Slaves to the Pyramid


More Evidence That Consolidated Global Power Is Wielded by a Tiny Elite - (An article on the Daily Bell)




This is simply the way such power works. Those who 'wield it' are robot-slaves believing they are free. But their freedom is to struggle ceaselessly to maintain their concept of themselves as reflected in their story as if it was their self. Notice this applies at any 'level' of the pyramid.
Materialism posits and perceives an external reality of competing powers, over and against an interior self that struggles to work out its inner conflicts and divisions, EXTERNALLY. Thus it 'sees' a corrupt and evil world' and justifies itself both with and against such a world.

"Let the games begin!"

Power aligns all things to itself, but power remains yours to give according to your definition of yourself in relation to anything or anyone. If we give our allegiance to that which symbolizes protection and power against the exposing of our inner connectedness, and the conflict-devices that hide it, then it becomes the currency of our belief and investment.

While the bubble holds, power is intoxicating to the haves and frustrating to the have-nots. The bubble is a psycho-emotional event. However there is a structural service or communication beneath the distortion that has legitimacy even if it is pictured in personal or political terms. (Energy access is a legitimate function - energy cartel is a distortion).

In a pre scientific paradigm we would have simply said that the devil runs the world. The blinding of self in its disconnected 'freedom' rationalized the devil away to the lure the Bright New Scientific Utopia. In which we are particularly blind to our own unconscious agenda (consciousness) - because we have taken the bait of arrogance and vanity in the guise of a disconnected 'reason'. In the prodigal wasteland of our own devices, we finally wake to what we do but knew not - because there's no where else to go. No more wiggle room. So at last a choice can be made that is not set by deception; graduate or repeat the lesson. Because it is a real choice, there is no coercion involved - though every coercion will endeavour to keep such choice hidden if You do not yet want to know.

The demand for Unconsciousness is simply shaping the 'market' - which then conditions and nurtures its market like a herdsman. What ARE we asking for beneath what we think (trade) and present as power, wealth, possessions, highs, vengeance, respectability or validity? This IS what we are getting - as we have asked. One cannot really skim the surface in hiding from the depth and expect it to be real - though one can really have that experience - at a cost.

This song prompts me to share its lyric - by Leonard Cohen:

"A Thousand Kisses Deep"

The ponies run, the girls are young,

The odds are there to beat.

You win a while, and then it’s done –

Your little winning streak.

And summoned now to deal

With your invincible defeat,

You live your life as if it’s real,

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed,

I’m back on Boogie Street.

You lose your grip, and then you slip

Into the Masterpiece.

And maybe I had miles to drive,

And promises to keep:

You ditch it all to stay alive,

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,

The wretched and the meek,

We gather up our hearts and go,

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Confined to sex, we pressed against

The limits of the sea:

I saw there were no oceans left

For scavengers like me.

I made it to the forward deck.

I blessed our remnant fleet –

And then consented to be wrecked,

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed,

I’m back on Boogie Street.

I guess they won’t exchange the gifts

That you were meant to keep.

And quiet is the thought of you,

The file on you complete,

Except what we forgot to do,

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,

The wretched and the meek,

We gather up our hearts and go,

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

The ponies run, the girls are young,

The odds are there to beat . . .
