I am not going to write about quantum mechanics, string theory, or relativity. Rather something I have watched and observed with the wide variance of life between a slum or favela on the planet and the ways of the super wealthy. It is as if the habits and style of the social construct are engrained, and then moving between them either vertically or horizontally is not really common or accepted. It doesn't mean anything is right or wrong. Instead, the worlds are very different, and unless there is some horrific tragedy or a need, the two probably won't come together
A good example is the caste system in parts of the planet. A similar social construct would be the class system of Europe and the united states. I don't know why in humanity, someone has to consider themselves better or superior to another? I blame this ideal on mark twain and his writing leading me to go out and see and experience the world with his quote about travel:
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." – mark twain
What I am struggling to blend or understand is how each spot on the planet ideally wants love, yet, how the problems with the human condition seem to muddy or blind people from not only themselves but their fellow man. Perhaps this is what spirituality and love beyond some religious structure and legalism are about. This is what I am pondering while trying not to kill myself with an idea where I am up in the air for the next few days.
I guess it is a mystery? I was explaining the "woo woo room" ideas we are working on for controlled environments for humans. The idea that we even need them sort of saddens me, yet, as when I go out into the remote of nature and come back into an urban space, I see just how many goofy things humans are doing – seems odd if not insane. Yet, it is considered normal and given plenty of air tie on the sensationalism of news.
Man is indeed a great tool maker and very resourceful. What I worry is that he hasn't' taken the time to solve his own internal issues and this will simply keep the bias and the gap between the top and the bottom growing at an increasing rate.
I forget what year it was that I stopped chasing the gerbil mill of consumerism, and how it felt like blinders came off my eyes and I realize how little I needed, and how much happier in my heart and soul I am. Yet, when I look around, it seems that each level is excellent at setting up a series of rules. Perhaps it is a bit like legalism in religion? But it has people coming in strata's that seem to provide sedimentation to one's heart and soul.
Excuse my rambling. It is hard typing away with the noise of news in every public space I have been in. It is noise and talking heads rambling on with poor audio quality and just chatting away…
Humans are great at filling their space with lots of noise. I don't know why. The only thing I can think of is that there is a large portion of society that is terrified to be with themselves.
and to think, "the robots are coming!" I can see the advertisements – "never be alone again!
I guess that is what I ask God a lot each day, "why are people so afraid?"
