I just wanted to make this thread to talk about the levels of awareness of the world. I don't mean to talk about awareness- like in a psychological
sense, but, awareness as to if you're really aware of the rest of the world, if you're not, and all that stuff. I just wanted to share some of my
thoughts on the subject.
I think that awareness can be categorized into different levels. I've recently went through quite a few levels, and, I think I'm on the fourth
level of awareness. I'll give a list of what I see as the levels of awareness are.
Level 1 of awareness- your awakening. During this phase you've just decided that the world you knew was a lie. That TPTB are controlling things,
and, that there is a lot of truth to what conspiracy theorists say.
Level 2 of awareness- you disregard your old views. During this phase you shatter your old beliefs. Whatever conspiratorial views you've held you
disregard. You then go on a search for truth of your own.
Level 3 of awareness- You are a truth-seeker. You try to learn all different things about the world. You come to your own conclusions.
Level 4 of awareness- You find out what people say about the world. You understand what things are. You understand what people mean by what they
say. You can choose to agree or disagree with them.
Level 5 of awareness- You think back about how you were in step one. You then realize that these things that conspiracy theorists say should be
investigated more. You look up what they say, and, think about it... and then you come to a revelation about what they mean.
Level 6 of awareness- You choose what conspiracy theories to accept or reject, and, you can become an independent thinker.
Level 7 of awareness- You have reached more of an understanding of the world, you know why the world is a lie, and you are more aware of all the
propaganda that is in the world.
Level 8 of awareness- You know a lot. You have a lot of knowledge... and you can share that knowledge with other people. You have gone beyond the
learning phase... you don't just learn anymore... but now you know the specifics about the history of different conspiracy theories... and you can
tell others what's up.
Level 9 of awareness- You understand the power structure of the world. You know how it operates. You know how it keeps people in the dark. You
think back about yourself at all the previous levels of awareness you've been and hope that people see the light for how it really is.
Level 10 of awareness- You have truly awakened... and you understand all the previous levels of awareness... and you peel away at the realms of
reality and understand philosophy... and you know what different people will say, and, what they mean... you understand what they want, or, what they
think they want, what will happen to each other, and the consequences of different people's actions. You don't look at the world like you used
to... and it's tougher accepting this. A warning about being at this level- if you're at this level you can easily fall back and revert to a lower
level if you reject these philosophies, and, then you start back at the level 1 of awareness.
Those are the ten levels of awareness as I see it. I'm still between level 7 and level 9. You can be at different levels of awareness at different
times. And you can think you're aware but you're really not. That's what I call negative levels of awareness.
These negative levels of awareness are reverse awareness. I hope to help you identify with different levels of negative awareness you've been on
with your life. The list goes from least worst to the worst levels of awareness you could be at. I hope you can relate. These are all different
phases I've been through in my life before.
Level -1 of awareness- You think you're awake. You just accept these conspiracy theories at face value. You just parrot off of conspiracy
theorists hosts like David Icke and Alex Jones, without understanding what they say.
Level -2 of awareness- You're a sheep. You think that it's fun just living life and not caring about the rest of the world... you think it's okay
to not really understand what these things are. You just accept that the world is bad and think you've somehow won because of that.
Level -3 of awareness- You go on bothering people about how you think you're awake. You always tell people on different message boards that they
need to wake up. You don't see how different logic could be used to get people to your thinking. You also don't understand really what being awake
means... you just think it's cool to say it anyways.
Level -4 of awareness- You are a registered Democrat/Republican. You go on saying that you think your party has betrayed its principles and that the
other side has also betrayed their principles. You fail to see the real power structure behind both parties. And you don't really understand that
neither party is really against each other. You also tend to think that both parties have a different philosophy when it comes to foreign policy,
when, in reality they don't.
Level -5 of awareness- You are a party hack. You think that people of the other party are always wrong and the people of your party is always right.
This goes for any country- not just the USA.
Level -6 of awareness- You think anyone who doesn't share your point of view isn't aware. And you don't like their point of view.
Level -7 of awareness- You just accept whatever political pundits say without analyzing what they say critically. You don't think that they could
possibly be wrong. If people accuse the media of being liberally biased you just scoff at them, likewise, if they say it's conservatively biased you
just scoff at that idea.
Level -8 of awareness- You don't actually understand what conspiracy theories mean. You just like them because they sound cool. You talk about a
shadow government without understanding the meaning of the word shadow or what these things mean.
Level -9 of awareness- You are on fringe ideologies. You seem to think it's cool to be a radical leftist, an anarchist, or, a classic conservative,
or whatever. You just want to be different. You wish more people would like these ideologies.
Level -10 of awareness- You only look for selective bits of information that conform to your world view. You don't have definite views and you
don't take time to understand other sides. You don't know how to debate and you act really foolish with political arguments and you don't
understand what people mean by what they say. You just accept reality for what it is, and, you just don't care that it could be any other way.
Obviously party hacks are quite common in most places. Many of these party hacks don't realize the faults of their own parties.
The negative levels of awareness- are- meant to show different levels of awareness, where people aren't really aware but they think that other people
who believe differently than others.
It's hard to be aware all the time. I know these aren't all the levels of awareness out there. There are more out there. I know that. But these
are all that I could come up with. The others seem hypothetical to me because I haven't experienced them/observed them. There are two extremes for
levels of awareness though.
On one extreme for the positive level of awareness- you have the truth, you know the meaning of life, you try to make the best of life despite TPTB
trying to control your every move, and, you understand why people are in a constant trap.
On the extreme negative level of awareness- you are a complete fool, and, you just accept whatever the mainstream media tells you. You think that
one side is better than the other. And you also are playing their game. You love slogans. You think things in a simplistic manner. And you don't
understand how the world works or how TPTB works for that matter.
That's what I came up with. Feel free to add to the list of levels of awareness. What are your thoughts?
What do you think when you think of someone who is aware? What do you think when you think of someone who is unaware?
