The Confines of Modern Man's ... Primitive Mind
Confine- a. to keep within bounds;restrict
b. to shut or keep in espicially to imprison
c. to restrict in movement
Words are the defining confines of our thoughts.For Instance, take a moment and try to think about something,anything without your "words" describing it. For most even the concept is bizarre, but then even the symbolism should be... well just that, a total image-experience of the symbol (the mountian you see with your eyes and the experience in your mind )and not subjugated by "words".
So why then are there words? probably for things like talking,warning,art,communication... come to mind, but thats really the after effect of the thought or feeling.
Where does the origination for words come from? Well it all starts with the L.A.D.(language acquisition device) in our brains according to Noam Chomsky,linguist at MIT. Children have this innate ability to set perameters and deduce the grammatical principles when exposed to language. I also think any type of communicative connectiveness too can be absorbed or reflected in that with interactions with pets or trees or any type of relationship where the"individual"(from atoms to elephants and beyond) can connect to something else to whatever degree is also part of this L.A.D. I don't think its just built for language but for communicative concepts. So we are born with these innate abilities for understanding and interaction. On the clean slate of birth with just its innate fundamentals we start to condition ourselves, or be conditioned,absorb information or have it administered . The tug and pull keeps us at a constant war within ourselves.
"to be or not to be"
It is easy, almost too easy to think about how far we as humans have come in the past 1000 years,or rather even a hundred years,even Ten years. How "Smart" we are, How Much civilisation there is or how civilised our minds have become. Please take a second to think about this, civilisation is distiguished by people who live in "cities" and get there food from agriculture. Since 1388 the word "civilisation" has meant "law which makes a criminal process civil" and in 1704 it also meant the opposite of barbarity.
I argue that there is no such law(s). A law is something that is understood as a rule and concerns behavior and the appropiate consequences there of. If you take the human significance out of this equation ,then a good example beyond "words" is that gravity is a law, space ,& time for whatever proposed reality tehre is on the planet of in the universe. Our bodies understand these rules beyond our descriptions with words and civilised laws and hear say from the Jerry Springer Show,Fox news, Fear Factor.(NPR is o.k. though, 90.7 fm) If i throw a rock on planet earth, eventually it will find its way back onto the ground through the means of circumstance and gravity.
And what they call barbarity, which could be constituted as the opposite of civilisation would be ; Band societies, in which people live in nomadic or semi- nomadic groups and tribal societies. They usually subsist by hunting,gathering,small horticultural gardens,and fishing.They are more egalitarian,where decision making structures are less formal and power is more evenly shared.(wikipedia.org.civilisation) I am a barbarian.
Civilisation is also characterized by a social elite w/status inherited such as in Jello Biafras spoken word when he says," Why is it that senators are senator sons, of senators sons,of senators sons etc?" Its not that this is an interesting question but that since its so interesting,how come it never comes up?.Our minds after being man handled by false hoods riding on top of genuine innate characteristics are manipulated by words for control, conquest,and power. When JFK was asked why anyone would want to be president , he said "Power".(C-Span segment on how the press secretary's job has evolved since Lynden Johnson was pres.)
These false hoods can be summed up in what is called "Necessary Illusions". Heres how the Elite manufacture consent from the masses and what the Agenda/World Order is about."Most western democracies have not achieved the U.S. system of one political party, with two factions controlled by shifting segments of the business community". I remember Ralph Nader mentioning this in speeches he gave, but it didnt get absorbed because on most tv stations and radio broadcast in all controlled media. (pg 10 of Necessary Illusions,Chomsky) "Intellectuals are the primary targets of the manufacturing of consent, the public mostly just cares what their view is",not sound bites from Nader and then hour long news shows talking about how crazy he is for running at all when there basic message was winning is everything and only two teams can play in the Super Bowl of Bussiness as Usual.
In the state of things in our classroom and abroad through-out democracy i feel i should offer this also."Across the broad spectrum of articulate opinion, the fact that the voice of the people is heard in democratic societies is considered a problem to be overcome by ensuring that the public voice speaks the right words"(pg 19 Necessary Illusions)."The media serve the interest of state and corporate power,which are closely interlinked,framing their reporting and analysis in a manner supportive of established privelege and limiting debate and discussion accordingly.(pg 10 of Necessary Illusions,Chomsky,book).
Edward Bernays has stated that the task of the corporations through the media "is too control the public mind". The trickle down theory i think would apply better to this than to economics.
The Potential of the Primitive Mind
So if the illusion of mans mind is confined to this primitive state of being, as a pet is subservient to its "Owners". Then where is Modern Mans potential at? Where is the Key to escape from his cages?
Upon breaking down the theatrical horror we have unknowingly accepted all these years in what has become our lives(like dominos they fall with thud). We now know that the hardest part isn't unlocking the cage, but to a take step out.
Taking a step out here, becoming part of the world again is great! Although its feared, its in all actuality alot less dangerous then civilisation. Daniel Quinn writes about it in his book "Ishmael", but its obvious he got it from other people who have said it like Jane Goodall or Romain Baertsoen who have lived amongnst other animals(Chimpanzees and Gorillas) who cared enough to accept them as part of their family.
To give you an idea of the basic concept pertaining to the entire vast Situation.
i would like to bring in Religion and science and how a new concept should be sweeping through in what one could call evolution. (This is what the Elite is trying to stop or take control of).
This Out/Insight coinciding with every thought we've ever had will be overhauled and hopefully resetting all disfunct programs built upon our innate beginnings will be used as a catalyst to rise above the confines of manufactured consent,and double speak word trivia of these necessary illusions.
If people start thinking that everything that is going on is an extension of themselves. Then they'll start caring and worse yet, questioning and thats a problem if they are questioning about things that have a potential for making alot of GNP, like trees,the air(pollution),animals(don't be fooled ,they do have feelings), or even God. Its not that we'll all be anarchist,its that we will be thinking outside of their neatly constructed box. "the only thing we have to Fear is fear itself"MLK, makes so much sense doesn't it.Control.
"When Sri Bhagavan was 3 years old ,his experience then was that the whole universe was an extension of himself".( Onenessuniversity.org) Scienctist have stated that the energy in our bodies runs like that of a house, but besides running through wires or through our bodies nerves,synapses,organs,etc..it also resonates outward into infinity such as the orbits of atoms do. Just as our bodies resonate outward,they seem to resonate inward also in what David Bohm Suggest that there may be an infinite series of implicate orders, each having both a matter aspect and a conscious aspect, "Everything material is also mental and everything mental is also material,but there are many more infinitely subtle levels of matter than we are Aware of". this is what he refers to as the implicate domain or an extended form of materialism ," It could equally well be called idealism, spirit,consciouness, The seperation of the two matter & spirit is an abstraction.The ground is always One".
(ourworld.compuserve.com) Mae-Wan Ho's theory of Quantum Coherence, his ideal states that the "organism is a quantum superposition of coherent activities ,with instantaneous(nonLocal) noiseless intercommunication". This gives explanation to when people say the same things at the same time, or when you think of someone and they call you.They are figuring out that our brains operate on a conscious level of wave collapse and in a reality of another dimension where time and space are not bound by the same rules that our universe is bound by. We are living and conscious of more then one reality. We are taught to ignore this or not taught about it at all. Its called Quantum nonlocality which was first published by Einstein Polosky,and Rosen in 1935. Quantum non locality is when one seperate physical system is affected by another with out being connected and also instantly at a subatomic level. Its not faster then the speed of light, rather that its not limited by the speed of lights reality.
Our minds operate at this time/space reality and also at a subatomic reality where distance is irrelevent, and instantaneous communication is probably abundant, but we look right over this concept like we are supposed too, as told by the distraction(s) of everyday life.Nature has shown us that our concept of separate units(tree,cat,worm,dog,feces)is fundamentally wrong!
Arguements and Conclusion
I think seperation only exist in the mind, in our thoughts and if we thought less like that, we would be more conscious of the state ourself. The trouble is this tapping into what our bodies are already tapping into is obstructed by how we think about things. Our concepts are proving to be more damaging then good. I always thought Philosophy was about finding the truth and then i discovered it was about creating the truth (lie). With Kants "What Is" vs. "What OUghtta Be". Its seems that alot of philosophers that were famous and gained notority really had a narrow scope of mind, of vision. I had Really hoped for more, alot more through out the ages, i hoped that the rest of the world was trying to catch up, but instead people have been more clamped down upon because of it, i have a real problem with this.
. Thank God for Nietzche though! I wonder if he wrote the way he did so he could get away with thinking so far out of the box.
"What Oughhta be", is a lie from its basic origin. It isn't even relevant to anything except power,control,and dominion which are illusions.
The most damaging fact about "what Oughtta be" is that it is what our scope of
reality is based on. It is what most of our mainstream teachings are about.
Its what keeps us locked in our cages.
It seems that whenever someone has a new discovery , or insight, its controlled and catergorized and all the essense of the discovery is destroyed.Even in daily life when people go on and on about describing something to make someone think a certian way(like them) about something, i think they are truly robbing the person of the experience.Theres the experience, and then there is the dissection of labels ,words and catergories, what if we started instantly communicating the whole entire experience, it would be less manipulated and lie excessive.
These concepts mentioned above (instant connectedness and quantum non locality), should be taught in schools. I mean they really arent hard to coceptualize even for probably a forth grader, just add some imagination in there. Actually all thse ideas arent hard to understand, its just that you have to specify in a certian field so you can really think partially un-obstructed by the "powers that be" of control. Everything is so easy to understand, and its so far from the mainstream realm of thought...when the only thing you forsake or loose thinking "that way to this way" is your illusions (rent INSTINCT). And That is a healthy thing.
thought processing to destroy mode. (the closing statement)
"We" the destroyers
live in a world of illusion,
based on lies handed down to us through-out the ages, but espicially since the industrial revolution where people started really questioning God and then the Printing press at the same time administered Anxiety techinques to mask the once Strong Lie(God). Please don't forget the effects of WW2 and the Military Industrial Complex's seizure of the direction of things to come.
an Original thought is said to be hard to achieve.
This is milarchy!
Our conditioning programs are so thorough that that thought is doing what it is supposed to be doing:Projecting a condition of mind to not question the foundation or fundamentals of the Structure of Power and Control.
Since things can only be thought so far in the programmed reality(lie,illusion,of individual),
there is an evolution of mind to think according to the greater picture, thats if you let it happen and not fall prey to the preying claws of dissection and labelling.
All these answers in books,speeches,rhetoric, i believe are missing one fundamental element.
A way out.
Science will protect your findings but it will also give fuel to the concept of control.
So the only way to think originally is to think "outside the box",
with out words, without normal concepts.
changing the basis of our personalilty plates way back at its early stages.
Changing Concepts of God, of science...
a complete over haul of the entire system through normal evolution projection of when we start focusing on progression through unlearning.
I would like to end this if such a concept exist:
we are one
we are nothing
we are everything
