Philosophy and us.


    I finally get to write this final exam essay, hence finishing the last of my finite days in philosophy. That is about the limit of finalities I can include in an opening sentence.
As I reflect upon this I see myself not looking at the reflection that is typing this. Instead of pondering his thoughts I shall instead ponder the meanings and ramifications of other peoples, who thought. For what easier thing could there be than to know the thoughts of a dead man. Maybe the only thing easier is the math of our natural world and how all things are bound and defined by its pure logic. Descartes’, a man of such paranoid skepticism that he considered briefly the idea of evil demons making a false world about him like most if not all great thinkers, was maddeningly sane. He conceived the idea of math, to absolutely define the answer of god’s existence, as true. The tool of science, being math as the language of the natural world and why he, the skiddish and often fearful genius Descartes’ was smart enough to count to 5.
All kidding aside this is an amazing turning point for thought. The fact that it simultaneously proves and disproves itself as equally true and not equally false is spectacular. While skeptical thought generally leaves a loop whole for escape, this does not. The only loop whole in the consideration of this figure of 2+3= life the universe and everything is good and true and god rocks, is doubt. Which is also the only thing that the believers in Christian polytheism can not have. So if they doubt the natural science of math they also doubt the existence of the creator that made the world that fits within the numbers they were given. Henceforth proving that science and god are one in the same thing. I find it mind bottling to consider a time when humans would kill one another under the flag of a loving deity of peace and forgiveness, for discovering or unveiling the wonders of this world and our universe. Especially with the argument that they are heretical godslayers, and blasphemers for doing so.
I do understand why though, I just don’t like it. Science is not controlled by anyone but the creation entity. Church is a system of control that has no hold on its creator in a real sense. They only control the idea of a creator, who they humbly serve and directs them to make the world be as they say it is.
If people not in the control of this regime give freely the information of the universe how can the creator exist as they described? Why is it that what we were told is different from what we can see? We are starting to see what it is. To know without asking what those who would control us through our hearts don’t know at all. I wont tell you what it is. You already know, or you haven’t allowed yourself to know. Telling you would be meaningless. I could very easily list in one sentence the essence of life and understanding. But these are just words. You will , or will not know without being told. I joyful for those who have read this and smiled with recognition. I am excited for those that will find it at some other point. They will chuckle and think of this. The rest will say I am a fool, or obfuscating to create a sense of mysterious knowledge I cannot possibly back up. It will change nothing. So I wont go on about control scenarios, and we know how this turned out, from the church’s murdering fear, and controlling of the people and slavery of the minds of men and the bodies of women. We know the start of the story, the end is unknown, partially.
It is still going on at this very moment. As soon as the people are sleeping and lose their will to think and learn and see justice and honor as positive things worth dying to keep safe. When vigilance has been lost the beast may very well rescue them from the doom of knowledge and lead them happily into the darkness to resume its designs.

I encountered this just yesterday.
One of my many adventures led me through the world of military psychological warfare training, as well as the execution of its methods in Iraq and at home. While they use many tools not related to this paper I will say, It works. We have and will again cause people to think and do as we see fit by controlling their input of data to the world. My main focus will be the idea of truth and misinformation as a form of mind control. Wittgenstein’s ideas on language and how it is received and processed from sender to receiver shows clearly, that while we can decide to say something and another will hear the words. The meaning of those words can become a flexible puzzle of subtext and guided thought. So a question may in fact become a command in its own subtle way, “Could you find a piece of paper?” I am sure I could. But when asked of another, the receiver, in most cases will produce the piece of paper and hand it to the person. If the receiver is unwilling to answer, or produce paper. They may just tell the other, “No, I do not have any.” The question has still remained unanswered. While the action has demonstrated the answer, it was not what was asked and hence not the right answer in and of itself. Here in lies manipulation through language by passive coercion.
Now as to misinformation. This is the key to successful mind control. A friend had posted a one sided polling comment of political nature and asked the question. “ Do you agree that it is ok that Obama is skipping the memorial day ceremony to go on vacation in Chicago? Yes/No “ My first response to a dear old friend of mine being. “ How could I or anyone else make a decision like that ,when no real information has been given? I only see a comment with no facts that is designed to make you either agree that Obama is a bad leader for doing what you say he is. Or we are bad people for thinking it is ok for him to be a bad leader.” I Continued to the effect that if they waited one moment I would check his itinerary so we could look at this closer before committing ourselves to what most likely was a manipulation of fact, and henceforth untrue. They made jokes “Your people gonna call his people?” I said “no I will just check with his secretary. “ More chuckles. Long story short the source of all media and news regarding any and all actions of the administration are only given out as “official” by the office of the press secretary.

Since 1966 this information has been free for immediate release to the public as well as the press media, at the same time. The information is given to the public by strict format of facts as much as can be without any use of opinion about the actions being made. The actions that are intended as well as the subsequent results of those actions are available to all citizens of this nation including declassified actions of a top secret nature. When and where the VP and CIC are, or will be going and what they are intending to do.
I was laughed at and called a fool. One person, who acted as if they should pity the idiot asked if. I had never considered “ that I had been lied to? “This leads me back to my point.
Good old Wittgenstein made a incredibly long winded and circular chaotic statement in a shocking attempt to evolve the process of thought. The idea that for us to continue forward on any given subject or to communicate at all and understand what is said we must let go of skepticism to the degree the analytical thought process defines. That given no other factors to prove N is false, and it is consistent on all accounts with our understanding of the natural world, it then must be considered to not be Un-true.

We do not have to accept it as an absolute to believe in the truth of it. But we must have the truism there to stand on before any further ground can be made towards things more complicated than,”Am I here? ,Is this object, idea or statement real?” . It goes the same for my discussion of politics.
I made no new friends by pointing out that to assume a thing is untrue and then disseminate it to others is lying. If done in the hope of them also making negative judgments’ about another person it makes you the worst form of a liar. For using your friends trust against them and hence making liars out them as well. By your actions you create a world where even the people you love are lying, hurtful people that should not be listened to. Also, you are guilty and have caused those who put trust in you to be so as well. You have succeeded in violating your friends and family.
You have broken one of the very few clauses to the freedom of speech and assembly rules. That it is unlawful to by any means knowingly or willingly coerce a body of people towards aggression and displays of unrest. To disrupt the common peace with fraudulent information.
While this sounds great on paper it has more loop holes than the first ladies knitting project of old glory. But, they won’t know that. They won’t believe this letter if they see it, and wouldn’t believe it was true, Even if someone else told them it was. The believers will not have faith in the beliefs of those who are faithful to themselves and the world around them. So they will be lost in doubt and disbelief. But I am a merciful mortal, so I will jump from the merry go round of life and teach them the secret tribal dance of truth.
" You put your right thoughts in, you pull your right thoughts out,
Put your thoughts back in and ya shake em all about!
You do the Okey Dokey ( Both hands, BIG fisted THUMBS UP!) and you turn yourself about!
Thats what its all about!"

Believe it or not, this is totally not un-true.
