Why our World is a Prison Planet
Here is the reason why this world of ours is a prison planet: Our bodies.
Yes, that is right. The answer is our bodies. Let me explain...
Our bodies need food, clothing, clean water, shelter, transportation, and many other things.
In this world, nobody is free, because everybody needs these things - every day.
So you need all these things, but what can you offer in return?
To get all these things, all you can offer, is your time and effort.
This is true for most people, and therefore, they are not free.
Because everybody needs the necessities listed above, (and because these are not just freely available everywhere you look), we have
competition amongst people.
And because of the competition amongst people, we get nasty things like back-stabbing, exploitation, different social classes, and things like
monopolies, to name just a few. All these are mechanisms that work against somebody's freedom.
Now, let us talk about rich people for a moment, ...because maybe you think that this line of reasoning does not apply to rich people.
Rich people can just buy everything they need, but they are also not truely free.
Even rich people have to worry about harm coming to their bodies.
They are not immune against illness.
They are not immune against the loss of a loved one.
Some rich people worry about losing what they own. If you have any type of worry, you are not free.
Even rich people age, and will not live forever. They may be worried about getting older.
So, my conclusion is this:
We will only be free if we don't have bodies.
In other words, you need to be something like a true spirit being.
Without a physical body, you can go wherever you want to go, without worrying about the need for shelter, food, etc.
Without a body, you will not feel the cold. You will not feel hunger, or thirst.
Without a body, you will not need a place to rest, a place to call home.
Without a body, no harm can come to you. How can you harm a spirit being anyway?
Without a body, you cannot age and decay, like a physical body does. And therefore, you will not worry about this anymore.
Without a body, you will not have the need for any possessions. And therefore, you will also not worry about losing your possessions.
As far as I can see, this is the only way to achieve true freedom.
