The Polarization of Humanity
This concept is broad and over-burdensome to the thought-process that refuses to look at the trees as a forest. Anyone’s mid-set can fluctuate a
consideration of both spectrums, however it is my belief that they belong to only one of the spectrum points.
I am going to only post two major examples of this concept, and hopefully within those storylines you may extrapolate the trend in which I am
In the Bible, when GOD destroyed the Tower of Babylon, he sent mankind to all corners of the Earth with different languages. He said that if they all
spoke the same, they will be able to conquer any obstacle, including building a tower that touched the heavens. You may not believe this bible story,
but use it as a reference nonetheless if the conceptual subject doesn’t take from my examples.
It is my assertion that the mind may have it’s own polarity, just as celestial bodies in the heavens. I see these differences as being positive
based, and negative base. And in an attempt to strip some of the negative connotation from the word “negative.” Let’s say positive/optimistic
– cynical/pessimistic. However, cynics would prefer realist.
Nonetheless, each human has a base of one of these two spectrums. Now, an evolved and intelligent pessimist will be able to out debate an
unintelligent optimist. What makes matters worse, is that there is a spectrum within each of these spectrums. This makes for a convoluted consensus.
And also inspires clichés like “Ignorance is Bliss.”
“An optimist will find opportunity in any obstacle, a pessimist will find obstacles in any opportunity.”
And with this difference comes differences. Everything polarizes from this base.
– One side only saw benefit from Slavery while the other side fixated on the indecency of the endeavor. The North and South came
to have many other differences because of their polarization, and conflict was inevitable. Why did the South not see the indecency then when they see
it now? Almost a Million Americans died in that difference of perspective. The same goes for women’s rights, civil rights, etc.
– The GOP & DEMS are so different in policy it is ridiculous at times. One side sees a necessary war that should be fought
somewhere else rather than here. While the other side believes otherwise, that no war is necessary if we don’t provoke it. Now remember that
within these sides there is a very paramount circumstance, and that is intelligence. And the smartest men on both sides use it’s own ignorant base
to do their bidding. Danger comes when men base opinions of aggression on limited information.
Perhaps GOD intended that all growth/change is to be inspired by this fundamental conflict?
So the question remains, what do we do about this fundamental obstacle?
