Ok firstly. This medium used is of the internet.
You have to bring into question what intellect is - though I find it highly important that children should read books and educate themselves, this is
not the end argument, it is simply a tool used to find a way for yourself rather than being pushed into a 'way'.
The only harm I see in media, through use of the internet, the Tv and other related sources, is that it gives conflicting information or information
used for a sole agenda. Not all companies are related to each other, but rather are together in one goal, for money and influence.
but if you see that as a demon there is also something wrong in all our thinking. Without modern society coming into play, we all from the beggining
of time craved a certain ammount of control over our realities, therefore each other, in order to calm our own fears about our fading out of
existence, and our desires not being met.
All people from poor to rich crave this control over their environments to block out bad stimuli. If you cannot handle it, get out of the kitchen.
A lot of books are all different, there are so many books on this earth that I can not say which one is of more value than the other, all things are
of value even if they lack truth. It is how you use this value to create your own reality.... Some books are created by people who have lonely minds
that want to influence others, some are based on a cult-agenda, and some people who claim to be truth-tellers are no such things whatsoever.
If our minds are becoming degenerated then you have to ask yourself what intelligence is, because is some case by bringing your 'point' to the table
you are saying that your intellect is on a higher level than others. You are playing a nasty and childish game by telling people to get off the
internet - it's irony, perhaps it teaches people, but if you are a hypocrite it teaches you nothing.
I am not going to get off the internet.
people are being brought into a world where they make sense of things based upon the status quo and what they only know, who they know, and the
influence of authority figures. Because we are losing Gods, we find other Gods and create icons - we look for a Original Source just like God, in
truth, in partnerships, in parental figures and this is all across the board.
If you want to find value the only value is yourself, as I have repeated many times, evolution tells you that supposed altruism is just another way of
manipulating for your own ends. It is your genes telling you to keep going on. Somehow 'because' of this concept, we 'view' self interest as
sinful or at least questionable, I believe this is a load of bull because if this is so, then there is nothing wrong with the natural order of things,
it is in fact all self love which is true.
Truth comes from self love and self trust, you, just like I, are looking for an external source whether imaginary or not, to somehow calm some kind of
motor in you that is driving you to say what you say.
There is another thing; if all culture is created from "madness", and all madness from manipulation and control whether via a direct result or not,
then what quality is there left of culture? If nothing is truth, then would you give up a whole life of only knowing TV, what they say nature and
evolution really is, entertainment of all kinds, whether through systems, leisure activities, poetry, literature, theatre, museums.
Would you burn all the books in the world to stop the traffic and pollution? Would you destroy your house, your income, your life, your business, your
work, your everything in order to prove a point?
Would you stop communicating with people who crave freedom out of a principle? Would you leave them to their own devices and go on in self absorption,
which is different from self love as you are reliant upon an ego which sees itself as seperate?
There is no such thing as intellgience. I use the word but maybe it should be 'insightful' instead.
