LordD... fascinating. I wonder what made him think otherwise? Perhaps the "push" did it?
See this is what is so bothersome about "Pushing" and "Pulling." There is no "Mean" or "Median" which gives people an unbiased area to think and rationalize the truth. That's exactly the problem with being "outliers" or "extremes" because neither extreme allows a person to be neutral to view all the choices and topics and logically arrive at a valid conclusion and thus a valid argument to what to believe and whom to believe-in.
This is where social validation succeeds and where social invalidation fails. Ironically, where most religions fail or succeed in allowing a person to retain their free-will. If you pressure a person, they are not going to be able to rationalize but feel the emotion of "pressure" and move toward a homeostatic position of neutrality. It's an uncomfortable feeling the be the odd-man out. Why Althene's Theory of Everything is so important. Everyone wants to belong, and no one wants to feel desolate and alone. Some can cope, some cannot and do horrible things to themselves and others.
This must change. Now that we know the truth or at least can see the "tip of the iceberg" of the truth, we can start to change our world for the better. All of the things which are negative about humanity can start to be resolved and all things positive about humanity can start to be rrealized, but first we'll need to be brutally honest with each other and ourselves. Then tackle the harder problems, but the rest is really the easy problems, with ourselves being the most-difficult. But when we see beyond ourselves and have empathy toward others by forgiving and accepting ourselves, that can change and it can change in a split-second.
Once we start USING those neural network pathways, we can start making them stronger and stronger by practicing our application of knowledge of the truth. It's actually so sublime and ridiculous compared to how we think now, but is the way to the start of a path to enlightenment. When this is done, all else will follow it.

An all-seeing eye at the top of a pyramid? The tip of the iceberg and ironically, it's shaped roughly in a pyramid shape with the water-line where the dividing-line is on the all seeing-eye on the dollar bill.
In this respect, it's much like John The Baptist, a man of G_d, baptizing Jesus and saying "He that is after me is preferred before me."
Or the crucifixion of Jesus literally, in the Bible, and then also we also crucify Jesus again, when we go-through him, to be closer to the Father or G_d. There is a back-story about how I came to perceive this, and the series of breadcrumbs of knowledge or wisdom being me being directed at what to read, what to note, etc.
It does say in the Bible, that Jesus kept those who believed in his name for G_d, save one, which either is himself (this is another bit to chew-on later,) and I kinda see this as a fail-safe like saying we leave no one behind except ourselves, or in Jesus case himself.
When we make that step from Jesus to G_d, we are figuratively crucifying him, and in reality the human race must do this to all religions and ideologies to accept and be able to recognize what is true and what is not truth in this world. Or it will be forever mired down in all the negatives of the universe with no light, love or hope, any of the positive aspects of what we are to be as an Image of G_d. The potential is there, we just have to "re-make" ourselves into that "Perfect Image" or more-perfect image by refining ourselves like silver as in my SilverSmith analogy.
So we see there's the two steps which equals a third and that is truth. There's the 3 sides of the pyramid and no matter which way you turn us, it's the same, since it's all true. If you see something wrong, just keep refining it with proof and reproof, until you know it's true.
Like Astronomy and Astrology. I know there are aspects of these two disciplines which are true, some not by omission, some just plainly incomplete. But combined yields a third interpretation or a more-perfect image, which is truth.
It's all light.
To tell you a secret, light and sound are much in the same, it's just our "GAP" between the sense of vision and the sense of hearing, which makes it appear to be two separate things. Sound is just slower or "down-converted" via the "Sensory Gap." We interpret it as two things. It's not.
Can you begin to see the inference I am presenting, with no bias or preaching, just allowing you to be able to decide for yourselves by presenting information arranged in a way where it's easy to see w/out bias.
Anyway you turn it...
I really like that. I never seen put into perspective like that, but that all depends on if we have the same path if our paths are different then what we should study or how we should go about life will differ. I believe their are some universal truths but as a 'being' theirs only perspective. Your truth could very well be true but it could be different from my truth which could also be true. We are inherently different from every human being so theirs bound to be different pyramids.edit on 23-8-2012 by LordD because: wrong placing of words
