This short video explores the psychological divisions mankind has always lived within, destructive and war bringing to our lives. The rich men and their friendly politicians of Davos and the rest of the world this day. Traditionally, religiously, politically, nationality and patriotically, rich and poor, titled and pleb. Ideological as well as cultural traditional divisions which see us repeatedly coming to war and ever arming to prepare for war against each other. Man finds security in psychological divisions, because our minds are functioning within an educated programmed approach to life of measurement, becoming, which is self interest, based on an identification to childhood educated concepts providing psychological security. What we never notice is that our psychological security, which divides us all, arrives at the cost of our physical security, which is rather more important. A movement of identification, desire, fear and an accumulation seeking forever the abstraction of achieved 'success' and living in conceptual time, both remembered past, and projected future, forming out of the projected continuity of a continuing past remembered and consistently built upon. Living within an inner world of concepts, as a conceptual self, constantly becoming in time. An ego. A name, taken to be a thinker of thoughts, a permanent entity.
This inner feeling of continuity is behind our societal system of "progress" as well as our individual longings of ever seeking greater pleasure and success. And so inviting fear and psychological pain into our lives. We find our security in life by living in traditional historical divisons, ideological and long standing in nature. These accepted ideological and psychological divisons bring our lives to war, as divisions always do, (a war takes two sides), and so the security we find in the continuity of our national, religious, social, class and personal and familial identities, images, words and symbols, providing psychological security, brings to our life the absolute global physical insecurity in a world which has never known anything but bloody war and conflict in every year during the past 6,000 recorded years of our communal sorrow filled history.
Our cause is not lost yet, though it surely must be close to lost, for another companion to the ever present bloody chaos of living always within a system of measurement, comparison, becoming and competition, is an ever accompanying rapidly expanding progressive technology. We are already building death drone squadrons and robotic coffee makers which fire machine guns. Men in position of power, (money), are apparently discussing 'death' panels today. The inhumanity of divisive human consciousness acting on the ignorance of another life. Large numbers, seldom equates to large levels of intelligence. Nor empathy. A limited view to life of a giant inner self, leaves little room to see, let alone care for the life of another.
Money is apparently seeking the running of our world on "AI", - going full digital - which I think might be better changed to be named "AS" (absolutely stupid). Because, if we do not come to understand, (and soon), the limited nature of knowledge, (our own mind), which is our divisive thinking, which means to come to understand ourselves, and so bring deep valuable change to our lives, unless we understand how our knowledge based educated and limited thinking divides us and so repeatedly brings our world to conflict, we shall, at last come to final everlasting peace. For we shall no longer exist. And our very own divisive consciousness, programmed by society to live within its divisive tendencies, seeking its success, will have seen it so.
How weird is all of that?
