Evil …

The logic of “evil” is odd. Evil requires, for meaning at the conceptual level, Good. Each is married to the “other”. The next level of odd, has to do with the truth, which is that not only are Good&Evil married, that marriage is an embodied reflection of aspects of the Divine Mystery Itself.

In my book “The Art of God: an actual theory of Everything”, I write there, as part of the modern conception of God, the idea that observable reality reveals God is distributed, with the same virtues we notice in distributed computing. Keep in mind that distributed computing is useful both to solve certain mathematical/scientific questions requiring a lot of processing power, and it is also a fertile field for “bots” running/dancing to the selfish songs born in black-hat hacking.

If we are a sensible person, we also see how in life individuals make decisions, which decisions effect other folks as well. These “choices” (whether between good&evil, or some other duality) effect the world. We author the choice, and as an aspect of that it is the distributed god&devilwithin us, that chooses.

A sane understanding of Goethean science would cause folk to realize that spirit is everywhere right next to matter. Another married duality. Angels&demons. Men&women.

If we look within, at our feelings, that the properly chastised L. Ron Hubbard misnamed “the reactive mind”, we find another married duality, generally labeled: sympathy&antipathy. Here – in these feelings – is a tendency to move toward what we like, and away from what we do not like. This reactive feeling life, with its dual nature, has deep roots. In a certain Way, these feelings are “intelligence”, even if later we cannot articulate “reasons” for why we did what we did.

Rudolf Steiner described his view of the macrocosmic reality as containing another duality, which he named: Lucifer&Ahriman. The logos (logical) nature of such married dualities is that they are also united, and always a whole. There is no meaning if they are conceived as separate. Steiner taught that Christ was in between these two, and that Life was about our learning how to personally maintain the right relationship among polar conditions – we are the In Between that balances.

The use of the word Christ involves us with a more pressing problem, as regards the religious history of the world. To resolve this means first off to see the rise of the three patriarchal monotheisms as a reflection in the “earth” sphere of macrocosmic qualities – the Divine Mystery is not just Christ, but Allah and Jehovah simultaneously. All duality is in reality a trinity.

There is a social/spiritual set of observations called “Theory U”. It finds that if there is a descent, then there is also an ascent, again a duality. In the case of the Hebrews – who guided the spiritual descent into matter – they became people of the law. Very strict rules, which according to Steiner made possible the creation of a quite definite strain of genetic inheritance. Some work&order was necessary for there to be an avatar body, in which a God might be able to live for a time.

Rules and obedience. The Hebraic Divinity appears in multiple ways, including phenomena like burning bushes, pillars of cloud, and seas that obey the prayers of wizards. The old Testament is filled with dreamers dreaming, and poet-kings singing. Remnants of the goddess religions being slowly subsumed, as the three anti-feminine patriarchal monotheism began the work of imprinting themselves on the world.

Descent needed to followed by ascent. The earth-impression of the Divine Mystery is complex, and while on the one hand both the Hebrew – and already being born Christian religions – there also needed to be a balancing upward movement. Earth and Heaven being woven together, with the last “people of the book” – Islam, being deeply connected to the Mother, to the social heart – the family, and to the Idea of Surrender. We forget history’s song, when we judge Islam and do not recognize that during Europe’s dark age, Islam flowered with genius everywhere.

All three are being destroyed from within, through the advocates of my way or the highway, a common human foible that insures that social forms evolve. Another repetition of the primary marriage of polar states of consciousness.

Part of the current world situation is made especially acute, due to the fact that we feel we are a separate self, over here, while there is an outside/experienced world that is not us. Another duality, that is fundamentally a trinity, which totality itself is a unity, a marriage not in name only. No wonder Christ urges us to cleave to each other, and become again as little children.

Every human being is their own Path. Be yourself; and, I hope the above meditation on “Evil …” has been useful.

for a much longer contemplation: “The Mystery of Evil in the Light of the Sermon on the Mount”

Rudolf Steiner’s Agony

Rudolf Steiner’s Agony

In the Fires of Transformation, the Crucifixion of Anthroposophia – aka: The Dying and Becoming of the Anthroposophical Society, at the Dawn of the Third Millennium.

According to John the Baptist, the One coming after him would Baptize us all in Fire and Holy Breath. On the cusp of the end of the Kali Yuga, Yeats writes: “… the center cannot hold, and mere anarchy is loosed upon the world … “

In their socially walled off vastness, in the mountains of Switzerland, the Anthroposophical Society, draws inwards, … with some degree of wisdom seeking to ride the seas of the plandemic-Pandeminium Reboot. However, in the time of the “center cannot hold”, the best Way might just be to let “it” die, … yet habits and ambitions often fail just at such moments.

Christ died. Steiner died. The imagination is now being ruined and abused by scientific materialism, whose arid&abstract pictures of the truth of health and illness are themselves a leading cause of death.

A century ago, Steiner pointed out that the “conception” of the “atom” was evil. Not the “thing” so much, as that idea of the smallest was neither true nor good, therefore by implication: evil. Parts rule wholes according to materialism. The truth is otherwise, yet absent. We fall as a civilization as a natural consequence of the cognitive dissonance between the modern “scientific” picture of the human being as only matter, and the fact that our true nature is spirit regardless our systems of belief.

There was recently published a short article in the latest World Wide News, out of the Goetheanum: “Truth finding and will formation”, by Philip Kovce. It sought to point out a disconnect between the role of science in politics, and the role of politics in science. Science is about truth finding, while politics is about will formation, is how Kovce puts it.

I’m not entirely sure that is fully accurate.

Kovce continues, I paraphrase: For example, to argue for certain social/political changes on the basis that the “truth” requires such changes, is to confuse functions. Social change, in order to be healthy at least, needs to be democratic, not driven from the top down, and rooted in some sort of scientific authority.

Clearly Dornach wrestles with external social/political demands as regards social distancing and the like, and the implications of the true causes of illness, via the indications of Steiner, as well as the direct experience of many anthroposophical doctors.

I believe it is a German thinker that suggested that the last stage of a society/civilization was: Bureaucracy. I refuse to argue the obvious. If the reader does not already see this with their own cognitive capacities, they should perhaps stop reading at this point.

There exists a Goetheanistic Spiritual Social Science, rooted in learning to the read the Book of the Social/Political Life of Humanity, after the indications of Steiner, and the example of Goethe. My main book in this regards is: “The Art of God: an actual theory of Everything”. I was just turning 70 years of age, and in the months previous to writing it, I had been initiated into both the Mysteries of the Mother, and the Mysteries of the Son.

One’s own will has little to do with these Rites. They come at the initiative of the Mystery, and we who experience them are cursed. If blessed are those who have not seen, and yet believe, then certainly those are cursed who have seen and yet are not believed.

Steiner is among the latter, … cursed. Used, glorified, studied, remarked, but not actually followed. Aka: Rudolf Steiner’s Agony, and the Crucifixion of Anthroposophia.

The reader of this is encouraged not to assume anything here is about political change at the Goetheanum. The center cannot hold because it is occupied by flawed human beings. Some of them will resist change. What resists will be broken.

Still, the plandemic-Pandemonium Reboot has to be addressed, from an Imaginative and Inspired point of view. As a recipient of such insights, it is clear that they do not belong to me. When you “learn to think on your knees” (Tomberg), and experience “it thinks in me” (Steiner), respect requires being more of a vehicle than an authority. They show, I see, and tales are the result.

You, the reader are stuck with making up your own mind.

When the center fails, the life of inspiration from without moves to the periphery. All the way to the individual. If you are doing something, because Steiner or some student of Steiner sez to, let that go. The Mystery wants You being You.

We are all the right people, in the right place, at the right time. For your spiritual dining pleasure during this time of change and reconsideration, They gifted me with ideas. I am not asserting I have done the best with That, but all the same I have simple tried to think in the way thinking taught me.

This link is to my best thoughts …

tea with mom

so I was having tea with mom, and her son was building a boat for the two of us to go fishing for men … he had this curious way of naming his tools. each tool was individual, but types with similarities would end up near each other.

while working with them, and caring for and cleaning them, he would sing to them, or perhaps better – in terms of causality – he would sing them into being.

nearby, were the weavers of the loom … which while endless, still passed by for our review, …among the threads were somethings so black it was as if it was not there at all … one of the loom weavers sang to/of it as the “empty dark”

…I raised an eyebrow in the direction of mom, hoping she might have another word or two to add, which was this riddle: “the idea of geometry”.

my thoughts wrestled with that … such creatures as a line, or a point, or a plane … those were … however, not the idea, but the deed as was done by the idea …a power of order so absolute there was no escape … it just was …

the Name we give to this remarkable being, “the intellect”, aka: Ahriman …

evil is a human conception, while the Mystery knows that conception is there for us to overcome, a defect in the seeing, a beam, a log, a riddle in a mirror

Happy Covid Thanksgiving

Happy Covid Thanksgiving

My Lady’s two daughters – one a school teacher in NYC, the other a curator at the Davis Museum, in Wellesley College, near Boston – are coming for thanksgiving. Their significant others are flying to see their parents, in places like Texas.

Getting together with family is important, perhaps even more important now. Still, the question came up for us as regards the wearing of masks, especially when we play our favorite card game (and grandma’s as well – although she died four or five years ago on Christmas Day). So we play “May I” in remembrance, and for the fun, and jokes and laughing.

These are not vain rituals (yes, for some dinner with family is a horror show). Connection is important. Support is important. Time together is important. I am 79, ripe with heart disease issues, and my lady is 67, with her own health issues.

According to the main narrative of worry, anyone, or all of us, could be dead in a year.

I asked my Lady if we were going to wear masks. She knew my views, and asked me to wear one, at least for the card game. Everyone would feel better, and their feelings are important, she suggested.

I declined.

For me the question was less about their feelings (mostly worry that they could be carriers and give the bug to us).

My home is my last realm of resistance, to a terrible crime in progress. If I wear a mask, I consent; and, if I don’t walk the walk, I have no basis for talking the talk.

I do go out to see doctors, if video is not an option. These are annual and semi-annual checkups, for my health is quite stable. I wear a mask then, as I would otherwise be refused care.

My view of the covid-mess is complex. I am, by avocation, a philosopher. Not an academic philosopher, but someone who works out the fundamental questions for themselves. I write books, such as: “Sacramental Thinking” (which is about the method of cognition), and “The Art of God: an actual theory of Everything” (which is a product of that method).

I wrote this to sum up my views on our present historical confusion. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/09/27/earth-motherholy-mother-and-the-mystery-rite-of-the-plandemic-pandemonium-reboot/

People tend to think that the spiritual nature of reality is only grasped as a set of beliefs. I do science. Details are above.

If we cast our minds back a decade or so, we have the aftermath of a financial crisis that nearly brought the world to its knees. There are bad actors in the world, who do not care who or what they harm, as long as they can satisfy their own appetites. To the soul-less multinational corporation, human beings are just workers and consumers, as well as cannon fodder for their many wars.

The consequences to the life sphere of the planet, from out of our industrial civilization, are terrifying, and there seems to be no political will to heal the environment. For many of us, life is a grind, of crappy jobs, failed relationships, and broken dreams. The Hopi have a name for this stage of civilization: Life out of balance.

Too much change, too fast. Alarm goes of, we caffeinate and sugar, ride the crowed subway to work, in a cubical matrix full of human drones. We serve the “owners”, but are not served ourselves.

The highways are crowded. The air is polluted, as is the water and our foods and medicines (side-effects anyone?)

I’ve lived through civil rights, sex, drugs and rock’n roll, the assassinations of JFK, MLK, RFK, and John Lennon. Women’s rights. Gay rights. Nixon. Reagan. Bush one and two. The Clintons. Obama, and now Trump.

That song never changes. “Vote for me, the other guy is the cause of all our troubles, and only I know how to fix everything.” Meanwhile, please donot notice how much we lie.

Trump was unexpected. Even he did not expect to win. If you look at the details, he had a lot of luck and good fortune. Washington spoke of Divine Providence as real. Modern materialistic science (all is matter, there is no spirit) sez we are a product of random events.

The effect of Trump was to disable government, just at the moment we most needed sanity, given that the whole world was being told by “experts” that the dreaded boogeyman – “a pandemic” – was upon us full force.

As someone who is a careful and methodical student of “media”, the pandemic narrative came too fast. I am familiar with “marketing” strategies, and this whole “idea of the pandemic” was being driven with obviously well organized and financed “public relations” at work.

For example: A 20 minute video showed up called “the Plandemic”. What was truly curious was how quickly the woman doctor who made it was vilified on social media. Of course, major media was already captured by the juggernaut of the narrative, so that social media was a place less totalitarian.

It was actually the total mass of the attacks on her that drew my attention. Hundreds … to her one. I wanted to know what she said that caused such a response. It took some research and questions, but while Facebook no longer had the video available, other places did.


She gave us the smoking gun, by identifying the patent wars that go on behind the scenes in Big Pharma. The wealth which is at stake is almost beyond measure. She wrote a book: Plague of Corruption, about the upper levels on WHO, the CDC, and the FDA. Those organizations are not to be trusted, anymore than we should trust the governments that fund them, or the corporations that need to control them in order to generate profits.

That is one layer of a seven layer bean dip of social actions and reactions, and science or not.

I see the activity of the Mystery in such events. Even though a lot of bad actors are doing the usual, the fact is that She took the pandemic, and added even more chaos, which I have been naming: Pandemonium. The Earth Mother ~!~!~!~ Holy Mother is what was once called: Divine Providence, there being no random events at all. What She did was take this moment, and use it to stop in its tracks the rush of modern civilization. We fear the loss of the prior order, but our days are now spent on survival skills, and making the best of a bad situation. We have been gifted with time to think, reflect, and reconsider the course of the future. Our environment is cleaner. We discover a need to occupy ourselves beyond the rush of jobs and duties and sterile distractions.

People are helping each other. Both the helped and the helpers gaining spiritual strength.

Meanwhile, major media having become mere infotainment, we get buried under numbers, which any real scientist sees as unjustified (not any real research), and which worry worry worry narrative is actually making folks’ health worse, stress being a major component of why the immune systems of so many are so compromised.

These are at best hints, given the volume of my writings on the covid-confusion. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/10/22/covid-confusion/

Situational Anarchy

Situational Anarchy

Or … how the Mystery sees us …. Choice Makers. Our choices leave a mark on the whole situation of humanity. At the same time, the whole situation leaves its stamp upon us.

Some years ago I read (many times) the Illuminatus Trilogy, written by Shea and Wilson. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Illuminatus!_Trilogy

I was often stoned, on purpose, when I read it. At one point reading it gave me headaches and I stopped. I believe many minds could and ought to be blown while stoned and reading these books.

I reference this work, because memory sez there was a character in the novel who taught the arts of situational anarchy. For example, he would go into a posh department store, and find a wall near the woman’s dressing rooms, and put up a small well designed bronze sign, which said in excellent calligraphy: “No spitting on the floor”.

The absurd incongruity between place and idea is thus expressed, with sublimity and flair.

The political radical, Saul Alinsky, was once asked by some students at a Christian college, how might they protest, given their general social environment. He advised them to chew a lot of gum, and leave it everywhere. A nuisance sure, yet a point made without confrontation or potential violence.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Alinsky

Most of us get as part of our world view, some degree of knowledge and experience of all the terrible in the world. Arguments over power and wealth. Religions at cross purposes. What to some is a hoax authored by greed.

Our situational choices are, to the Mystery, a wonder. There is no pre-knowing what any individual spark of the Mystery will choose to do. The Mystery has helped us, as individuals, find ourselves a place in life in which we too can touch and change.

So what the covid-monster is murdering millions. For each of us this situation is lived, not just one day at a time, but one “now” at a time. The Mystery Rite of the plandemic-Pandemonium Reboot is different for all individuals, given that the real fruit of these experience is that we have the opportunity to create within the reach of the own will.

Ideas are just as important as physical objects. We can hide a gun, and we can hide our hearts. Many of these choices are dangerous, physically and psychologically. All are trans-formative of spirit and soul. All involve the evolution of the personal i-AM to take place through our actions, which only we may judge.

The way we see the world, as ideas&concepts, is ours to generate. The heart’s mind is both private, and a personal garden. We plant the seeds, cultivate the soil, and water the plants. Some of what comes to be in that “there”, we can share.

Some we cannot, and should not. Our choice.

Covid-19 and The Law

Covid-19 and The Law

Can the State force human behavior on the basis of the opinions of modern medical scientists?

The essential need is for the protection of the civil rights of human beings, and their children’s children’s children, unto seven generations.

To help give some context, let me generate an imaginative scenario, that could actually take place.

A rally is held by alleged Trump supporters, where intentional violations of State authority are challenged, as regards the wearing of masks, social distancing, remaining in place, and coming soon to a Theater-Absurd near us all: forced vaccinations.

Arrests are made. In defense of the arrested, the authority of the State is challenged, on the basis that modern medicine is less science and more religion than people have been willing to recognized. The existence of the virus and its contagious nature, are scientifically untrue, such that the political-media hysteria that followed is based on bad science.

This being the case, it is the right of the people – under the ninth and tenth amendments – to refuse to consent to being ruled by bad science, and fear, joined at the hip to greed, … and, anointed by media hysteria and political ineptitude.

Normally, in the courts, we have various experts appear, who are expected to not agree, and the legal/truth issue is then considered/allowed to be ruled upon, by a jury, or a judge. By offered pre-agreement, in the above case, the defense team accepts/urges that the State put up its three best experts, and the defense will put up none … although … the defense will challenge their “expertise” through a process called voir dire.

While legally the State can pick its own experts (in America, under the U. S. Constitution) , the defense points out that it would certainly be suggestive of a guilty conscience if the State did not offer Dr. Fauci as one of their experts. The Media had been claiming he was the leading expert on these kinds of diseases, so let him come in a Court of Law, and swear under oath.

In case the State does not offer him, the defense will call on Dr. Fauci, to testify for them. In this venue he might not always wear his usual kind of subtle happy go lucky grin: “I’m the center of attention, and I like it”.

Such witness can be treated as “hostile” to the defense, which gives a lot of latitude to the nature of the questions, such as being “leading”. For example, a hypothetical question, that may assume a fact not yet in evidence, can be given to the “expert”. The State by putting up the witness already ties itself to what their own witness offers. By not putting Fauci up, the State will look like the fools they really are.

Skillful questioning will easily elicit the differences between the arts-medical, and the pure science of chemistry, physics, and mathematics. Inquiry is made into the philosophical/epistemological basis for the general ideas of the nature of the human being to which the expert him/or herself has committed.

Do they believe in Big Bang cosmology, or Neo-Darwinian evolution? What is the difference between theory and knowledge. An examination is taken of the “experts” knowledge (or not) of the history of how modern materialistic science came to the conclusion that all is matter, there is no spirit.

The kinds/content of the answers are maps to the next areas of the theories of medical science that are to be explored. For example, is the “expert” religious, and if so how are his fundamental concepts about health also their own kind of “religion”.

How this unfolds in Court can not be exactly predicted. At the same time, to a knowledgeable person the logical fault lines in modern medicine can be uncovered, with the result that a proper Socratic Method will get the expert witness to damn their own discipline, to himself and thus to us.

Music Thought the End of the World,

Music Thought the End of the World,

while watching Dragons Mate,

using Lightening for Song

The book “The Invisible Rainbow” tries to wrestle with the planet-wide existence of man-made electrical and magnetical “fields”, and their potential as causes of illness. The writer is a good scientist, yet a materialist all the same. Does not yet know such phenomena have a consciousness inside, similar in nature to our invisible human inside of thoughts, feelings, and impulses of the will.

I wrote this as a help for folk wondering that riddle: https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/05/14/electricity-a-devotional-and-artistic-representation/

Yesterday, as I thought about such strangeness, I remembered my days with the middle daughter, who as a child lived with me, from about her age of 2 ½ to age 5. I had no car, yet the North Oakland-Berkeley low-rent district was basically flat. Had to have some wealth to live in the hills.

We walked everywhere, with her sometimes on my shoulders. On her own she explored the world of sidewalks, fences, various flora and fauna – such as rose-bushes and fenced in barking dogs, while streets and cars required careful attention.

Over time, as we did these walks almost daily, she increased the distance between my awareness of her, and what next to explore. I noticed this invisible string of mutual awareness early on, so as time passed the string grew longer, but never was broken … yet.

She needed, and I needed, to be mutually aware … for her safety, and my sanity. She easily understood streets, and would wander ahead of me, always stopping at the next intersection, waiting for me to catch up. Sometimes a rock wall drew her attention, yet the sense of the situation was for me to be in arms reach when climbing was beckoning, so she would look at me, and wait.

Experience begat rules, that needed no verbalization, … mostly.

With my older children there had been a lot of yelling “watch out”, but here I was being taught that we had a shared “attention”, mutually aware.

We lived in a house on Alcatraz Avenue, that had been divided into three apartments. She and I had the downstairs back, and above us was a mother and son – he named “Mann John” for reasons never offered. The two children were often together, both being in that curious age: four years old. They ran around the “house”, upstairs and down, inside and out, … our place had a back door to the yard, which had a low fence around it.

At a certain moment, both adults called out to each other: “where are they”, and finding neither of us knew, began an outside search. The main worry was Alcatraz, which was a main East West street, pointing right at that monument. The side streets had stop signs. Alcatraz red lights at main intersections. Traffic always fast.

Plus, there was a light rain.

As we walked the side street, going North, out in the distance came two dancing and laughing children, … in the rain, holding hands, and naked as the day they were born.

A four year old is a natural anarchist.

There are limits to the connection-attention, although most mothers assert their knowing if a missing child was dead.

Of course, in my mind – in the present, I just skipped past all the details reported above to an interesting riddle. “What if the Son and the Mother know each of us by such an unbreakable connection-attention?”

Even with all the drama of ends of civilizations and such, we remain loved&adored by the Mystery. What is the nature of the indwelling connection – do we have an experience-shared, as do They?

Consider that “fields” of levity (light) and gravity (weight) all have a conscious-inside. We feel/are Their infinite array self-sense organs.

When we sit in the sun, and feel the sun’s warmth, the Son also feels our fire (elemental will). He also breaths us, being the “In It (the Word) was Life, and the Life was the Light of the World”

When we feel weight – both “physical”, and soulful as in “the blues” – She also feels our heart-ache (elemental feeling). She always holds us in Her connection-attention. How else could we sleep at night?

When He had spent His All, at the never ending blooming life-center of time, She caught Him. She is Endless Resurrection, and holds the whole world in His Hands.

There is no time or space, just love. Our existence, while fraught with personally sought trials, is kind of simple. “The best six doctors anywhere, and no one can deny it; are sunshine, water, rest, and air, exercise and diet. These will gladly you attend, if you are only willing. Your mind they’ll ease, your will they’ll mend, and charge you not a shilling”

“Let go, let god” sez the troubled addict. Now I lay me down to sleep, and pray the lord my soul to keep. And, If I should die before I wake, I pray the lord my soul to take.

Feel breath and warmth. Feel weight. Explore the connection-attention.

Welcome to the Real Zombie Apocalypse

Welcome to the Real Zombie Apocalypse

In the ‘60’s I watched a documentary on Carl Jung, noted explorer of dreams and such. He was asked by an interviewer: “What did you observe in these thousands of dreams to which you have listened?” His reply: “A great change of consciousness is coming”.

In my work I “read” the-collective-imagination, noting in the Arts how various themes arise and fall. What lurks in the heart’s mind of Artists is their visionary sensitivity. A common dark theme is this idea of a “zombie apocalypse”.

Something invades the nature of human beings, and they devolve into human flesh eating monsters, carrying death to everyone they chew upon. Yet, that death is odd, for once the human has died, the monster comes to life, and using that horrible body these creatures ravage the whole world, destroying civilization.

Such a “creature” is impossible to kill, mostly, given that its nature is to reanimate itself endlessly. This endless rebirth process sometimes can be killed by a shot to the head, and/or the head being completely cut off.

Generally, no one escapes in these stories, although often some remnants of humanity hide out, and learn how to survive.

Is this dark dream an artistic vision, from the collective unconscious, via the collective imagination?

“monsters from the id” Fobidden Planet

The basic narrative of those selling the Big Lie of the pandemic is that some horrible infection is possessing just about everyone who comes in contact with a “carrier”. Often those surviving begin to fear any kind of less-than-antiseptic contact with the “carriers”. Theses potential carriers must be tested, and whatever the result of the tests, we have to make them take the medicine the authorities are telling us we all need, or we will die.

We have to hide, and coerce those who are already possible been bitten, in order to save ourselves.

In the above metaphor of the zombie apocalypse, Covid-19 is not the monster. It is the Idea of the Narrative that is the Monster. This fear-driven/belief/idea – that we must isolate or die –

needs to be killed. We have to shoot in the head, or take the heads off of those carrying the disease of acceptance of the Big Lie. Our weapons are the scientific truth, which the Narrative tries to constantly overwrite, like a massive hack job on the whole consciousness of humanity.

I recently wrote some material for a friend, as medicine for their heart’s mind.

The first essay was called: Healing Broken Dreams, and concerned what could be done politically in America, in these times of chaos and confusion. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/11/16/healing-broken-dreams/

The second was called: “let me sum up what I know … and you don’t have to buy any of it”. This concerned the underlying scientific problems of the Narrative. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/11/16/let-me-sum-up-what-i-know-and-i-dont-expect-you-to-buy-into-any-of-it/

The third: “The Beast from the Abyss”, is some comments on the nature of the human dark involved in this whole dance with harsh truths. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/11/15/the-beast-from-the-abyss/

Fourth: “Blessed are those who have not seen, and yet believe. There is a corollary to this: Cursed are those who have seen, and are not believed.” https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/11/16/blessed-are-those-who-have-not-seen-and-yet-believe/

Blessed are those who have not seen, and yet believe

Blessed are those who have not seen, and yet believe. There is a corollary to this: Cursed are those who have seen, and are not believed.

The final stage of the Seven Stages of the Passion of Christ is Resurrection. Before that is the Stage called Entombment. Complete powerlessness to effect anything. The own will is impotent.

During our lives we experience all Seven Stages, often in a not at all linear fashion. For example, where we are attacked for our thought, that is a Crowning with Thorns. At the same time, the whole is from moment to moment a kind of forge, where the own spirit becomes an individualized sword of the Dude who does not bring Peace. Where our will reaches, our truth speaks in words and deeds.

At the same time, it should not be assumed that we are doing nothing during moments of entombment. Internal alchemical miracles ripen in such an environment.

I’ve had some difficulty communicating what is experienced, and putting that into language. The Aristotelians in the Anthroposophical Society are fascinated with “clairvoyance”, after all their Master had that power in spades, or so it is believed. Yet, Steiner was on to something when he pointed to the potential of thinking, such that his first works support the development of something that could be called: conscious cognition, or clair-thinking.

For me this clair-thinking has various qualities, the main one being an awake kind of intercourse between the own I, and the World Thoughts. Tomberg urged “learning to think on our knees”, and Steiner saw the same from an additional point of view: “It thinks in me”.

In one sense we could speak of Anthroposophia as the Imagination. Just as Ahriman is the untamed by the heart intellect, so is future potential for human beings waiting in the Anthroposophia/Imagination experience.

Goethe pioneered a strict and careful phenomenology. We set aside our cognitive process, for the pure experience of the phenomena, and learn to read what It speaks. We can aid this process be intentionally recreating in our own imagination the phenomenal experience. As with any human activity, there are stages of development, which might be: first skill, then craft, and finally art.

Harder to appreciate is that this form of perception is centered in the life of feeling. Well, harder for some, … for a musician nothing could be more obvious.

When a musician hears music that is disharmonious, grossly so, there is a kind of pain, depending of the one’s “taste” in a kind of way.

When I read and hear folks talk about the Mystery Rite of the plandemic-Pandemonium Reboot, using the conventional narrative, my soul burns with the pain of the illogical and money driven crime in process.

I don’t often disagree with the Mystery, understanding the reality of leaving the big picture to the Big Picture Folk, yet … where is the reach of my will? Say nothing? Do nothing?

A friend asked about politics and the future. I replied, in accord with my sense of the music, and what might be helpful themes that are both honest, and workable.

When I think on my knees, and It thinks in me, I have not at all abandoned self. We dance together, and I record that dance in words on the page. The “feelings” of pain cannot be communicated, although the burning rage at those who act upon humanity in such traitorous fashion, remains.

He threw the money changers out of the temple. Can we do any less?

Let me sum up what I know … and I don’t expect you to buy into any of it …

Let me sum up what I know … and I don’t expect you to buy into any of it …

The ideas of scientific materialism (all is matter, there is no spirit) have produced a materialistic medicine, whose models eliminate from consideration basically anything that cannot be reduced to number, or otherwise be “counted”, such as levels of stress, degree of sensitivity, will to live, and the real strength of the “immune system”.

This same style of thinking focused on “parts”, as if by finding the smallest physical entity we would know how the whole was built. In Cern, and elsewhere in physics, a current idiotic idea is that something very tiny and that has a nearly immeasurable half-life, though quantum magic became the “wholes” we observe everyday. In biology, the discovery of DNA was supposed to be the unlocking of the secrets of life.

It turns out the “cell environment”, in which the strands of DNA thrive (or not), is itself a crucial causal element = parts effect wholes and wholes effect parts. https://www.natureinstitute.org/

This is the same general understanding of the ancients – the integrated roles of wholes and parts.

“Western” Civilization was meant* to abandon this style of thinking, which ultimately led to the methods of the early natural philosophers being very involved in taking “things” (often while alive) apart, seeking to discover the source of “animation”, which we today might call sentient life.

If we combine the above factoids, we get a way of seeing illness as an isolated aspect, causally at fault for the environmental condition {the whole} in which the tiny-thing {the part} proliferates.

Doctors become specialists, in an age where Sir Arthur Eddington described the scientific process as knowing more and more about less and less. All details, no useful big picture.

The natural philosopher, while becoming a “scientist”, is also at war with religion, as was religion at war with science. Scientific materialism won that war on the way to becoming the dominant, fully secular, belief system in the world.

This successful insurgency also tried to dominate the artist as well. Not so much directly, but rather through the devices that take “pictures”, including the x-ray machine. Certainly the idea of “schooling” fell to the ax of all is parts, so when we are educated, our thinking is trained in a How, or Way, of thinking, that makes it harder to know reality, by being in denial of the non-material, of which thinking itself is the primary phenomena.

In recent years, there has come to be a more obvious division between the educated and the so-called uneducated, with the eggheads taking us to war in Vietnam. Even our social political ideas are trapped in the fascination with parts over wholes.

For example, the idea of a US economy, or a California economy, are both fictions. What Economy is is world-wide, a whole, yet in political dialogues this is never understood, and promises are made to fix our economy, independent of the other local conditions of money aggregation.

Give someone a degree from a university, and some serious post degree torture in hospitals taking advantage of interns and residents, and poof: we’ve made a doctor. A doctor who is one-eyed and colorblind, a more poetic reference to the inability to properly weave parts and wholes into wisdom.

There are folk that understand this next point, but in general people don’t want to admit to it. By the time we leave adolescence, most of the ground of our understanding of the world is fixed, in the very languages we use. As a consequence (of a kind of co-dependency of thought), we all more or less see the same world in accord with the conventional points of view.

In tragic fact, we often do not see the world of phenomena at all, directly, but follow the way we have been taught to see, such that we see the “taught”, rather than the true what is. We project onto experience a mask.

We also idolize the “scientist”. They are a new kind of priest. In the News business, they love to use the terms “leading scientists believe” in front of some sort of supposed accepted scientific fact. In fact, News folk depend on a whole crowd of talking heads, with expert “opinions” going on about whatever is today’s most hysterical confusion.

We got told a not true story, based upon a confusion, which incidentally benefits the wealthy to a whole new level of awesome.

In the ‘70’s, Big Tobacco appeared before Congress to assert that they had no idea nicotine was addictive. Swore on a stack of bibles, hands raised, standing tall. In the ‘90’s, Big Pharma got Congress to pass a law saying these companies cannot not be found liable for any diseases or illnesses connected to vaccines.

The only reason for Big Pharma to go to that much trouble is they know (have a guilty mind) they are poisoning human beings. What is in cigarettes is poison. What is in our medicines is poison.

If you carve away the erroneous ideas of scientific-materialism-medicine, we are not having a pandemic rooted in a contagious tiny thing. We are having a civilization-ending crisis about what is true, in a situation where habits of thought keep people from actually looking.

Most see what they have been taught to see.

https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/10/11/why-are-so-many-dying/

If you were to read the first 70 or so pages of “The Invisible Rainbow” {TIR}, you would come upon the fact that post 1918 Spanish flu research discovered that there had been no contagious virus at work, for the simultaneous nature of outbreaks showed that whatever “it” was, it was not contagious given the distance between outbreak locations – if this “thing” had been “carried” it should have taken time to get from one place to the next, instead of just showing up in many places at the same time.

The only correlative fact was that in those initial locations a new form of high energy electromagnetic radiation was being broadcast {radar}, and each outbreak area was the locus of brand new radar installations. TIR also reports on initial experiments with electricity, where folk would form chains at a posh party, to feel this experience of being “electrocuted”. While many felt a kind of pleasurable buzz, a significant few had spontaneous bleeding, and other gross symptoms such as fainting, upon being exposed directly to electrical “current”.

Other research following the 1918 flu epidemic discovered that most of the deaths were caused by people with flu symptoms receiving the allegedly curing “vaccine”. In point of fact, materialistic medicine mostly does not cure, so much as try to alleviate symptoms.

Tom Cowan wrote his books trying to get a better grasp on the real nature of heart “disease”, cancer, and autoimmune diseases, – seeking to cure, not just suppress symptoms. All these diseases are modern, including the seasonal flu. All of these arose as powerful chemicals were being applied in all fields, exposing people to poisons, and over the years euphemistically disowning them, by calling this “pollution”, “acid rain”, “side-effects”, and such as “gluten allergies” (which is baldly inaccurate, since the poison in Roundup is well known).

Big Pharma routinely tested all manner of experimental drugs in Africa, paying bribes while lying about effects. Again, the ideas are materialist, and the result was to weaken the immune systems, laying the ground for the AIDS epidemics there.

Several years ago, I listened to wonderful (tragic, tho’) story by a woman who was being called an AIDS denier, an epithet more common now in the term anti-vaccers. She explained that the scientist who thought he had discovered the AIDS anti-bodies, later realized that the tests that were developed were not working, because he had made mistakes. When he tried to alert folks, he was drummed out of science and pilloried in the media.

Yet, exposure to the alleged virus was cause for concern, and among the gay community thousands of health gay men were offered the “cocktail”, which was a number of drugs on Big Pharma’s shelf of “not-working as designed”, and in a sense they threw the kitchen sink at the wall to see what would stick. The “cocktail” compromised their immune systems, and of course they did not die from AIDS, but from normal stuff the immune system could no longer handle. Big Pharma killed those folks.

There is something crude and illogical in the idea/fact that we can vaccinate 100 people, and only 40% will not get that year’s version of the ever evolving “flu”. Something is not right in the science.

Rudolf Steiner taught that childhood diseases existed to develop the immune system, by giving it work to do. So most modern children have weak immune systems because this process was not allowed, and to top it off, we end up giving huge numbers of vaccinations, further compromising the overworked underdeveloped natural health of many.

The often illogical explanations (provided by Big Pharma’s “public relations” firms) is a wonder. For example, there was a few years ago a measles outbreak, at the media center of which fingers were pointed at the local Waldorf School, because they were encouraged, by doctors familiar with Steiner, to not vaccinate.

So, if we concede – in name only, that the source outbreak was the Waldorf School, why did the vaccinated children from the same geographic locale get measles? And, why did not all of the not-vaccinate children at the school not get sick.

These illnesses do not take all who are allegedly exposed. Why?

Because the presence of the proliferating tiny organism is not the cause, but just another symptom. The whole has to be “sick” before the part gets such symptoms, which if we really appreciated the wisdom of the body, the whole is involved in elimination of industrial scale poisons in all our soil, air, water, food and medicine.

Industrial civilization is making us sick, by filling the collective environment with never before existing chemicals, on a scale that our bodies were never evolved to handle.

Unfortunately, human health must – for the moment – suffer illness and death as a by-product of the accumulation of wealth and power.

Is there a Hoax?

Yes, and no. I use this term to describe our spiritual moment: the Mystery Rite of the plandemic-Pandemonium Reboot.

Many, who methodically observed the roll-out of the pandemic idea in the media, were/are aware that the whole narrative was propelled rapidly and with purpose. Though these next individuals were thought worthy, we were faced with all manner of “alleged” “experts”, explaining what was happening, and yet not being in agreement.

We’ve been the recipients of a lot of sizzle science, covering over very little steak.

Very early on, I wrote and expected that the hysterical (a good story beats the truth all the time) media, would ask politicians what were they doing to fix this, as if any politician was competent, and or responsible. As expected, many variations of crazy with fear, or actual thinking, arose – not just nations, but subdivisions of nations ran around doing very different things.

In my family in ‘60’s, our father noticed that “public relations” was absorbing advertising, such that lies were preferred to the truth. Lying in advertising has been the new normal for a long time.

The first big clue I got was when the Plandemic idea, and Plague of Corruption book showed up, I noticed that not only did those stories – in the form offered – disappear suddenly, but social media was immediately filled to the brim with personal attacks on the author. I wondered, what did she say that drew such a reaction?

The smoking gun? Patents.

Enormous wealth and power comes with convincing folk that they now have to live into the future in the face of an inescapable deadly disease, needing “vaccinations” that are not being tested, or peer reviewed, with further plans to create an electronic card, which will produce a cashless society, and the health information of the card-holder. All our civil liberties will depend on how well we conform, given that all that are exposed are now labeled carriers of death.

Not just civil liberties are at risk, but the lives of our children’s dreams are being eaten by darkness in thought and action.

Yes, go to a party unmasked. Then many of those who were present were tested, using a test that is not an actual scientific test for the “alleged disease” but for a theoretical by-product, which is already in folks who have had a “flu” vaccine in the last ten years.

For a while, tested folk were called “cases”, because they were tested. They were not symptomatic either, although the seasonal flu is still around trying to detoxify us. Lately these same folk are being called “infected”.

Everywhere one lifts up one of the rocks in the narrative, a bunch of weird idea flora and fauna appear.

For example: the primary locus in China, from which the pandemic narrative was birthed, was one of the most polluted cities in China. It was also the among the first serious roll outs of 5G electromagnetic radiation. Early reports pointed to upper respiratory failures, a common phenomena of this illness/flu cycle. Yet, we blame the “bug”, not the bad air, and the frequent habit of smoking cigarettes.

Now, if we want to be scientific, and avoid rumors, we need certain facts that will not be forthcoming from the Chinese. In the case of every death, we needed to know the vaccine history, as well as all the other aspects of the person who died. We need autopsies as well. Why?

Other wise we get flooded (as we did) with conflicting accounts, whose main media impact began to be organized around the assumed narrative, not the truth. The press demanded answers, and the politicians pretended they had them. None of those folk are scientists, so we then need the priests of science to advise, and appear on television.

Particular already existing entities were important: WHO, or the World Health Organization, and the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On the sidelines, perhaps coaching, the FDA, or Food and Drug administration.

These organizations have an unwarranted reputation. Henry Kissinger said that if you wanted to know how to be successfully political, spend a few years in an academic department at a university. Eisenhower not only warned about the military industrial complex, but also the seduction of our universities by money.

As happens with most “politicians”, to rise in power requires very flexible morals. All those above organizations, WHO, CDC, and FDA, are politicized over issues of funding, advancement, and which scientific narrative you a willing to compromise.

These are the same organizations who have been giving mere lip-service to the poisons in the soil, air, food, water, and medicines. You do not cross money, and keep getting grants while doing dubious research in genetics and such.

Businesses lie. Government officials lie. Representatives of the above organizations conform to an existing narrative, otherwise they don’t rise in position and wealth.

If I switch gears, and go full spiritual, I’d have to bring in the idea of the evolution of consciousness.

There are also two or three rules I was taught recently: If something happens, it has been approved from the spiritual heights to their deeps. Everyone is the right person in the right place at the right time. And, my personal favorite: Everyone gets just enough rope by which to hang themselves.

The main element of the evolution of consciousness aspect is that the typical developmental trial – of this epoch – involves the potential birth of a free moral capacity. Each biography is involved in the individual facing moral questions, for which their tradition, or social rules, no longer supply an easy answer.

Each biography is a composition, a work of art. This moment we are enduring allows the formation of quite individualized moral riddles, each one getting unique problems to resolve out of their own thinking. For billions to face such trials creates a social/political world on fire, conflict everywhere, and nowhere to hide.

From the point of view of the Mystery, these private exercises in free moral thinking are to be inventive. There are no moral absolutes. Just the puzzle, followed by another, and then another. Event and Aftermath, event and aftermath, follow by more of the same – details are here (which is long): https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/09/27/earth-motherholy-mother-and-the-mystery-rite-of-the-plandemic-pandemonium-reboot/

If you can appreciate that the wild is the Mother. Chaos is the Mother. Chance and Fortune are the Mother. We can notice that while there is not a successful hoax, so much as it becomes the means by which She slows the whole world down, and wakes it up. Rogue Weather. The Four Horsemen. The Gate of Death.

All of this drama – an unimaginable Rite – involving the plandemic being overrun by Her, is the quality of Pandemonium. Run too fast, fall down go boom. The dying and becoming of “Western” Civilization is scary amazing as social art.

She has the whole world in His Hands. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/04/19/she-has-the-whole-world-in-his-hands/

We, individually, have a lot of choices-personal. Including the nature of the narrative we accept as explaining this plague of chaos and mystery.

Some years ago, when I was writing my “The Art of God – an actual theory of Everything”, I discovered/observed what I labeled the primal paradox: From the point of view of the Mystery, existence is perfect, which perfection includes the apparent imperfection that human beings seek to heal.

One final dangerous tale: Early on I read of the situation (from several sources) that a number of elderly were dying of the “covid” thing in northern Italy. However, that area had a strong tradition of doing autopsy’s, and reported no evidence of such a “bug” among people whose health is already compromised, and were dying of complications of those conditions, while having a normal flu.

It wasn’t very long before “authorities” everywhere were skipping doing an autopsy, and if there were any flu-like symptoms, the death was attributed to the “virus”.

In a world overloaded with poisons, the path that was taken was to produce masks, social distancing, isolate in place, loss of jobs and human contact, … why are we surprised that all this stress on top of the general stress of the Trump-confusion, made this a very bad flu season … except, materialistic medicine does not admit the role of stress, sensitivity, will to live, and weakened immune systems.

It is simpler to blame a bug, rather than accept responsibility for the poisoning the Life Sphere of the whole Planet.

Welcome to the Third Millennium.

Healing Broken Dreams

Healing Broken Dreams

My first born has asked his 80 year old father to say some words about the social political future of Americans. He didn’t do this just because I am his father, or he my son, we do this together as American Citizens … and the fact that his father has written a great deal about these riddles. Books, essays, videos, … more than a hobby. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/citizenship-and-modern-politricks/

While he was asking me to participate with him, and at least one other, certain particular ideas arose in my heart’s mind, … let me start there …

Americans do not need to get the cooperation of political parties in order to exercise their collective powers, as the actual Sovereign authority, for even the existence of local and national aspects of government is rooted in our Consent. It is clearly time to no longer Consent.

The powers the government has were temporarily given to them by us, and we have the right to take them back, and do a do-over reboot of the whole sordid business, whenever we want. Government works for us, or it ought to. Clearly the present day political powers serve what I call the Lords of Finance, and not the American People.

These Lords need us as workers and consumers, and our children as cannon fodder in their Endless Wars. Their bought and paid for political operatives rule the legislative branch, and it is their dreams that get made into laws, not ours.

Folk – waking up to this situation – can whine and kvetch and go all postal in social media, yet accomplish nothing because they don’t quite appreciate that the first word of the present Constitution is “We”.

In one of my books, as a subtitle, I wrote: “Why play by the rules when the game is already fixed?”

The actual battlefield is not a protest, or a voting booth, or lobbying the legislature in order to hope they will at least get one or two things right. The battlefield is the public conversation. The ideas.

“We” can’t be stopped from active participation in free and open source conversations on … what?

In other places in my writing I have urged folk to declare victory and throw a party. As long as “we” conceive of us ordinary citizens as “ruled”, we miss the point. We “rule”, they don’t.

When this question was first brought to me, I had been working for a while on the idea-mystery of the 9th Amendment to the Constitution: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

For context it will also be useful to also remember the 10th Amendment, both of which are from the Original Bill of Rights: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

“We the People …” … “do ordain and establish” … begins the Constitution, and the words “retained” and “reserved” by “the people” ends it.

However, this level of citizen power has to be seized and exercised. We seize and exercise it when we change the conversation, among ourselves, … among our many different kinds of Folk.

So, given the poetic title: “Healing Broken Dreams”, if we declare victory and throw a party, we also have to recognize that everyone gets to go to this party. If you – the reader – become part of a group renewing our Civil Liberties, those equal rights need to be formed among personal conversations at which black or white, gay or straight, religious or not, red or blue, … all get to participate togther.

Only we can work out the unwarranted divisions foisted upon us all.

The divisions forced upon us by the Lords of Finance, which were based in fear of the different “other”, can only become healed from one heart to another. No law changes the heart. We, the sovereign citizen, do that.

The content of the shared conversation is our hopes and dreams. We give legal structure to that conversation by rooting it in the ideas of the 9th and 10th Amendments observation that not all rights have been enumerated.

Such a party of parties, not protests, self educates … by imagining the rights not enumerated, and yet ours to assert.

We dream America. We sing Her Darkness and Her Light. We dream America, and America Dreams Us.

Next I am going to list some of my dreams of what the next grant of power will assert, while we engage in the business of abandoning the first grant, as clearly proven to be no longer unworkable.

9th Amendment Powers/Rights (I’m of the view that these ideas should scare the pants off of the established “order”)

No non-human entity (such as a corporation) is to be treated as a person before the law, until such time as we recognize the Planet as a person before the Law.

No one can own the Planet, although all of “us” can recognize that acts of stewardship are needed to care for not just the Mother, but the environments in which human beings live.

No government official can earn more than the basic income available to all, nor can any such official have medical care that is not also available to all.

The whole income tax set of laws are to be abandoned, given the degree of corruption living within those laws. Since everyone gets basic income, and free medical services, there is no need for the coagulation/concentration of wealth in certain individuals. Nobody needs two houses, four cars, eighteen dogs and a private country estate.

Human rights are superior to “property” rights. As needed, unused properties are to be taken by eminent domain, and put to use for the homeless. We are not just stewards of the Life Sphere of the Planet, but we are also stewards of human development.

The Banking and Finance Industries are stripped of their controls over the creation of currency, and debt currency is to be replaced with credit based currency.

With regard to rights of privacy and information, here is a proposed Bill of Information Rights, to be considered for inclusion in the Second American Constitution, should the American citizenry have the boldness and courage to take up such a task:

“It is the right of every citizen to sufficient information to be able to make informed decisions.

“It is the right of every citizen to a sphere of informational privacy, inviolate from the intrusions of the State or commercial and employment interests. This sphere is to be defined by the individual citizen themselves. Citizens who widely construct their private sphere of information rights must expect the normal consequences that flow from such an act (such as limitations on possible forms of employment).

“No government or private institution may withhold information needed by a free citizenry for the exercise of its duties. The Congress shall pass laws mandating appropriate and severe punishment for the violation of this right of information. Likewise, the Congress shall make laws mandating appropriate and severe punishment for violations of the right of privacy.

“When any citizen believes his or her information rights have been violated, the Courts must make inquiry, without cost to the citizen. In order to not overburden the Courts, the Office of Informational Ombudsman will be created by the Congress, which will mediate all preliminary inquires into requests, and violations, that arise from the exercise of these rights.

“Where a conflict arises between the right of privacy and the right to information, the Courts will seek the balancing principle in the Platonic ideal of the Good. For the purposes of this bill of information rights no non-living entity, such as a corporation, or other institution or organization, shall be deemed a person or a citizen.”

To boldly go where no one has gone before.

Obviously the present nature of society has a lot of inertia and momentum – does not change course easily. If we truly understood the Mystery Rite of the plandemic-Pandemonium Reboot, which appears with the dying and becoming of “Western” Civilization, we would know that the Mystery already has woven into our shared social&political circumstances a great deal of chaos.

The gardener weeds. The gardener tills the soil. The gardener plants and waters the seeds. And, each Spring and Autumn, the gardener celebrates these riches with rites of gratitude.

This essay is an Idea. That Idea will only live if the deeds of the reader participate, entirely out of their own wisdom.

The result is gained, as the “conversation” shifts to a more spiritually honest interchange of Ideas. There are no right or wrong answers, just the conversation.

Given the communication potential of social media, it will be helpful if various individuals support the conversation with open source type software.

Back in the days of the Founding, there existed various kinds of unwritten social contracts. For the ordinary we get such ideas as: work hard, play by the rules, and mind your own business. As part of the nature/style of the event of forming a constitution, the ratification meant to display – in action – the idea that all signers were agreeing to be bound by the same rules of law.

We thought we were getting rid of an aristocracy of blood, when in truth the avarice of many led us quickly to being ruled by an aristocracy of money.

Given the present day over-reaching of government into our lives, via the excuse of the plandemic, it is crucial that those who want to create in the present chaos, take the time to seek the depths of knowledge of the truth of whether or not we are getting good science, or just another con job by entities who always place their self interest ahead of the interests of the whole people. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/10/22/covid-confusion/
