TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Truth as Entertainment


ImageThe past couple of years i've of course been doing the 'truth scene' of conspiracy theory documentaries, whistleblower interviews, etc. I learned about 911, alien races on Earth, secret technological developments,, you name it, people are covering it. There are independent researchers like Michael Tsarion and David Icke putting their works out there and they're surrounded by hoards of radio hosts or just plain idiots with a camera who like to put all kinds of interviews with 'people in the know' out there. More and more, however, as this alternative truth movement grows and the interviews grow in number, i find that the interviewers grow ever more tedious. Why are there so many people who can't even speak English properly? What's wrong with these people who can't be civil, fall over syntax, trip over their own sentences, etc?
I've concluded that there is a link between their inability to talk normally and their immaturity in other mental functions.


ImageOne notices that the great researchers themselves don't cope with such problems much at all, it's mainly the wannabes sucking off their teats. The interviewers often seem like nice guys and gals, at first at least, but it seems to me, more and more, that their role isn't to function as go-between so that the masses get information; it's to function as go-between so that the masses are offered information entertainment and it's in a way that's comfortable to them: crude, impolite, and devoid of sophistication.

Cultivating ones mind should be about maturing that mind. It's about focusing on things that matter. One can be a connaisseur of wine, drugs, or gothic culture but is one sophisticated about simply communicating? Can you think? Can you even think? It seems a tall order, based on how few people seem to be able to string words and sentences together without constantly tripping over themselves. But how can you come to grasp any principle in life at all if your mind is so unsophisticated that the words can't form into sentences properly, so the sentences can form into ideas? If you're tripping over your words all of the time, what kind of ideas can you ever grasp, let alone build yourself? These people, interviewers talking to people who do possess great knowledge and sophistication, maybe should come to understand that there's a very good reason why one can, at all, achieve understanding and learning and it's not about running around like an idiot collecting data; it's about culture. Not some shallow culture that's a dime a dozen, however; with true sophistication and culture can come true insight and learning. But if your brain is like a Pentium I with software dating back to Commodore 64, how will you ever compete with a well-functioning data-processing instrument that breezes through bs and culls madness from truth in microseconds? What you can learn from the sophisticated researcher who's uncovered these great secrets that inspire and show you how deficient you are, may not be the secret itself but rather what your mind is capable of. That is, if you finally get it working properly.

So one notices that the great researchers usually don't trip over their words all the time. Now is that because they're smart? That's one of the copouts of the lazy student: i don't do as well as the other because, well, HE's smart (i.e. no competing with that). But David Icke started out as a !@#$ football player. So where did he get his smarts? I'm noticing that the wannabes can't speak properly and that people with substance, who have truths to offer that really matter, tend to be able to hold a thought and NOT trip over their own sentences all of the time. And i don't think it's about data. That means that acquiring the data that they offer, like the dvd's that researchers put out there to make ends meet, won't really ever change your life.
So the funny thing is that these researchers, diligently and sincerely trying to educate others and 'spreading the word', HOPE to get their message across but fail miserably and constantly. And maybe it's because the message, ultimately, isn't about data; it's about culture and sophistication.

ImageIn this interview with Mel Fabregas, notorious for not even pronouncing English properly and screwing with language to the degree that it really distracts from the content of the interview, Jay Weidner explains how he got started on his 'road to truth'; he found this one book, full of ancient insights, and he read it again and again; after that, he researched the HUNDREDS of words referenced in the book. Words. Repetition. Conditioning. His story was not one of acquiring data, it was the story of a man reconditioning his mind. It's the story of acquiring focus and sophistication.
Such men THEN go on to do their own research and acquire new truths and insights and share these with others but the data that's then shared distracts from the SUBTLE [i.e. only perceived through sophistication] fact that truthsense isn't about HEARING truths; it's about LISTENING to them.

ImageThe mind is capable of more than mimicry and responding according to conditioned protocols. A mature mind is about more than REaction or reurgitating thought. It is capable of independent and appropriate action and thought. The sophisticated mind listens to everyone speak but is then capable of recognizing the lies that are also out there. We all hear but few listen. Few distinguish. Few are mature. The data/knowledge that researchers like Jordan Maxwell bring forth is appropriate and needs to be taken into account, but even the great researchers make mistakes and/or lack data and we're all at an individual level of hearing/understanding. That is part of who we are and of what our personal options are. Our level of maturity determines what level of truth we can embrace/hear.
In similar fashion the mature mind doesn't have to listen, doesn't have to obey. The mature mind is independent. It is not a slave mind. And herein lies freedom. Isn't Jesus always quoted as having said that the truth shall set you free? Truth? A little truth? Truth sometimes? Certain truths? How about a mind that is able to appreciate new truths all of the time? A mind that can HEAR and appreciate a new truth when it comes by? Truth as a way of life because your way of using your brain has made that brain capable of hearing truth. We may have to listen to a lot of people talk to acquire certain appropriate data but without sophistication we only acquire information overload. Sophistication in truth is a tao, it is the lifetime of respect for truth. This is the 'truth' that liberates and leads to real hearing. The life of truth liberates. It has little to do with data.

ImageSo is your mind just playing or is it actually producing worthwhile thoughts that support a free and appropriate life? Do you hear truths or can you also listen to them? Conditioning the mind to truth, this respect for truth as a way of life, has to do with little things. Will a 'great truth' somehow bring forth a flood of little truths and transform your life? But what about all of the little lies in your life that you have embraced? Truth is a choice and the little lies that you have chosen make up your choice. Just like truth can be a way of life, allowing lies [big, small, doesn't matter then] to exist within the sphere of your life is a choice. One allows a dam of lies to build up that keeps truths at bay, the other invites a flow of truth in. The truthsense is the flow of truth in the sophisticated mind. This flow of truth isn't just a pretty idea, it's about neurons in the brain working in synch. It's about ideas that don't contradict each other, because they've been held to the light and weighed against all you know. This work, however, must be done, the neural pathways set, the mind conditioned, before your mind can assimilate more/great truth.
It's not just about the choice lies or truth, one being more or less the equal to the other; lies build up and create a dam, a rigid construct with only as much sophistication as your lies offer it. It's quite boring in the eyes of one through whose mind flow truths in balance with the cosmos. Lies are petty in comparison. And immaturity isn't quaint or cute in an adult. The slave mind that can only hear and REact isn't appealing to the mature independent thinker, able to appreciate and acquire/embrace great cosmic truths and insights (that the immature mind can only dream of possessing).
Image
Immature minds dabble at truth. They gossip about it. They play with new data, like going on to the next computer game or tv show. It has nothing to do with maturing or gaining sophistication. So you collect data, but if you don't use the data you've collected to weigh it against all other data already at your disposal, what does it serve you more than a cigarette? If you desire more sophistication, you are not seeking to gain new seeds of knowledge, mainly; you are seeking clues with which you can weed out lies and discrepancies. When you have weeded out the madness, only then will new data serve growth. And then the mature mind grows to flow in truth. It can also speak eloquently, but not because it is complicated or smart but because it is unobstructed by lies and inconsistencies. When truth flows words become eloquent. It's about conditoning the mind to sanity because one has refused, in principle, to accept insanity in ones own mind. If one is then 'smart', it's because one has foresworn stupid. Genetics doesn't come into it.

if knowledge = life, infotainment = cancer


With the age of internet, knowledge is at everyone's fingertips. Knowledge is important, it offers freedom and independence, essential aspects of preparation.
HOWEVER...
knowledge is but step 1 of a 5-step process of change!

1: knowledge
2: understanding
3: wisdom
4: humanity
5: mastery

To stay stuck in step one and think that information alone will offer change or independence is just part of wishful thinking and desillusionment. Knowledge without understanding or wisdom is like money in the hands of a fool; if given money the fool will just dig an expensive hole for himself or waste it all and change nothing at all in his or her life. Information, like money, is just static in the hands of someone not ready for it.

Nowadays, in part because of the internet, the people who've invested years or decades into research (people like David Icke, Jordan Maxwell, Tsarion, etc.) and who offer their knowledge and insights to a greater public, have reached many thousands who get mesmerized by what they have to offer but that's as far as they get.

As i myself have reached a higher level of understanding, part of the following wisdom has been that actually having this information and understanding and feeling the need to share it with others, attracts people who are entertained by it. Part of the wisdom then becomes understanding that most people aren't ready to move beyond knowledge to understanding, let alone to wisdom. The DANGER is that one allow such people to not just hold one back but to actually invite them into one's intimate circle, setting one up for the destruction that comes from jealously and other ego-centered madness.

The wisdom that is acceptance of other people's (self-inflicted) limitations isn't about cynicism or any such negative influence, it's just about allowing others to go their own way, even when it means one must leave one's circle of former acquaintances behind.

infotainment


As i argue in the posts under PSYCHOLOGIE, increasing mental health and ability, the complacency that is infotainment might well be caused by physical factors involving the brain organ's inability to allow normal functioning.

People show INTEREST. They can follow the logic and sense of certain matters. However, following through on what interests them requires a focus that they fail to muster.

This concept in and of itself flies in the face of common cultural assumptions that complacent people are that way because of character or morality issues.
The concept that CHEMICALS, however, can determine much has been with us at least as long as since the Romans all developed lead poisoning from their pipes. More recently during Hitler Germany concentration camp prisoners were given flourides to keep them docile.
