Here in the dark days of the Kali Yuga I have noticed the term conspiracy is almost standard fare. It doesn’t seem to matter which type social media you engage in at any particular time. Many times people will refer to something they are unfamiliar with as a conspiracy as a reaction to deflect from their own intellectual inertia. To be honest those who have formed their world with values found in high school text books and the electronic media will be found mostly unreachable. If they have not spent decades reading books that were not on the New York Time’s best seller list and gravitated from there to alternative media with the advent of the internet, I have found you will simply be wasting your time attempting any type meaningful discussion. At this point they are like a separate species. It is easier to categorize than explore, much easier to believe than to know.
The times we are in remind me of Carlos Castaneda and the separate reality. To be frank our movers and shakers, the corporate web that buys our politicians do not want an informed electorate or citizenry. Semi illiterate masses that believe every foreign war is fought for freedom and the American way no matter who is attacked is much easier to govern. Unfortunately such a citizenry carries the seeds of it’s own destruction. We saw this in Germany but the spin in America varies somewhat as we believe in corporate fascism and a foreign controlled federal reserve as the be all and end all. It is democrat vs republican, conservative vs liberal 24/7 in a never ending ping pong match that goes nowhere while the country is continues to be looted.
The Borderline idiot will always see the world as some sort of gigantic conspiracy. They say the dumber you are the more conspiratorial things may seem, so in many cases the participants may be asked to step outside their intellectual comfort zone.
Generally speaking a conspiracy is a theory not substantiated by facts, not to be confused with a concept one disagrees with and worse yet one in which he is too unmotivated to explore for himself. Conspiracy unfortunately is an over used cliche many hide behind to mask their unfamiliarity with sometimes complex subjects or dodge a weighty issue they feel uncomfortable discussing. There are very few conspiracies, simply issues we may not yet be aware of.
Some use it to mask their lack of intellectual resolve and some do so due to their personal involvement or own moral weakness as a result of not speaking out on certain issues which cause them pangs of guilt. A case in point might be one who has himself just finished an aspartame laced cola. It is better to call it a conspiracy than to admit such a chemical is indeed a low cost neurotoxin and used in many insect killers than to face the fact that the U.N. has called for a 90% reduction in the world population.
Some however may be directly or indirectly involved in certain conspiracies and seek to stifle debate on such matters. This could range to everything from employees of cellphone companies, sugar substitutes, Monosodium glutamate, GMO modified foods, media enforcers, fluoride manufacturers, nuclear energy companies, politicians, vaccine makers etc.etc. All of these have the ability to cause you unmentionable suffering but may well seem like a conspiracy to the uninformed. For instance Bill Gates advocates a 90% reduction in the world population, he buys a major vaccine company. (Boom) This man has reservations in Norway’s doomsday seed vault. Now this is a red flag to those of us with finely tuned knowledge of socio-political situations. Unfortunately we cannot ask the masses to join us in this highly complex field of intellectual endeavor. It would take certain capabilities in logic 101 and other disciplines far beyond the scope of the every day social media.
It could also apply to football conferences where some entities perceive a certain advantage by simply failing to note obvious interference by referees, preferring to label such thought as a conspiracy. The very thought that money can influence many to abandon their moral compass is unsettling to some.
A conspiracy is not a complicated issue, simply two or more people joining together in an effort to bring about a desired result. The attempt consciously or unconsciously to avoid and repress intellectual debate on some topics is of and itself a conspiracy in which some are even un-knowlingly engaged in with others, leading to the dumbing down of the top of the mushroom pile. There will always be a certain percentage of the audience who leave the fray when the “conspiracy” canard is tossed out. Others will recognize it for what it is. It is a bit like football, you just have to start hitting somebody in the mouth.
We have a moral duty not to allow the intellectually inferior to label everything a conspiracy. Civil discourse and the search for truth hang in the balance. Those who would deny you information already consider themselves your master. It is a question of intellectual harmonics.
The old adage that truth is in the eye of the beholder comes to mind here. What seems apparent to one may seem complicated to another. Many times it is simply a case of what we might term intellectual harmonics. As we acquire knowledge and facts somethings appear as intrinsically needless to debate. For others further down the scale they seem perplexing and these intellects often insist upon a Fox News broadcast or link to justify their validity. Others who are forcefully confronted by facts they should have known lash out in in vindictive terms in a very unbecoming manner.
In modern day terminology I think it compares with examples of the slow learner holding back the class. Imagine yourself trying to explain to say a spider monkey that two and two equals four. Most of us have already accepted this as reality, however the spider monkey if he could even fathom what you were saying would view this as some gigantic conspiracy being thrust upon him.
I have heard many use the term well that is just your opinion, everybody has one. It is obvious that such a person has little or no exposure to Logic 101. It is really quite simple, some may hold the view that 1 plus 1 equals 5, some may feel that 2 plus 2 equals 5, etc etc. However one may feel that 2 plus 3 equals 5. In this particular instance it is not an opinion it is a fact. This is what we are looking for.
If we look at for instance Buddhist doctrine, they feel that a particular entity or spirit may have many incarnations and thus may possess a large pool of gnostic knowledge at their disposal which emanates from a type of inner light of the spirit to keep things simple. On the other hand some may have been a bird in their last lifetime and mask their short comings by simply using the term wrong link dude or conspiracy. It is a doctrine worth looking into in my estimation.
Now this brings us to an entirely different equation in the cosmic “conspiracy” the subject of religion which I have already expounded upon.
What did Jesus really say? The Essene Gospel is very clear, two copies survived, one is locked away in the Vatican and one turned up in the Austrian museum much to their chagrin. It reads like Buddhist doctrine.
This much maligned and confusing subject known as religion is taken from the Greek and means roughly, pathway to truth. It takes a myriad of forms. I have determined the crux of the matter involves whether one is trying to uplift humanity or simply trying to reinforce one various hierarchy or the other. Most of the of the prevailing doctrines I am afraid are simply control constructs. One of the great quotes I have stumbled upon in my travels however rests above the Potala in Tibet, it reads, “A thousand monks, a thousand different religions.” This represents true freedom and depth of thought.
I rest secure in believing there is a universal mind that knows and records our intentions and most intimate thoughts and is capable of dispensing divine justice, however most likely not in the time frame we would like. Should you disagree, feel free to point out that I “have the wrong link dude!”
If you stare only at the hole, you will miss the doughnut.
Those who represent an ideal beyond the comprehension of the masses must face the persecution of the unthinking multitude who are without the divine idealism which inspires progress and those rational faculties which unerringly sift truth from falsehood.
Sometime around 23 hundred years ago we see in the Mahabharata Ydhishthira has a vision of the age to come: I see the coming of another age, where barbaric kings rule over a vicious, broken world, where puny, fearful men live tiny lives, white hair at sixteen, copulating with animals, their women perfect whores, making love with greedy mouths. The cows dry, trees stunted, no more flowers, no more purity, ambition, corruption, the age of Kali, the black time.”
