Illusive Peace in the World

Illusive Peace in the World  PDF Version

Any peace a person has is on the personal level. Peace in the world, according to historical evidence as well as in natural law, is not possible. I have explained that we are all born into an ongoing power struggle. The struggle is ongoing today, just as it always is. All of us who are part of the great unwashed are not involved to any extent. Closer to the top, the competition is vicious.

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. [7] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. Matthew 24:6

This situation has not changed in over 2000 years. In modern times, our situation is quite different than it was back then. Power at the top is highly pronounced and concentrated. Consequences of wars are more devastating. Still, world peace is not simply illusive. It is impossible.

Getting in touch with reality is not just for entertainment. We are at the apex of the power struggle at this moment. Living in the light of reality gives you no protection from nuclear warheads. It does arm you in terms of knowing what to expect – so as to plan life accordingly. The value of attaining the light of reality is that peace does not disappear during trying times.

Give up on believing the lies of life and peace occurs automatically.

Recently, when answering a question in regards to my argument that the lie is a survival tool in the light of reality…. my answer was as follows.

Is there any such thing as a spiritual dimension? The biggest number do believe in there is, but pay the concept no mind. A small number recognize a spiritual world that is as important to our essence as what we experience physically. So, my observations will only be taken seriously by that small number.

Lies serve as a survival tool only in what the religions call the secular world. The secular world is synonymous with the animal kingdom, which is governed by the law of the jungle. Because of that, there are areas where the truth is not used at all. One of those is politics.

The only way to escape the world of lies is to become grounded in peace. Peace is acquired when one ceases to believe the lies of life. To live in peace is to think in the light of reality. Lies are diffused in a state of peace.

A Choice for Every Society

Two choices. 1. Government serves the citizens. 2. Citizens serve their government. It is a choice.

This does not have to be a conscious choice. As a matter of fact it seldom is I am not sure it ever is. Folks can make a natural choice. That means the choice may be pre – programmed into the human mind by the forces of nature.

People give intellectual answers to questions like those above. When the two questions are entertained, the reply will be something like this. A typical answer might be, “Government serves the people in the United States. That is guaranteed in the U.S. constitution. We all learned that in school.”. 

So, how is the situation going in the United States? Here is a link to the bills on which the House and Senate have passed and sent to the president.

Bills Passed Congress-Senate Sent to President

How many citizens have heard anything about these bills? How many care one way or another? So, U.S. citizens control their government. Given absolutely none have any knowledge of what is going on in the government….how is it that U.S. citizens are in control of their government? They don’t even know what is going on in government, other than what is purposefully fed to them.

But, of course Americans are in control of their government, right? The U.S. constitution says they are, right?

When you disregard how people, institutions and laws are officially defined – and consider only how they function – that changes everything. With that, a clear picture emerges. We are looking at belief in keeping with official definitions. This is fantasy. How a thing functions is what matters.

Your Americans have plenty of relevant information. Why are they not sharing it with the citizens? That is because citizens are deemed too naive, irresponsible and ignorant to grasp what is going on. Perhaps they are. Would it make a difference if they had relevant information?  Ordinary folks do fine on juries.

If a government  controls its citizens, does that mean government has a life of its own and operates independently of everyone? That is impossible. Government is controlled by perhaps a fraction of three percent of the population. Government serves this group very well. That means you as a citizen serve them also.

In a previous article For Profit Legislation, I explain that all legislation is for profit. Given human nature, it can’t be any other way. All lawmakers act out of self – interest. It behooves them to represent the upper fraction of three percent, who control government by controlling congress. The upper fraction of the population votes but votes are not all they offer. Why they offer much more is obvious. They have so much to offer in terms of benefits and consequences that they end up getting the representation ordinary citizens merely assume they have. It isn’t that they love each other. This is all completely brutal. The result is we have multitudes of abusive bills on the books which rig markets and funnel countless dollars to the top.

Once passed, odds are nearly one hundred percent, a bill will never be repealed. Most laws become feeding frenzies on federal money. In our universe, all entities serve something or somebody. Democracy provides a unique platform where  servitude comes out even. It works the same way in free markets. In the United States we have neither. Servitude is ongoing but it never comes out even.

The big payoff to viewing life in the light of reality is that there are no surprises. Gain the Fantasy Free Advantage, which is the light of reality, and what is obvious becomes apparent immediately.

Living With Artificial Intelligence

Living With Artificial Intelligence.PDF Version

You can live with artificial intelligence. That is because you are alive. It is touted as the wave of the future.  It may very well be. Most new advancements initially get dismissed by many and put in the “will never catch on” category. Yes, being alive, you may prefer to live without it.  However, you may not be able to avoid living with it.

Certainly, Artificial Intelligence will be used to accomplish many wonderful things. Lives may be improved and enhanced.  Fortunes will be made. It also provides ways to manage larger populations more efficiently with less effort. That is great for folks who appreciate being managed. It can make decisions for you. Is that good? It is great for multitudes who prefer others to make decisions for them. Thinking is work. Work is routinely avoided.  Few people can concentrate intensely for perhaps an hour without getting fatigued. Limiting thinking is avoiding fatigue.

So far, I have only been involved with two aspects of Artificial Intelligence. That is with respect to voice cloning and customer service experiences. With voice cloning it works great.

With respect to customer service operations, it obviously cuts costs for companies. For this reason, they have all convinced themselves that it is good for customers as well. Let’s look at that in the light of reality.

So far, on balance, it is to the detriment of customers. Artificial intelligence is a virtual entity. Customers are living beings, only treated as if they are virtual in nature. Attempts to sound friendly and insightful are simply irritating. While expenses are reduced considerably on the parts of companies, customers are assumed to have all the time in the world, regardless of what each may earn on an hourly basis. How impressed will a guy making $100 per hour be with spending an hour dorking around with a machine for an hour trying to explain what his question is. This is a big disconnect which will eventually be to the detriment of companies providing the customer service.

It is important to understand the limitations of technology. Machines can only use math. Math has a basic downside in that all it can produce is a number. Numbers become accepted as reality. In the right circumstances a number is perfect. When math is used to describe human behavior or create it, math is completely flawed. That is why with economics – I examine the forces in nature which make the numbers what they are. I let the other guys, who are many, deal with models and statistics. I am always ahead of the numbers. I appreciate their work. It is there to be used as a resource for me to use when I need it.

The firms who adopt Artificial Intelligence for customer service operations see only their new cost savings. The number attached to that looks good. No focus on how it affects business overall, no worries as to how many customers it eventually runs off.

Customer service has been technology based for a long time. For myself, if I end up going to customer service, it is only because of something so bizarre that it requires an actual sentient being to figure it out. It. With Artificial Intelligence customer service, my goal turns out to be finding a way to get past it and talk to a real person.

What Is Most Relevant In These Trying Times?

What Is Most Relevant in These Trying Times PDF Version

This is a question I answered on a public forum where I am apparently still welcome and for now uncensored .

Are Americans crazy? I say no. What we can see is mal-adaptive behavior. As
previously mentioned the evolution of free markets and democratic systems, in terms of economics is of greater influence than the invention of the wheel. What we are seeing worldwide are populations consumed and absorbed in instinctive behavior. The emergence of free markets and democratic principles changes the way mankind reasons intellectually. It does not change the adherence to instinctive behavior. Continue reading

The Pledge Of Allegiance

Let’s look at the pledge of allegiance to the United States of America, in the light of reality. In doing this, I am not suggesting that any be disloyal to their country.

The pledge starts out, I pledge allegiance to the flag and to  the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands..

By taking the pledge citizens are pledging allegiance to the flag, and the country itself which is second in sequence. The flag is a symbol and an icon that stands for the country regardless of what it was, is, or is becoming . So, the country itself can change for the worse. The republic can lose its democratic principles. Citizens continue to focus on the flag. They may not notice when democratic principles are lost. Continue reading

Forgiveness: The Misunderstanding

A man files for bankruptcy – and his debts are forgiven. In the minds of his creditors, is he exonerated? No, he isn’t. They have just quit expending energy trying to collect the debt. They are finished loaning him money – at least for a long time. His creditors have better things to do than to worry about reconciling the situation. They are never going to collect. All forgiveness is of the same nature Continue reading

How To Train Human Beings

How To Train Human Beings PDF Verson

Most know how to train a dog, horse and countless other animals…. right? Farmers train whole herds of cattle. My, uncle, a cattle rancher used to load a truck with bails of hay. after which he drove off to feed his herd. He would blow his horn a few times and then start throwing bails of hay out into the pasture. It did not take long before all cattle would rush to the sound  of his horn. My uncle also had a system in place for medicating his cows.  He put them all in a coral and shut the gate. They had one way out. That was through a chute that would accommodate only one cow at a time. The cows were easy to motivate to get out.  He just placed hay outside the opening in the chute. As the cows passed through the chute, he would inject each one with medication. Continue reading

Smartening Up Chumps The Hazards

Smartening Up Chumps The Hazards.PDF Version

With natural law, we can get it right with hardly any facts, figures or information deemed necessary. All we need is to know how life works. We do that by discarding the lies of life. We just observe the situation through  the light of reality.

Look at the world through the lens of fantasy and all conclusions we witness are misdirected through the prism of fantasy. When comic, W. C. Fields coined the two quotes below, surely he was not aware of their significance to the situation in the world today.

“You can fool some of the people some of the time — and that’s enough to make a decent living.” W.C. Fields Continue reading

Why Get In Touch With Reality?

Why Get In Touch With Reality.PDF Version

There are many reasons for escaping reality. Fantasy serves as a coping mechanism. Fantasy is a great source of comfort in a world which is bound by laws of dominance and subservience. Fantasy is used to create a sense of security. Some lives are lived from beginning to end without being harmed as fantasy is used as an escape mechanism. However in most cases, reality imposes itself on all of humanity several times throughout a lifetime. The most recent occasion occurred in the United States on September 11, 2001.

The benefits of grasping and accepting reality may not be immediately apparent.  In the present moment, any benefits at all are hard to see. Benefits do accumulate over time…. based on the principles of window of window of enlightenment. The costs are up front. The enormous benefits unfold over time. Given time, the benefits do outweigh the costs, of over – indulging in fantasy.

The most obvious benefit of living a reality – based life is that of recognizing danger a person may not be aware of otherwise. Once fantasy is recognized and quarantined, a window of enlightenment opens up. What you see is what there is. Suddenly the motivations of others, as well as your own…. become apparent. This is of special value when dealing with issues involving love relationships. In the end, peace is found, while there is no peace in the fantasy world.

Getting Started

Getting Started.  PDF Version

The fantasy free advantage starts with the understanding that uncertainty is normal. Some uncertainty can be eliminated – but not much. Out of uncertainty, its close cousin insecurity is derived. Uncertainty and insecurity combine and fear is the result.  Fear is assuaged by adopting euphemisms and  indulging in fantasy. Cold reality is too overwhelming  so it becomes  replaced with fantasies.

No one knows what life is. No one knows what happens when we die. We are all conscious. No one knows what consciousness is. Is consciousness generated by life or is it independent of life?

Then , there is the will to live. The will to live is more confounding than life itself. Whatever is alive seeks to stay alive. Even a blade of grass with no brain has the will to live. Who knows the source of the will to live? Does life have a purpose? Any purpose is not apparent. All animals, including humans must consume animals and other living things in order to survive. Focusing on these attributes of existence is daunting. The mind doesn’t want to go there – so it doesn’t.

In the Old Testament, the author of the Book of Ecclesiastes focuses on these issues and draws no concrete conclusions. The meanings of a number of Old Testament books focus on how to live life in the face of life’s daunting unanswered questions and mysteries.

The race to escape reality begins at birth. Every child is unknowingly born into an eternal power struggle.  Reality is replaced with fantasy because it is too harsh to cope with.  Our world is governed by laws of dominance and subservience. Most people live in an oasis of peace separated from all of the belligerence and brutality …. that is actually an ongoing process. The attempted escape does begin at birth. This continues throughout life. Reality always wins in the end.

Basic Unanswered Questions

 During a lifetime, reality catches up with everyone a number of times. That does not mean a person becomes enlightened and discovers what reality is. Having to deal with reality is not the same as grasping and internalizing the concept. As soon as a crisis passes and usually while the crisis is ongoing, life becomes centered around new fantasies. Sometimes old fantasies are refurbished, adjusted, and re-applied to one’s life.

Regardless…. reality is what it is.  to all consumed in fantasy, their fantasies  are their reality. Attack these fantasies of life and their beholders defend them vehemently. The lies of life replace nature’s reality with fantasies. The truth is then seen as threatening. I guess that it is. The truth about reality is what it is – no matter what. In other words, the way things are is the way things are.
