[thoughts from ~burning woman~ by Sha’Tara]
Let’s begin with death. “What is death?” Perhaps that is not quite the right question to ask. Perhaps a better question would be, “What is it that dies?”
If you reduce any collective entity to its individual components – to its particles of light, of energy, does it still die? What if the “memory” of the entity that “died” was now carried by its scattered particles? Hopefully I’ll get to that when discussing the concept of mind.
Death is a coming apart of a collective. Therefore only a collective can experience death. Death is the scattering of the individual parts of any collective. As long as collectives have the power to call individual particles to themselves to feed themselves, they can overcome some the effects of time, the erosion that time imposes on everything it controls. When its individual components can no longer supply its growing needs for converted energy, it begins to disintegrate at an increasing rate. It literally dissolves. That’s called entropy. It’s also called “limits to growth” where a collective has surpassed the capacity of its environment to keep it alive. Many believe now, or can see, that man has reached this point on this planet.
Perhaps I could think of entropic process as life’s sluice gate, to flush out overgrown and destructive collectives, from universes (the largest we can “know”) and down to our own bodies and smaller so the greater (cosmic) process can develop as life intends or so individuals can regain the freedom lost to collectives. Individuals seek freedom. Conversely collectives seek to constrain, to gather, to bring together in order to control, then to squeeze life from individual particles. In the great chess game played by collectives, they’re forever competing against each other and enslaving (called mergers) of other entities to “grow” the more powerful one.
Time, the bane of collectives, cannot control individual particles. Time cannot destroy or kill individual particles because these belong to life’s canvas of infinity. Death is the effect, the poison, of time upon collectives. That’s as simple as I can explain it to myself. (I am speaking here of the “time death” which is as artificial as time itself, affecting only collectives, not of natural death which is a fusing, transferring and reshaping through what I’d call the energetic flow, or flow of free energy. I sometimes think of it as re-formatting. That’s not death as such, just transformation. A collectively-minded entity will see it as death but a free entity will see it as a simple metamorphosis.)
There is another aspect that is not affected by time, and is also infinite and that is – mind. I believe everything is of mind and has a mind because everything through its individual members (particles) belongs to infinity, not to the realm of time. As well, no collective can exist without a mind. Collectives are self-aware to some degree, therefore not mindless. But the mind of the collective does not belong to it, nor does it emerge from it. The collective must somehow trap existing minds in order to claim legitimacy. Any collective of necessity it seems, can only have an artificial “mind” made up of individual minds it has enslaved to do its bidding. Therefore all collectives are predatory by nature.
Speaking of collectives, let’s consider the city. What is a city? What purpose does it serve? How does it not only remain together but grow? What feeds it the energy it needs to function? A city is a complete contradiction on a world such as this. This is a lush, natural world that calls for nature to express itself in the most wonderful and luxurious ways, both exotic and erotic in its freedom. But man for the most part has never made the effort to understand the nature of earth; never fell in love with it so as to go and live within it, unconstrained and free. In fact man declared long ago, from the appearance of Homo Sapiens Sapiens, that nature was his enemy. His “creator gods” commanded man to extend his rule over nature and subdue “her.”
So a dark, destructive, hate filled, murderous mind entered man’s collective thought and one of the results was the building of fortified cities which, being fed with enough human fodder have proliferated into megalopolises. Do these collectives serve humanity, or the elites? Well, just look at how the buildings grow, and who lives and operates in which: there’s your answer.
In the Hebrew sacred books we read that Cain, the first son of the first parents Adam and Eve, after murdering his brother in a fit of jealousy was “marked” by God so he would never be molested for his crime. Follow this if you will: Cain goes off to the land of “Nod” and builds a city.
Three things stand out:
ONE: The very first ruler of man was a murderer.
TWO: He becomes the first of the elites to be declared unaccountable for his crimes – by none other than God.
THREE: He builds a city, symbol of power over and against.
The die for humanity’s future is cast as in a divine forge. The pattern is set and indestructible – the forging of the ring of power that would rule all in the darkness of a dark mind, but who’s the Lord of the Ring of power? What’s behind the collective that keeps all forces of subversion, corruption, oppression and suppression so well fed and immune from judgment regardless of the terrible conditions it causes to exist in man’s world?
As we readily can see today, the collective mind that rules humanity on Earth, or Earthians as “my people” call them, is corrupt and evil. It is anti-life, thus explicably misogynist, and totalitarian in nature. How it gains its power is by ensnaring individual minds to do its bidding. It is made up of individual enslaved minds that serve the collective in the belief that an individual “has no chance” or “can’t make change” and therefore must “belong” to some form of ruling mind collective.
I just read an article by a blogger who rants against Donald Trump, fears him, hates him, excoriates him (which is fine by me, don’t get me wrong on that!) but closes by lambasting “third choice” voters. She says, if you vote for Jill Stein you are giving your vote to Donald Trump and it will be your fault if he gets in the White House. So you have to give your allegiance to one of two utterly Matrix-chosen despicable characters, by closing your own mind and believing against all evidence to the contrary that Hillary Clinton is a better choice for POTUS than the Donald. In other words, here’s another slave of the collective that says, don’t you dare exercise a free vote – we’ll blame you if things don’t go our way; it will be your fault for exercising your “conscience” vote. Such thinking ensures that the Matrix pawns always win when “popular” choice might just make a difference.
Earthian minds, through fear, hatred, and brainwashing from the crib on up, have been, and are, enslaved to a murderous belief system. Few are those left who understand the real concept of freedom of choice, decision making, and how to respond in self-empowerment to any and all conditions extant. The first thing an Earthian mind does when confronted with a problem is seek for a problem solver, in that’s where the Matrix holds all the cards.
Problem solvers, though a dime a dozen, as prolific as garbage, are very, very expensive. Doctors and hospitals, lawyers, insurance companies, politicians, bankers, police, shrinks, security guards, educational systems, prisons, counsellors, egotistical academics, the military, corporate CEO’s and their research scientists, lamestream media and its herds of presstitutes in short skirts and fancy suits and the M-Billionaires who speak for God. Got money? No? Well, we’ll mortgage your life and give you a solution to your problem.
YOU (pointing a carefully manicured finger in your face) cannot, EVER, seek that solution without coming to us. Any solution you try to apply on your own, whether it’s eating natural foods or smoking a joint, we’ll declare illegal. We’ll hunt down the source of your freedom and destroy it. We’ll search your homes and fridges for illegal substances and imprison you when we find it, and if we don’t like you, and we can’t find evidence to jail you, we’ll plant it, drug you so you won’t remember, and you WILL go to jail. You get me, sweetheart?
Why collectives are evil, why they always die: difficult concepts to mull through. Even more difficult to share with other intelligence. But in these times, such thoughts could prove salutary. Our “System” or collectives are, after all, dissolving before our very eyes…
All truths are within us and for these truths we seek within ourselves (The One Tree – Stephen Donaldson)
“The coming years will prove increasingly cynical and cruel. People will definitely not slip into oblivion while hugging each other. The final stages in the life of humanity will be marked by the monstrous war of all against all: the amount of suffering will be maximal.” Pentti Linkola, Can Life Prevail? http://journal-neo.org/2016/09/12/the-empire-of-mediocrity-and-the-end-of-the-world/
“Bring back normal, get our cable TV back no matter the cost, nuke whoever you have to, just give us our lives back!” You have to see the end of all this taking shape, I know you do. Putin attacked no one. Muslims are not the problem. Neither Republicanism nor Democratic stoicism will defend us from ourselves. Mediocrity cannot rule, but in the 21st century it can obliterate us all. I leave you with the root of our collective demise, the reason Obama or Clinton or Trump types enthrall the masses so: “Most of our pocket wisdom is conceived for the use of mediocre people, to discourage them from ambitious attempts, and generally console them in their mediocrity.” (Robert Louis Stevenson) Phil Butler is a policy investigator and analyst, a political scientist and expert on Eastern Europe, exclusively for the online magazine “New Eastern Outlook”. http://journal-neo.org/2016/09/12/the-empire-of-mediocrity-and-the-end-of-the-world/
There is always a heavy demand for fresh mediocrity. In every generation the least cultivated taste has the largest appetite. (Paul Gauguin)
I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen. ― J.G. Ballard, from “What I Believe.” Originally published in the French magazine Science Fiction, January 1984.
There is a certain clinical satisfaction in seeing just how bad things can get. — Sylvia Plath
