So far I’ve only mentioned the person as the bearer of the illusionary world of ideas, thoughts. It can be said for a person that he is not what he is, but what he thinks he is. “I think, therefore I am” According to my understanding this statement is incorrect. It is a suspicious for me, because it is heavily promoted. As soon as something is being promoted a lot in this present-day world it has some intention that is not enlightenment of the masses. Likewise, and vice versa. I remember when I met a gentleman who owned the zeolite license. So he told me once, that he had to get urgently, some plant, because of his healing properties. When I asked him if he had tried it or who tried it, he said he did not know anyone, only information he had about it that it was banned by health organizations in England.
And I’m close to such a way of looking at the system, because if this system gives you or promotes something I’m not sure how good it is for you.
Again, I get off the topic. Thinking and being is not very compatible, so the famous philosophical upper statement is incorrect. The believer is also a person in full sense of the word, the only difference for me, is that a person identifies with ideas that have more touching points with reality. Person can also be someone who adopt certain beliefs through logical thinking and conclusions. A typical believer, is a word we mostly use to describe a religious person who believes in a pile of dogmas and doctrines that have none or very little connection with reality, without any reasonable re-examination. Therefore, according to my vision, belief can be based on deliberation and dogma. If you have adopted a part about dualism and relativism, then you can explain this in that way. The believer who reviews the information compares them to their positions he previously has adopted and thus creates a new attitude or position. How true this position is, it does not matter at the moment, while the believer dogmatic takes over the position as it is served to him (like the HDZ / SDP parliamentarians).
Being dogmatic and not a big shame. I say that, because I’ve been to the point lately, now also, in some things dogmatic. I’m looking for interesting people, and when I find that one, I am reviewing him or her for a long period of time. When after a while I fully accept that he or she knows so much more than me, I stop reviewing him and starting to believe what he says, even though he has completely disagreed with my previous attitude. If mine and his are different, then I believe in his.
Many people today put things in this order, also in places they should not. They trust some people without limitation, to whom I would not let keeping sheeps, although it is their primary profession.
It’s okay that there are one or two people you rely on, believing them whatever they say, but if there is an entire ideology or doctrine that governs your attitudes, then I can tell you that you are in problem. Faith in others and faith in yourself is always inversely proportional. I’ll explain.
What happens when you go to a doctor and he tells you that you are very sick and need treatment? Though you may not feel very bad you will accept treatment because you believe in doctor expertise. But you do not really trust him, yet you do not know anything about medicine, so you think that he know this much better.
So the ignorance is substantially important, and belief is his constant companion. Beside fact that about health / illness you know nothing, you have no idea what the doctor knows, how much he knows, and where he gets his knowledge. We believe they know, because someone says they do. If we could evaluate their knowledge then it would mean that we also know something about medicine, but then we would not need a doctor in the first place – we alone would treat ourselves.
Therefore, if we look at the doctor as a profession that earns money on the treatment of people it is in their absolute economic interest that we know as little as possible about health, about how the body works and similar things. The less you know, the power of doctors is greater (inversely proportional).
I do not intend to deal with the issues of medicine and health because it is not my primary interest. I mention this only as an example, because actually all parts of illusions have exactly the same interest, for us to be stupid layman, ignoramuses who do not know even to cross the street if they are not said how to cross it.
This is how lawyers, economists, politicians deal with “great science”, and in every question they answer is like that: “You do not know, you have not been educated.” They convince us in the story of how we are ignorant and that we really need those parasitic caste personas to lead our lives in our name ask God in what direction. And unfortunately, they convinced us in that story.
That is why nobody knows anything about the true nature of the legal system, economy, business, and politics. Even the vast majority of those who have so-called “Diplomas” do not understand what they are doing, so they themselves belong to the layman population. Lawmakers do not understand that they are clergy in civilians, dealing with spelling. Economists do not know how money comes into circulation. Politicians do not dwell on the fact that the state they lead does not exist, and the “people” who have chosen them are just a bunch of wraiths called legal persons.
Maybe you wonder what now? Should we know all and never trust anyone ever again.
Of course not. No one knows everything and it is perfectly normal to believe someone who “knows” just for how long. How long will you go to a doctor who does not help you or helps you very little? How many times will you go to an attorney who cannot help you anything, just ties the case? How many times will you choose the HDZ / SDP (democrats/republicans) before we realize that they are for nothing? How much before we understand that these people do not know, or do not want to help us?
It is not a shame to bang your head in the wall if we do not see the exit. But with every strike, we understand where the exit is not, and at one moment we will find the door and open it. Bumping into the wall constantly in the same place, defines foolishness, because it is clear that the exit is not there. You should try it on a different side. The definition of madness / stupidity is to go every time in the same direction and expect that destination will be changed. How? By itself?
Apart from trusting everyone, just because they themselves have no idea, people never or very rarely believe to oneself. They rather walk from one “authority” to another, expecting them to solve what they themselves “cannot / do not want to.” In that area champions are people who run every day or every Sunday in the church. The Priesthood is a special caste experiment of hocus pocus experts that you cannot even ask about the meaning of what they do, because it is not for lay people, but only for clerics. You just have to believe it. Religion is a special kind of dogmatically conditioned belief where the right knowledge does not exist because it is all fabrication. Dogma creates an anchor in consciousness and the longer it stays in that place, it becomes more and more burdened into consciousness and it is more difficult to remove it later. It has been scientifically proven that constant repetition create neuronal pathways in the brain that work automatically through a hardware-software circuit. And though people do not even trust politicians or doctors and priests, automation takes them where it is known – where the legs go.
