There are some interesting clues to an important concept. Look at the Blue Meanies in the movie "The Yellow Submarine." Then think, why were the
Beatles so good at music? It seems to me that there are "mediocre beams," or some such thing surrounding our social structure.
The Beatles seemed to turn off those "mediocre beams," for lack of a better term. Watch the movie "Let it Be," and notice how they do it, how they
sound like a garage band for a little while as they create something, then they turn into The Beatles.
Why are way too many musicians fighting their own tendency to mediocrity? Think about it if you are a musician, it takes hours and hours of practice
to get started, then some distraction sinks your idea. Oh the Beatles were not just about "focus," or "concentration." Look at their songs "I'm
Only Sleeping," for a clue to overcoming mediocrity and living the dream. All those sleepless nights playing in a dive in Hamburg seem to indicate
another level of consciousness fulfilling human excellence. You become relaxed, and pay attention, then you create genius work.
It is probable that government even broadcasts signals to dumb people down, and to ruin good music. It only allows a small number of people to "get
good." Apparently undoing the "blue meanies," and their mediocrity of regimented idiocy, was what John Lennon wanted to do. The media was not
necessarily music, but it was doing the same things that made his music pleasing and well done, and to apply it to a public warning about war. War is
probably the largest induced mediocrity in world history, and that is an understatement. Nonetheless doing your best and reaching special moments
appears to be a prime motivating factor to human existence and that happens mostly in the arts, but as well in the sciences.
The must be a great deal to learn here. War is an adrenalin induced illusion of achievement, cheap thrills on a massive scale, and denial as it
happens. The genuine special moment is reduced to sheer survival while others die all around you.
Hey think about JFK, and his mission of peace towards the end. JFK told gobbly gook State Department people to "be clear in their language," from
the beginning. Apparently they were doing their job too well, until the highly mediocre polemicist control freak LBJ took over.
Well yeah there seems to be a conspiracy of people who know of few ways other than violence or the violence of polemics to make their fortune. Keep
guard, and keep vigilant.
