Critical Thinking’s research and analysis revealed the limitations of abstraction which is how most people derive their understanding of the world – abstraction is how we’ve been trained to manage complexity, ie. if we are considering a complex issue or event, we’re wont to isolate the elements we can grasp or appreciate to focus on these to derive our opinions or views; often what we choose to abstract to justify our world view is determined by our ideological perspectives. Thus we ignore “inconvenient” evidence or information as irrelevant or wrong because it doesn’t “fit” with our world view. Furthermore, we tend to dismiss information from sources outside our cultural comfort zone, ie. from those with whom we feel we have little in common.
In the last post, I referred to how we’ve been trained out of our human essence to become aspiring consumers – in other words, we’ve been isolated from our fundamental context as individuals interacting with other individuals to form human bonds of common interest mandated by universal consciousness – we have lost the middle ground; as Laurie Anderson explains:
Higher Truth, posted on 1st November 2019, explains how the Satanic (selfish) political economy wants our souls. The process of seduction began with a vengeance in the early 20th century (like so many strands to build the new world order). Adam Curtis’s six part series, Century of the Self, explains how we have been transformed from humans with needs into “consumers” with desires for shiny toys and trappings to supplement our waning spirituality.
As family, community and social cohesion was fragmented, we became vulnerable to the advertising witches and warlocks conjuring fantasy lifestyles into existence. In the 1950s, the sublimation of our human essence accelerated with the introduction of television and consumer advertising to create dissatisfaction with “now” and “what is”; we embraced a seductive future of what could be within the advertising fantasy that used sophisticated psychological and occult techniques to isolate us from spirit, ie. universal consciousness. Not that many people had sufficient understanding to realise what was happening.
The views and wisdom of older generations were dismissed as old fashioned and of no value in the new technocratic age; thus we fell under the spell of the advertising and marketing witches and warlocks. Today, virtually all (including social) media is driven by marketing and advertising. The “products” they are promoting are politics, economics, wars, hoaxes, scams and hedonism, ie. the works of Satan or selfishness.
Critical Thinking at the Free University has just published the 7th and final iteration of its accumulated research and analysis of political economy, How we live – who rules, how and why?, which explains:
– we are at a crossroads and faced with a choice; the choice will differ depending on where people are on their personal journey of discovery. Many have yet to reach the limits of critical thinking in exploring political economy to realise that there lies a world of possibilities beyond;
– events are coming to a head; dramatic changes to the fabric of global society are accelerating. The “powers that shouldn’t be” are preparing for the Cull.How we live – Who rules, how and why? at archive.org
Below is the Abstract of the final iteration:
