most of you on this forum is likely illuminated, and just as I, have found out how the world works, I wonder how you feel about the masses, all those people who find it difficult to see the reality and how this reality works. and just as casually dismisses everything as conspiracy theories.? do they just dont care, or is it that they dont have quriosisty, or whats the problem!!!
Fortunately, a lot of people are “waking up”, as they say. I believe the Internet (as the new Gutenberg Press) is driving much of this. That said, history has shown us that during times of great change, there is simultaneously great stress and strain. The old order is collapsing, but they’re not going down without a fight, which is why we’re seeing so much disorder in the world.
The term “conspiracy theory” was actively pushed as a pejorative by the intelligence agencies (i.e. the establishment) to dissuade people from asking too many questions. Now they’re pushing “fake news” in the same way.
It won’t work this time, but it might delay the waking process temporarily, as it sows discord and doubt in the face of obvious truths. After all, some news/information is patently (and provably) false.
Part of the reason why we started MMM is to assist (in our own small way) people who ARE waking up to be able to sift through all this stuff and separate truth from falsehood. Not that we have all the answers, but we do have enough experience to be able to contribute and help.
I think we do anyway.
Then again we might be crazy. I’m content with either scenario, as I’ve reconciled the contradictions and paradoxes in my own psyche and, more importantly, I’m comfortable with it. I’ve accepted the certainty of uncertainty in this wild, wacky thing we call life, the universe, and everything, and I hope to impart that – to be an example, a guide if you will – to anyone willing to listen and take the trip.
“Embrace the suck”, as they say. Once you’ve done that, life becomes a magical and mysterious ride. As the late, great Bill Hicks used to say:
