People don't know what they don't know, I think. I like the original post. It speaks to me. The fact is there is infinite space in which to develop
perceptions and ideas, but people don't even know they are self-limited, much less that they are powerful within that "space". Most human minds are
pretty much the product of accumulation of reactions; reflexively developed in response to punishments and rewards over time. One of our strongest
cognitive faculties is the constant narrative generator that runs all day every day. It is responsible for telling the story of self and adapting
everything that happens in the world to fit that story. It is largely an unconscious process. This story of self is what people are protecting
whenever they find themselves resisting cosmology/religious ideas, ideologies, philosophies, or even interpretations of the world that are
irresolvable to a self-flattering narrative. People will claw, wail, moan, fight, and die in order to protect this narrative self, which is just a
product of imagination.
If you are a semi-conscious person, then you only know how to react to new ideas. You cannot easily generate new ideas - particularly about self and
your relationship to the world. NWO and other "theories" are structures that give a mind with very little loft some place to put certain feelings
and a rudimentary way to explain the world. Let's face it, folks, the average IQ is 100, and that means that NWO theory is actually mind-blowingly
amazing for some people. It's the best they can ever hope to achieve integration within the world beyond their line of sight.
