A mind deceiving the eyes
presented by a past image
the lens of make-belief is challenged
long I have asked
questions of what is true and real
questions to understand and serve
a bigger picture
What is true?
What is real?
questions to discern
trompe-l’œil, or the real
the power gained by designing
and controlling a story
most days I get to wonder
the difference between I and me
the difference between tragedy and comedy
the uncanny closer to the real
something I can feel
sensed and embodied
(as spiritual matter) not a dense
but vital matter for people starving
from a lack of conscientiousness
linked between desire
affection for the senses
thoughts begging for attention
belief businesses really hurt
reality always a hit
always in reach
the kind of life
you wanna live
what is the business of
helping others and doing good about?
though the correct way to go
last I looked we were all born with the right to be
and with such a knowing, people still go on fighing and killing
instead of living, loving, working, playing
the silent things no one dare speak
the conflation of value
with imaginary currency
though shame and guilt
are useful feelings
once mantracized are pathologized
“if I just love myself more”
everything will be alright
or are whores of the self loving sort cleaner
one thing made into another
through the power of an, as an is
love is love
care is care
though one often becomes the other
as labor delivers
one thing to the other
and so the wars are not about class
but who works and who pays
who pretends to be free
and who works as a slave
all inner and outer experiences await
in the life looking for you
awaits your work to bring it to be
with your own body and hands
Recently I attended a symposium at KHiO organised by OCA and OSLO PILOT in collaboration with IKT. The presentatoin shared the indigenous perspectiive on human rights: a right to a history, a right to a present, and a right to a future. These coherent principles struck me as wise in comparison to the polemical display of social justic warriorship.
That was an enlivening perspective to consider. One that seems highly valuable today, in servicing sincere questions about responsibility, trust, and values. In a world where people travel. In a world with wars and peace zones. In a world where the internet connects lives that would otherwise not know anything. In a world where not everything is possible, but more choices are available.
There’s a term adapted to the language today called: climate change. The words themselves point to a fact of life on earth: changing. Anyone simply asking questions is taken to be cast as challenging the legitimacy of the claims of climate change. How can someone who cares instead of dancing around parroting what everyone else is treated as heretics?
The concerns I have are about the loss of biodiversity and what are humans going to do about the gaps in understanding of nature is expressed in Ruisseau Holocene. Additionally, the Devonian period is a gaping hole of magnetic resonance knowledge. Ivar Giaever’s presentation and arguements about the causes and corrct courses of action around climate change are often erased to simultaneously favor the belief of the masses guided by politicans, who are not scientists, and the continual debaucharous behavior of the civilian.
Climate, miljø, atmosphere, environment. That is all the things that are around the body that effect the interior function within the body. I often wonder how much of the social chatter is created affective disorders through either cognitive dissonance. What would it look like for a moral compass to find a true north through the noise? To understand that, we always have to go within. Change is the most certain aspect of life is change. Within change, there are patterns. The window of data set viewing must be openly approached. We are past needing to fight about things and do the choices that create the reality we want to live in. Over-confidence in a single point of view, posits a view through an oculus when the nature of reality is holographic. From Oxford dictionary:
a round or eye-like opening or design, such as a circular window or an opening at the apex of a dome.
Conclusive story drawing has been well-articulated in the field of psychology as a form of cognitive bias. Whereas allegorical storytelling is more intriguing and filled with paradoxes serving as catalysts for creating. I fully understand and appreciate the subjective discomfort and anxiety of not knowing. There are nefarious lingering intentions shrouded in vague language and rote didacticism.
In this situation about the climate is often conjured notions of the cosmos or god, paranormal or extraterrestial. So one really has to look at whose vision is the anointed one. Personally, I think about responsibility, love, dignity, reverence, trust, and values creating an inner sense of fulfillment independent from the concept of an all seeing eye, god, or archetype. Though God as a monoastic or polytheistic notion, emanation or aura, felt too gradiose in comparison to the grounded sense of animism I sensed since I was quite young. Restrospectively, it’s easy to see a mythological persona can be used or applied to control populations, the ideas and the stories disseminated understandings that can lead to:
- life generation
- creating harmony among people otherwise prone to fighting
As concepts are malleable as even words arrive as forms within the reader or listener differenly as they may from the author or orator, the application of concepts determines the use and misuse, unless a shared sense of higher and deeper spiritual sovereignty is developed. Was it the fault of religion to give rise to people who abuse power? From my view, the responsibiity is always the hands of people; not some act of god. So when it comes to the Algorythmic Savior technocrats are programming, the very thing at stake is the human imagination, consciousness, and perhaps soul.
In the face of reality, we can see the repeated abdication of responsibility and complicity buttress these avenues for corruption to take place. Corruption also gives rise to other motives, and so in 2019, we see an acceptance and normalization of an increasing amount of life motives and expressions that would have been imprisoned or burned. Human life in certain regions has experienced sharp increases in individual freedom, and food availability, and has been fed media stories about moral and economic superiority without having the lived experience to back up the claims.
In thinking about what is true and real, or what is good as life-giving, there is the benefit to gain in approaching ideas to see their contents and results. The study of history can be a leading method of charting the course of the future with responsible choices for future generations to reap benefits instead of dire consequences for current missteps. Humans are continually at several intersections of moral, ethical, political, personal, and aesthetic choices. As people learn how to read the signs, and visual cues, and weigh their intuitive senses with critical thinking, a sense of moral compass can be retained.
