that creates all the
seperate problems we talk about on this discussion board. There are metapatterns at ATS. Please find them and expose them and stop the conflict here.
Cultivate a culture we would like to live in. Enlightenment happens rarely, but when it does it spreads like wildfire and a whole culture can be
swayed by propaganda or woken up to the light.
Fight is a right we have to take and make use of. Fighting ourselves however is what we are currently doing. We have many things to fight for in the
world that don't include the destruction of our own human relationships and culture. Fight for growth for in truth survival is all we are here to do,
it's how we do it that counts.
