Facebook And Friends

Big Tech firms face serious headwinds. The big one that confronts Facebook, is that people don’t use it anymore. Sure, the official numbers show otherwise.  There are ways to create official numbers. There is no way to hide reality when reality takes hold. Facebook is dead space. There is a limit to how long it can be presented as otherwise. For years, I used Facebook. I got off in 2020 because I was so offended by the censorship. At the time of my leaving, there were countless users who posted constantly – some all day long.

A few months ago, I logged into a page I opened using an AKA name created years ago. I have never used it. With that page, I only have four friends. Continue reading

How To Be Poor

Although not yet acknowledged, most Americans are going to lose everything they own. Why is this inevitable? Learn to think in the light of reality and it is completely clear. Do that and recognize what is obvious. Don’t do that and be suddenly surprised. Root causes become completely apparent. The United States has dismantled its free market system and opted for a system of central economic planning, though not stated and not in an easily recognizable form. Modern monetary theory solutions, i.e. QE etc., constitute central economic planning. With any kind of intervention , the government gets commandeered by the politically powerful who get laws passed and policies implemented which transfer resources to them. This practice has been ongoing in vengeance since the Reagan Administration. The damage is done. The consequences will be severe. This is reality. Continue reading

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.
