I watched one of Disney's Marvel TM offerings last night - the first time I've watched one, as it happens. Deadpool. Let me describe the storyline for you -

Deadpool elbows someone in the face, punches someone in the face, kicks someone in the face, smashes someones head into a screen, smashes someones head into someone else's head, throws someone out of a moving car to be dragged along behind, kicks someone in the head, strangles someone and breaks their neck, shoots someone in the leg, kicks someone out of a moving car into the path of a motorcyclist, punches the leg wound of the person he just shot in the leg, uses a hot car cigarette-lighter to burn someones face, puts the hot lighter into their screaming mouth and holds their mouth shut, cuts off someones head with a seatbelt, caused a car to crash throwing it's occupant into a road sign against which they literally splatted, shot one person in the head, shot another person in the head, shot another person in the head, shot another person in the head, shot a grenade in someones hand incinerating two persons, shot another person in the head - then shot the person (already dead) twice more in the body because he's got too many bullets left for what he has planned, shot three people in the head with a single bullet after lining himself up to do so, speared a person on two swords and then cut them in half, took a run-up to kick someone in the head, kicked someone in the head, kicked someone in the head, kicked someone in the head, kicked someone in the head, threw someone against a wall, kicked someone in the head, skewered someone through the chest with a sword, punched someone in the groin, punched someone in the face, threw a piece of metal into a defenceless persons face, punches someone in the face, punches someone in the groin, kicks someone in the head, kicks someone in the head, cuts his own arm off using a sharp knife.

There then follows an interlude of approximately ten minutes where Deadpool is tortured. I didn't watch this, as torture is really not my thing.

The movie then recommences;

Deadpool hits someone in the face with an iron bar, punches someone in the face, hits someone in the face with an iron bar, hits someone in the face with an iron bar, headbutts someone in the stomach, punches someone in the face, cuts someones hand off, punches someone in the face, shoots someone in the face, shoots someone in the face, shoots someone in the guts, shoots someone in the guts, knees someone in the face, stabs someone in the guts, punches someone in the face, punches a woman in the face, slams a woman into the wall, caves someones head in by slamming a heavy door shut on it repeatedly, intimates shooting a woman in the head, punches someone in the face, shoots someone in the face, disembowels someone, smashes someones head into a car window, slices someones leg off with a sword, slices someone in half with a sword, throws a knife into someones eye, cuts someones head off with sword and kicks the head at another persons head, slices someones throat, slices someones throat, slices someones throat, spears someone with a sword, slices someones throat, punches someone in the face, headbutts someone, kicks someone in the head, punches someone in the head, puts a sword through someones leg, kicks someone in the head, punches someone in the head, kicks someone in the groin, kicks someone to the head, punches someone in the face, drop-kicks someone, punches someone in the guts, punches someone in the face, punches someone in the face, breaks someones arm, breaks someones other arm, punches someone in the face, punches someone in the face, punches someone in the face, shoots someone in the face at point-blank range.

The plot is standard Hollywood fayre; Revenge is best, fully justified and should be violent in the extreme.

Hope you like my review.

There is a distinct and definite difference between that which we must not talk about and that which we do not talk about.

One is effected by Man - the other, by The Gods.

And what if The Gods are more merciful than Man?

What insights might we learn?

Unfortunately, the systems upon which The West relies so heavily were conceived and implemented in a different age. They are no longer fit for purpose and glaringly so; however, we have no alternative modernised systems to implement, due in great part to the uncomfortable fact that the outdated systems we have in place are not autonomous - they need a vast amount of support, not just for sustained continuance, but to avoid disaster.
The closest analogy may be painting ourselves into a corner.

What is the End-State of individualism, taken to it's extreme?

With each of us the star of our social media content, each of us the star of our government files, each of us a star with our own direct line to anywhere in the world, each a star with our own ideas about how things should be - how does that jive with coherant structural continuance going forward?

It doesn't.

We need to simplify.

It's not a question of which ism to follow. It's a question of something new. Unthought of. Unseen. Waiting to be discovered.

This reality gives us a blank canvas on which to paint an image of ourselves. Individually, we can decide, on whim, that which we project.
But for an advanced society of individuals to function as such, collective points of agreement must be reached.

The more simple the proposal - not only in terms of intellectual content, but also in terms of enthusiastically carrying it through - the greater the chance of it being recognised, understood, agreed upon and implemented by a body the size of a society.

A first step may be to recognise war as the archaic animal instinct that it is. It's boring, literally senseless, destructive and hate-filled. Body counts are meaningless unless personally experienced. Those that have personal experience can become obsessed with retribution. The cycle continues.

Why not let those that live a life of warfare develop sophisticated computerised war games to enact them amongst themselves and pay them to do so? The cost, in paper terms, may be large to support such a group, but so what? It would be offset by no more physical weapons industry. We have to make it more attractive than that which they are relinquishing. War would become a virtual playground. They can spend all day studying great battles from history, attending workshops to gain new tactics so that they can then go home, log into the central warfare command servers and thrash the living daylights out of their opponents all over the world. New stars will emerge in the art of warfare, new heroes will be created amongst their own and they will doing something they love to do. But they will no longer be harming anyone.

Radical? Pathetic? Pandering to base instincts? Yes, yes and yes. But we find ourselves, in this moment, in a position to actually make this happen. We could create and implement an entire industry, integrated into the economy as a whole, in which millions of people participate in simulation, rather than actuality. No one actually dies, no one is actually maimed, no buildings are actually damaged, no infrastructure is actually destroyed and no actual weapons are required. This is what AI should be developed toward.

There is no denying base instinct - but how we manage it is up for debate.

An end to war? Certainly.

A word about determining future events and their likely outcomes.

The Realisation continues to proliferate, but is blocked at every turn - at every conceivable juncture - by a system that is so close to realising it's own goals. There is every chance that The Realisation will turn in favour of The System that can smell victory, it's that close. But - and it's a big but - the nature of our reality allows for certainty to become vagueness, to become impossibilty in an instant.

The Realisation has, of course, two equally opposing sides - each with the attendant desired outcome at the extreme ends of the potential. It should be noted that in our binary-based reality, the greater the certainty of success becomes, the greater the chance of failure becomes. This is due to the "weighting factor" of a binary reality, in which 'off' can become 'on' by passing through the referential, central and balancing state of reality called 3state. it should also be noted that The Realisation refers to state of mind in human individuals, with it's attendant ramifications on the physical world a secondary consideration.

<------------------------------------------------------------------ "The Realisation" ------------------------------------------------------------------>

Outcome A <---------------------------------- /3state (the perfect pivotal point of balance) / ------------------------------------> Outcome B

We'll split The Realisation into it's two ultimate End-State potentiality outcomes:

Outcome A - the complete subjugation of mind, body and soul (or 'unification', dependant on viewpoint) of the totality of humankind under the banner of a single group of all-powerful individuals who guide humanity to a brighter (or darker, dependant on which group you belong to) future.

Outcome B - the complete release of all authority over the individual mind, opening up the potential for absolute freedom of individual perception of reality and the ability to 'see' that which is and that which is not. To, unfettered, know everything that is desired to be known. The opposing force of subjugation.

The System is, on an historical scale, close to realising Outcome A.

However;

an equally balanced and opposing Realisation has been building momentum against Outcome A. Even as Outcome A seems increasingly likely, it is equally increasingly unlikely, because, as Outcome A's end-state becomes more transparent - to achieve a dream, it must be enacted - it is drawing more attention (opposing balance) from it's opposition.

Ultimately, Outcome A will be thwarted (either by those opposed to it, or by an outside context event that those that swing towards Outcome A had not foreseen.) A more usual semblence of balance will be restored.

Such is the way of reality.

Disney had nothing to do with Deadpool - that's a Fox film. They have found their niche making R-rated superhero films in contrast to the PG-13 stuff Disney has put out. This includes Deadpool 1&2 as well as the (excellent, IMO) Logan.

The trend is your friend.

During the last fifteen years, we have seen - in The West - many, many of the conspiratorial powers that the system uses to maintain it's control over the minds of it's subjects exposed - and to a very much broader audience than that of the realm of 'conspiracy nuts'.

What has become apparant during this fifteen year period is that many more people harbour doubts about the official narratives promoted through the mainstream than the official narrative itself would have us believe. There are now an enormous number of people within our societies that are aware and are keenly watching what is happening. Brexit and the election of Trump, both of which paid lipservice to the blooming conspiracy malcontents - have not delivered any meaningful change in policy and business continues as usual. In fact, President Trump is busy filling his most important governmental posts with individuals that are the antithesis of change. The Americans that voted for Trump because they wanted the swamp cleared have seen the exact opposite happen.

Amongst the general population, the arc of exposure is still curving upwards. The existing power structure is not oblivious to this inconvenient fact. They realise that, whilst still maintaining control, their time in which to realise their goals is becoming limited. Time is - quite literally - compressing.

A thought cannot be unthought.

Thoughts are the enemy of The System.

Thanks for that. Still not a fan, even if its intended for adults. I suppose it has some merit inasmuch that it primes the psychos and gives them some ideas for the next war, world or civil. ;)

I highly doubt Deadpool will be the tipping point for psychos to take over the world. 🙄

but, the more people who can be converted to see ultraviolence as exciting, satisfying and watchable, the better -
for the already psychotic.
they want company
to attract others, similar to themselves
imitators
but pale by comparison
just enough bloodlust
to follow the scent
of their own demise

If the elders that run the show had any sense, they'd let Assange walk. And they do have sense - sense enough to run the show.
We may be in for an unsurprising 'surprising' turn of events.

The question is, at what point does a burning question become so imperative to ask, that to continue forestalling it's emergence drives future events at a pace that become uncontrollable?

Hidden amongst the theme of senses lost, is it possible that the human mind carries within it the collective memories of it's ancestors? To know the history of the World through shared yet individual experience - a vast pool of Bene Gesserit wisdom that would play havoc with the dominant narrative? And if it could be unlocked, who would dare to look?

Make sure you go in laughing. At The End. Because as above, so below. The ground above and the sky below. During The Moment. The Moment when before you the vistula opens of all and nothing, the state, the perfectness of it all, the calm and the fierce, the expansion and contraction, the breath of the tide, the open and the shut, the beginning and end, the cycle, the stop, the field of yellowing corn, the hustle, the bustle, the movement, the still, the sound of shrill, the silent, the effigy, the idol, the beast within, the angel and the mercy, the crass, the new, the old and the in-between.

Laugh at it all.

I can see why it ends in tears, time and time and time again.

As it becomes more obvious, it cascades into previously unnoticed, shrouded areas.

The majority, whom reside outside of the group - realise - individually - at a different pace, then BAM! - it is suddenly seen everywhere and becomes intolerable.

The depth is truly amazing. To be maintained, the belief amongst insiders is absolute. And that's what it boils down to - in distilled form - belief.

Herein lies a paradox - the insiders are the outsiders, though they would not have that believed.

Belief is a solid, fixed state of mind.

until

Disbelief - a brief, transitory state of mind - a re-fixing of belief, or reversal.

The greater the intial sense of belief, the greater the sense of disbelief during the questioning process.

The sense of disbelief can be as shockingly realising as it's counterpart - belief - is comforting. Opposing sides of the same coin.

Belief outweighs truth in our human-centric reality. It may have been this way for a long time, but disbelief is always waiting in the wings for it's chance to balance things up a little.

Disbelief is due a comeback.

To comprehend, you must think like they do.

We are better than they are. We are an exceptional people amongst humanity. We have a right to rule over them. They are less than us in every way - they do not have the capacity to realise that we are their masters - and that what we do, we do for their benefit - to serve us. They would be lost without us. They would live like animals if it were not for us. In trying to guide them, they rail against us, but they will pay a heavy price for insurrection - for they are treachorous creatures that would surely undo all that has been done, if we did not maintain an iron grip. We are cruel to be kind. Truth, for them, is whatever we will it to be. The Truth is Our Truth. The Truth that makes us Gods. And they must worship us as Gods. We shall truly have heaven on Earth, when they love us for the Gods we are.

This is what those that would prefer the opposite are up against.

If only we could see it for what it is.

We occupy a unique position in this realty. We are smack bang in the middle. Smack bang in the middle of a scale that extends infinitely bigger to one side and infinitely smaller the other. And because we are smack bang, we have the sentience to perceive it. Nature has been very kind to us. Nature allowed us to understand the concept of infinte, which should open our minds to the possibilities of that which our minds are capable.
It's about time we started living up to our promise.

The only way to ensure a collective change for the current human mindset, is to simultaneously change all minds in a single moment.

That sounds daunting, to say the least.

But is it? Because each of us lives in the moment. All the time. Right now, even. You're reading this - in the moment.

Billions of individual moments, all the time.

Hmmm.

They are in so deep, they risk being cut off from the reality they have created - completely - blindly following that which has worked before, realising with dread, but unable to admit -that it no longer does.

This is dangerous for everyone. Enormous power, used indiscriminately, always is.

There are no winners. There never are. The winners are those that lose the least.
