Hi how are you,
I'm good thanks
As an individual I have never been concerned with reality. I spent my first 22 years of life denying that there was any meaning in the world. I grew
up in a home broken by mental illness, pillaged by television; I was left empty, with a deep hatred for everything around me. From religion, to law,
to science, to government. There has been nothing sacred in my life.
There is nothing in my possession that has any value; except the one tool that we are all given. In the last semester at University I learned so much
more than just the topics at hand; I learned that the world exists no matter how badly I want to deny it. I learned that people suffer for all the
choices we make. I learned that even though we have so much; our people really have so little; I have watched my friends struggle with the depression
and anxiety of modernity as I have too. Only I have found a path to walk that leads me away from denial and into the beauty that is truth. Every
action we make has significant consequences, and we can not be willfully ignorant to them, as that is to choose to live in the anxious unfulfilling
plasticity that is corporate owned reality. It is hard to believe that my life is hard, because it isn’t. Much like physics suggests that when our
eyes are not watching, atoms are free to vibrate in the air; I realize that I am able to live by that too, no one is watching me; I have the freedom
to do whatever I want, until I draw attention to myself. I am so privileged but I have chosen to squander that privilege because I never saw anything
My own independent research guided by sociology has brought me new knowledge and understanding, even some wisdom. I know that the only thing that is
black and white in this world is that there is people who have; and people who have not. That people suffer, some more so than others. It matters not
what crimes man commits, because those crimes only exist if we recognize them. When we recognize them we try to rule them; and to try to control a
problem only creates more problems. It is better to be ignorant to the lows that people need to sink too; whether for survival or because of other
emotions. It matters not, what matters is making a world with less reasons to need to rely on the watchful eye, we need ignorance to ourselves,
because the self is hypocritical; and to allow society to point out our flaws and offer solutions is wrong. Only we can change ourselves, no one can
force us to change. We can give others the opportunity to change; we can give them the knowledge to help them into life. But we must not watch them.
We must not feed them, we must not shape them, but we must and can free them.
Freedom defines truth and only when people are truly free do they see what is true. I am free of everything society holds sacred, yet I do not know
what is true, except that corporations hold too much political power, and that rationality is quickly leading us into immortality. I do not believe
that intelligence exists; I do not believe that gender exists; I do not believe that race exists. I believe that we are one sum of energy linked to
all others to bring the total sum to 0. I know we are on a road that leads to more mistakes, advertising is a mistake. Money is a mistake. Narcissism
is the biggest mistake. To believe I am above anything is the biggest mistake I can make, as it is a delusion, superiority and power is linked to
There is no man on Earth less than I, or greater. To stand on the shoulders of giants is to be lifted by none other than my brother. My equal, not my
authority, not my trainer. Education is not too train workers for the machine, and I could spend my entire life being a student of the world if it
didn’t surely mean my own starvation. I have been lost in a world of technology and an abundance of information; but the information was going on
ignored; even when it smacks you right in the face there is this implicit denial, this will to believe that we have solved everything and that we need
not worry; all we need is a job.
Are nothing but representations of one truth; and it can never show you the whole truth. Especially if you don't understand the statistics you're
looking at. Every one knows that unemployment statistics are 'fudged'; in that they only account for certain types of unemployed people (usually
ones actively searching for work). There are other statistics that lie to us; there are ways to see through the lies; I shall give you one example in
this thread of blatant statistical propaganda.
Alright, surely you can tell something just from looking at this graph (as if the image name doesn't hint something). Here's some important
information when looking at ANY graph like this:
"In probability theory, the normal (or Gaussian) distribution is a continuous probability distribution, defined on the entire real line. It has a
bell-shaped probability density function, known as the Gaussian function or informally as the bell curve:[nb 1]" -wikipedia
Notice that the white distribution is far closer to a bell curve; and that the black distribution is all over the place. The only logical conclusion
one can draw from this is that people have not reached their peak in IQ; especially black people. I am not here to talk about why; merely to point out
that statistics misrepresent facts very easily. Black people aren't just genetically stupid; if they were they wouldn't be capable of having 130
IQs. The distribution would be far more standard if people had achieved their peak.
"Data can be "distributed" (spread out) in different ways. It can be spread out more on the left ... or more on the right. Or it can be all jumbled
up. But there are many cases where the data tends to be around a central value with no bias left or right, and it gets close to a "Normal
There are several reasons data can be skewed (www.squidoo.com...
). It could be as simple as IQ
not being a valid enough measurement (because certain cultures have different ideas on intellect). It could be as simple as black people not receiving
the proper education, or social constructs that guide them away from learning. It is clear that the data is skewed to the right; this could be because
there wasn't a big enough sample taken; but I'm sure even if you sampled every African American's IQ there would be similar results (some black
people are motivated to succeed in the system).
To summarize; statistics have agendas too. If you ever want to base your opinion on statistics make sure you know what those statistics mean. The last
thing the world needs is validation for their ignorance.
