False Prophets : Faith in technocracy

Keynes and Hayek: Prophets for today

Commentary to article in the Economist

It is so easy to consider men of ideas that gain traction in society as kind or well meaning gentlemen. But the implementations of these ideas within political ideology can become a monstrous event.

Though a bit dated, Adam Curtis's Pandora's box (online view available)offers a gentle perspective on this. Naomi Klein's 'The Shock Doctrine', less so.

My own sense is that as we define ourselves, so will systems of organisation rise that automatically extend such definitions and reflect in society.

We are not really bankrupt in terms of true wealth - but in the paucity of negative, divisive and disconnecting self-definitions that we do not challenge or question but act as if presumed knowledge.

Self interest is primary - but if the self is defined at odds with our true nature, a coercive surrogate mentality operates. Whether that coercion operates via individual or collective coercion is secondary to that coercion is hatefully suffered and seeks justification in application.

True self interest would encourage cooperative movements of free associations within an integrity of being.

To seek answer in any one system of idea is a symptom of identity conflict and not actually a solution to it.
What we invest in with belief and energy of focus of attention, becomes personal, and distorts our perception.

The Global 'West' has made huge investment in a rationality disconnected from wisdom. A Prodigal error.
I see such rationality as the false god of materialism; the playground of the disconnected ego.
I can hear the bell ringing; "time gentlemen please!".

Fearful tactic

The US Is Recovering but Britain Isn't? Don't Believe It

(Propaganda about economies recovering as fear management and coercive intent)

This reminds me of the Israeli's 'Peace talks'. Enough of a seeming 'process' to maintain residual attention and investment in, while being played only as a power move without any integrity or actual credibility.

To Lulu below: ( A problem can't be fixed using the methods and mindsets that created it.)

In broad terms, yes of course but...
A problem is the mindset within which it cannot be seen for what it is.

The attempt to maintain the asserted framework when it is exposed as invalid calls up the 'problem solving mentality' in substitute for free ranging creative discernment and imagination.

The idea that we (collectively) are already indentured by debt and addicted to a system that perpetuates it render collective decisions for health unimaginable... unless a significant shift occurs that disengages the framework of reactive coercion. (Which masquerades as substitutes for freedom, power and protection).

The framework is a network of definitions of self in relation to existence and world and each other. The belief in loss and the fear of total loss, give rise to the predatory mentality in which everyone seeks not to be the loser - or to totally lose - and thus loses sight (belief) in win-win. To play NOT to lose is completely different from playing to win.

The essential wealth that we grow is what we put forth to multiply.

At the level of idea and definition, we have put forth ideas that multiply lack.

The level at which we create/choose modalities that bring conflicted and dissonant outcome-experiences is the level to re-waken AS. As long as we play victim and invest blame, seeking vengeance or justice in terms of the past - we effectively refuse to wake up to our core consciousness responsibility - and persist in the mode of leveraging our own consciousness and others coercively from a negatively defined (joyless) 'perspective'.

'Jesus' wont kick the door in, but when the 'devil breaks in to take his own', it is really the disintegration of fearful segregation that can not recognize itself truly - but persists in the persona of fear as if that is the self to be 'saved'.

There is even the knowledge that such self is a sham - and yet until curiosity gets the better of us - the sham is worshipped as power over the loss of our 'controls' and exposure of our powerlessness.

Paradoxically, the acceptance of powerlessness restores the power of a unified consciousness. It is the attempt to coerce Life from the personality level that results in chaotic chain reactions. Pride, vanity and arrogance.

One more thing... the attempt to eradicate the negative (segregating) choice is what empowers it with charge.

All choices being equal - what will you choose? As choices this IS always our creative threshold, but our current 'past definitions' weight our choices such as to make us rats in a maze from which we cannot escape... unless we become curious as to our core beliefs and challenge them in the light of a truly aligned CURRENT choice!

Latest Climate Change Wrinkle: Skyscrapers Out of Wood

Feds launch contest to tout wood skyscrapers as 'global warming' mitigation tool ... 'Programs are both part of the Obama administration's Climate Action Plan' ... The Agriculture Department announced the launch today of a prize competition for high-rise wood architecture and a training program to support the use of wood in buildings. – Climate Depot

The most fundamental and primary split that gives rise to the human consciousness as defined by its own splinter personality, is guilt.

Triggering the archetype of guilt is thus the key to invalidation of prior unity and persistent identity in reactive attempt to hide, escape, overcome or deny the believed guilt.

This can be observed in any human system - while it is latent and protected within our human consciousness, for whilst it may seem that the fears of guilt-consequence may be evaded, relegated to the past or rationalized out of existence - they remain the active distortion of the motive force that rises as the new system. No one tries to escape a situation they do not believe is real, so the attempt to escape, ITSELF, validates the fearful self-definition.

In perhaps more accessible parlance, 'Chicken Licken' may be prone to interpreting any unexpected event in terms of her fundamental fear of catastrophe (latent guilt), and may infect the other farmyard animals in bringing that guilt into an arena of mutual agreement and reinforcement, but it is Foxy Loxy who has his whiskers attuned to the opportunity for a killing and a feast and will subvert any such movement away from checking in with Owlsy Wowlsy (wisdom) with its foxy tricks.

So guilt undermines the unified expression of intelligence, and fear corals the mind along proscribed paths of acquiescence or indeed resistance.

One might wonder if Foxy Loxy contrives the whole scam. At this point I would remind the reader that all the characters in the story reside within one unified Consciousness - albeit acting out multiple personalities.

The 'must do something' mentality is the successful diversion from wisdom, which dawn on any mind that is willing to put aside its fear and challenge the judgement or interpretation that asserts guilt. The blind cannot lead the blind anywhere but into further levels of darkness and confusion, in which they think they know - but are deceived - and so know not what they do.

With respect to buildings. I have read accounts that suggest seasoned heart-oak survives fire better than steel - which twists and buckles and collapses - (though not instantaneously as 9/11's vaporising deconstruction. That was no ordinary 'fire'). However such resources require inter generational stewardship of resources. For our children's, children's children.
One might note that we have 'cashed in' a living inheritance that was always the nature of a Gift of Life. "Druidic Paradise" might symbolize a quality of Consciousness Responsibility - from whence sane relationships ensue.

There may be new technologies of construction that can use timber creatively, but I would not expect them to be high rise buildings. With respect for the ruse behind the 'competition', the phrase 'beast coming out of the deep' could well be used to symbolise the exposure of the mentality that has been distorting and effectively allowed to run our minds and thus our world for millennia. The exposure is not complete until we use the recognition to uncover our OWN participation in the power that it seems to convey - which is a segregated sense of self-specialness.

To merely envy the seemingly powerful is not going to expose anything within our OWN consciousness. Self-righteousness is the urge to redistribute (offset) guilt away from self - though Mr Loxy knows how to use limited sacrifice in victimhood to terrorize the 'guilty'.

Climate change, is part of a much greater cyclical rhythm. Change obliges us to wake up from what we settled in as true and creatively adapt the circumstance to our advantage; to arrive at a fresh appreciation of the nature of our existence. Guilt obliges us to more deeply invest in nightmare fears.

Rehabilitation and correction - or another millennia in the prison of self-hate?

Prisoners 'could serve 1,000 year sentence in eight hours'

Future biotechnology could be used to make prisoners feel as if they were serving a 1,000 year sentence, a team of scientists claim...
Biotech is yet another level at which the attempt to coercively manipulate Life to our own (disconnected) image-ination, will wreak havoc and yet illuminate the true nature of consciousness.

One can persist in what doesn't work but only serves to satisfy fantasies at expense of sanity using any and every technological means available.

Note that if everlasting hell and damnation were technologically feasible there are those who would apply it.

What is the true nature of crime or indeed punishment. What is correction, really?

What is the correct purpose of prison or any other restraining, correcting response to harming oneself and others?

The system of splitting consciousness by fear and coercing it with guilt is the attempt to force a will upon Life. This is a fantasy, but played out in deadly earnest.

We do unto others as we would ourselves be done. The self-hate that is deeply embedded into our consciousness may be repressed and denied acting out by social constraints, but it splits the mind off from it's Life.

Correction restores Connection. False 'connections' block and deny a true Appreciation. One doesn't need more and more complex technological management of unmanageable systems. One needs simply pause for a Sanity in which fear is NOT the master.

There is nothing forcing any of us to accept Connection to a true Appreciation. Perhaps one is ALREADY serving a multiple life sentence within - but unmindful of - the twinkle of an Eternity.

Hate is a perversion of love. One who loves to hate must also hate to love. Is this not a definition of hell? (Regardless of the presentation and packaging).

Consciousness can seem within itself to split off and act upon itself as if it were an elite and special 'god'. But there is NO love in it, but only hollow and transient substitutes. Why don't we wake up and walk free? Are we addicted to the prison food?

Guilt is a human technology that subverts natural remorse, contrition and immediate repentance - which is love's nature awakened - with an evil, worthless and fallen nature, that must FOREVER be hated and feared (yet secretly lusted after as power).

Everyone 'goes to Heaven' - because no one really IS what they have redefined themselves to be. When the masks fall off, the original error is revealed not as damning, but as a case of mistaken identity. The 'evil perishes' because it is without Foundation in the Oneness of God. It simply cannot be maintained in the presence of Love.
Hence 'fallen' man's technology devotes itself to way of avoiding love - which is ALL the true qualities of Life, and without which, there Is no life.

'For they know NOT what they do' - even though they believe they are awake and active as a power unto themselves.
