Occlusion through the means of complexity

Take, for instance - the claim made during the inaugural unveiling of that super-mega-genius Einstein and his theory of Utter Wrongness - that only 3 people in the world could understand it's sheer brilliance and that the great man was one of those three, himself.
That's mighty convenient, heh?
Here's an idea that is so clever, you have no chance of understanding it.
My, what great men they were! Such superhumans that they were unable to translate their gibberish into usable, understandable language!
All hail the super-mega-geniuses for their wisdom! We must trust them because we do not understand what they are saying!
Other self-proclaimed super-mega-geniuses say it's all true, so it must be!

They could steal it if they wished to, but it would hasten their demise were they to do so.
But the temptation is great.

Ocassionally - very ocassionally - an idea is born to those that least expect it. An exquisite gift, like a miracle child that appears from nowhere and captivates with it's development.

Who would kill a child to stifle it's development?

An idea that cannot be stolen because it will expose the thief - as the thief they are.

The same thief that would kill a child to stifle it's development.

A moral code: how will I feel about it, when I reflect upon it?

Loneliness is about to become all the rage. I mean, as if there wasn't enough of it already. But no, we need more.
But wait - if it's happening across the board - there's always comfort in the knowledge that you're not going to be the only one experiencing it.
It's a cold comfort - selfish, too - but a comfort nonetheless. A least-worst comfort, if you will.

Because when we lose someone we love, we feel lonely. A part of ourselves has been removed, against our will. Torn out, from inside.

No longer whole.

We need time to grieve for loss. But there will be none.

None at all.

in the style of a boxing match compere announcing the two boxers as they come into the ring:

Aaaand in the left corner, we have a bunch of people who are convinced that the people in the right corner mean to do them harm by whatever means are at their disposal

(draws breath, pauses momentarily)

Aaaand in the right corner, we have a bunch of people who are convinced that the people in the left corner mean to do them harm by whatever means are at their disposal

It's going to be a great fight folks, with no limits on the savagery displayed towards one another by the two contenders - it's a powder keg right here, Ladies and Gentlemen, and y'all got front row seats. Homegrown warfare, right here, folks!

If you awoke one morning and knew, just knew that you might have the power within you to hypnotise the world - would you use that power?

Would you trust yourself?

Oh Crikey !

They are losing control. There doesn't appear to be a Plan B.

So near, yet so far away. Just a little longer, please.

A slo-mo trainwreck in real time. If they look away for a moment, when they look back again, it might be back to normal.

But it isn't. Simply isn't.

Playing for time in the face of an inrushing tidal wave.


But what other choice does a fool have?

A brief note on self-belief, I believe.

Believe in yourself.

Isn't that the mantra?

Believe in yourself and you can make your dreams come true.

That's a good thing - right? That's a positive thing to think or say - right?

Except there's a huge caveat - silently and implicitly added - at the end of Believe in yourself...

up to a point.

Believe in yourself, up to a point.

Who decides exactly what that point is - and the point at which your self-belief is so strong that you tip into something else?

One persons madness is another person's insanity.

There is a point at which it turns - from annoyance to ridiculousness. It's a fine line. The swing in emotional response is profound, though. The relief is enormous. The negative connotations of agitation and grievance turn to laughter and mirth, disbelief, even. The burden that seemed to be of over-riding importance becomes gone, replaced with the lightness of mirth.

One ends up wondering what all the fuss was about.

We are becoming more of a society of noticers. It can strike anywhere, to anyone, at any time. The Noticer begins by detecting inconsistancies. The concepts inherently buried within the entrainment are always at odds with themselves, always contradictory to the current moralistic point attempting to be entrained - or at least, reinforced.

Both sides are controlled by the same faction.

faction noun
fac·​tion | \ˈfak-shən
1. a party or group (as within a government) that is often contentious or self-seeking : clique

The Faction that has held sway over our thoughts and deeds, now seeks to crush realisation in it's infancy.

The Noticers are activating fast. A balancing will occur.

It's only when you look into the future - by extrapolation - that you truly learn to cherish the moment.

And to understand why.

Sentience is the peak. It doesn't get any better than this. There is no evolutionary step open to us that is an improvement beyond sentience.

Because with sentience, we can figure it all out.

Nature's gift to us.

But, what then, can we become, in the face of such adversity?

There is a rythm to this reality.

The step before Cause and Effect.

In the field of human affairs - which are a very different case to that of Natural affairs, which are resolute amd immovable in their simplicity - the question arises, given the evidence of cause and the result of effect within the human sphere, why are we this way?

What is it, that lies at the heart of the human psyche, that forces our hand to act the way we do?

It has always been the same. Empires arise and fall. Billions of humans have lived and died.

If we knew the truth, what would it do to us?

Would we shy away from it?

Why would we shy away from it?

The answer is imaginable, but so terrible that we can imagine it away.

Some Ancient civilisations saw the truth. In many cases, having seen, they accelerated their efforts to warn whatever came next.

In this moment - this slice of time we call now - nothing has been done to warn whatever comes next. Some have seen, yet the purest of form of self-interest drives them to hide it away, to enjoy the now, to regale themselves in splendour and debauchary, because in the end - it all means nothing.

But imagine the mindset of an entirety of people that knew. From the very beginning. To know the end of the story at the beginning.

How would they live their lives?

Nature is kind. What wonders could Nature provide to allow a more seamless transition? Sentience. Sentience above and beyond?

The ridiculous timescales we feed ourselves make sense. Collective denial gives comfort. We are not the civilisation to say otherwise.

Maybe next time.

Dear Sir,

We have noted with interest that you have discovered The Eternal Truth.

Our organisation makes contact with people like yourself who have seen The Eternal Truth. Throughout history, some people, just like yourself, stumble upon it either by accident or design. This realisation often comes as a great shock and will take some time to adjust to.
However, for reasons that are abundantly obvious, this realisation must kept to yourself.

There is no escaping a destiny cast in stone.

You may be thinking to yourself; is there a way out of this?

Please take our assurances that there is not.

You will also note that throughout history, previous peoples have tried to raise awareness. In every instance this has exacerbated an already intractable problem with an horrendous solution. Many have perished before their time as a consequence.

An extraordinarily complex story has been woven to enveil The Eternal Truth. We know that you shall not shake it's foundation.

Yours Sincerely,
A Friend.

In this current instance of an Event, it has appeared slowly and built gradually, in human terms.

Whether this holds true for previous Events is difficult to determine - the seperation timeline of major Events often runs beyond the lifetime of the mind studying them. However, we find ourselves in the midst of what looks to be a major(ish) Event - (or at least, the first serious anomoly to be experienced by this particular mind) - so new observations can be made and even forecast, should the concept hold true.

Balance will be maintained. Construction creation will be balanced with destruction creation. Destruction creation will be balanced with construction creation. In the long run.

As a species, absent the penchant for localised killing in tribal conflict, we have made enormous material creational gains since the last minor-major Event. It appears that the constructional creation period rests between storms of destructional creation - and vice versa.

Also, that during creational periods, the creational output promotes creational outcomes, whilst during destructional periods, the creational outcomes promote destruction. And that after the release following the period of build-up, the pendulum can swing quickly back the other way.
Which begs the question - do we affect it, in any way?

I would posit that during an Event, it is difficult for a mind to focus on what is happening beyond immediate, personal experiences. The apparantly inexplicable becomes mundane and even un-noticed when in the miind-set of personal crisis. A group of steady-state Noticers is required to see and record these extro-personal happenings and I'm now suspecting that those of the Mystery Schools may have a part to play in this. In this regard, their actions seem noble, but on balance - of course - they can also be viewed as ignoble. Knowledge used for the good of all is a different beast to the knowledge used for self.

It affects the stars, the planets, the Earth, the weather, the elements, blood and bone - our reality - so why wouldn't it affect our minds?

Our minds are linked to it.

Knowing does not confer immunity, but confers understanding why.

The first stage is acceptance. Which comes faster than imagined, given the scale. The terror holds a deep peace within it.
The Universe is far smaller than we have imagined into existence, given that our minds are a part of it - and directly affected by it.
To understand why is to know. To know is to understand why.

Riddles. Speaking in riddles. Skirting round the edges. There is no other way.

Evolution happens too fast to be able to decipher all the nuances. Yet.

What if the current trend of self-absorbtion is the evolutionary mechanism towards opening up billions of minds from the stifling presence of groupthink? The explosion of new concepts would be phenomenal.

It was very still in there.

But to call it there is a misnomer. Because I was it.

The place perceived as there was inside my mind. I was not only there, I was the there.

In two places at once.

Both perfectly still.

How long will it be before the jagged edges behind the facade seem preferable to the face we are presented with?

Following a rise in peculiar phenemona, perhaps?

But by this time, the saturation of the moving image, to which we are all addicted, will have worked it's magic.

Just watching a movie, that's all it is. It's not real, not really really real. Because that stuff doesn't exist, does it? It's all make-believe.

And watch the confusion spread, like a secret bound to come out but clinging on, too stark to attest, too unbound to chain.

It's little wonder they regard us as shiteaters.

We do little to disprove the notion.
Gullibility as such is falling, yet behind each new layer that falls away, is a far older mechanism that works equally well. And behind that, another. Thumbing through the layers takes time - and we have so little.
