My logic is pretty top notch
Isn't that Ego talking, friend?
Good post in any case. I too am a Seeker of Knowledge, and look for Information everywhere,
not just in one area of study. I have a set of
rules to live by when it comes to Intel:
Trust no one, and assume everything is a lie until proven true.
When a "Fact," comes to light, be it hard, soft, or theoretical, I look for
three different avenues, or, areas of study to confirm.
I get really frustrated with stupid people. I feel that I have a right to be condescending to people that just parrot what others say, argue
things they are completely ignorant about, or tap dance around well-made points & logic. My purpose for debate is not to convince them because it is
almost impossible to convince someone of something they feel strongly against. That is a decision they have to make on their own.
I hear that. I have no problem with Ignorance, ignorant people can be taught, and some are willing to learn, some are even eager to learn. Stupidity,
however, is a chosen life path. A Stupid person does not wish to learn, and is secure that they know everything already. You can't fix stupid.
I feel compelled to seek out information. This is hard to explain, but there it is, I cannot help myself, I have to learn new things, almost every
day. From any source, I do not automatically discount a source just because someone has labelled it as evil, or dark. A good percentage of my
information comes from off-world sources. This is why I am so against these fundamentals who call ETs demons, and say they are evil, and lie to
everyone. This is just not so, the things I have been taught aren't lies, most was designed as my education, and this helped me to have a successful
career and a working knowledge of a great many machines. Even today, my meagre income is supplemented by an education not from books, but from another
source. Were is an evil source, I would not be able to use it in a positive manner.
Now many people are more than eager to inform me that my information is just wrong. This comes out frequently in the religious threads. To some if you
think different from them, you are crazy/on drugs/satanic/demon inspired and there is no help for you. This is because in my areas of study are
varied, and sometimes I go on a tangent. My deep education on Christianity stemmed from an interest in the Grail Legends. More than 10 years was spent
in the study of everything concerning these matters, and I followed many paths that went off in other directions. The deeper I got, the more I was
able to see that most of it is just made up by the Church. I have to hand it to the Church, they surely must have had help to be able to mind control
and dumb down so many generations. Money, Power, and Greed are what runs the Church. But it's members cannot, or will not see this. Say anything
about the Established Institutions of Thought and you get a label. Your opinions are not welcome, and have no value whatsoever.
I think what we all need to do is rise above the petty politics and religions, but everyone cannot wrap their minds around that. I think we all need
to learn how to, and get ready to Ascend to a Higher Dimension. Some are not ready for that, and would rather stay here on a dying world. Some do not
agree with this at all, and say this is all "New Age" talk, and not to be believed.
Society idolizes intellect. Albert Einstein, Nicoli Tesla, Aristole, Spinoza, Mozart, and Bach were all praised for their genius. Edgar Allan Poe,
Thomas Paine, Leonardo da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, and Alexander the Great, are not idolized. The evil genius doesn't start out evil - they become
that way over time. Those with more active brain cells are usually labelled as "doesn't play well with other kids." If you are different enough in
the way you think to be classed as a genius, you won't fit in and you're basically going to get a whole lot of crap, and/or negativity if you will,
thrown at you from an early age. Parents, and other authority figures might be dismayed, ashamed, disgusted and resentful of their "peculiar
offspring," the kid who is smarter than they are, and knows it.
Knowledge is power. The less
rationally, logically, intelligent, and critical thinking a person happens to be, the more subjective, fear-based
and superstitious the person is, which makes sense, and they operate from a more primitive level related to response to power. The less we know, the
more we fear. Fear drives a Power, but not the one within us. The Inner Power is driven by Knowledge and Wisdom.
Sorry I went so long. Cheers.
