[quote:chaol 183770:MV84NzI1OTBfMTM1MjE3MTZfQkU0M0IyNUQ=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 762570] (snip...) Your mobile phone example is good. The reason for that is profit, but I think the rabbit hole goes deeper. I think the banking system and fractional reserve lending is the main culprit. Everybody needs to make more money to keep the money system going, so to speak. In the Western world (with the rest following suit) it's all about how much money you have in your bank account. If you are poor, you are a failure, that kind of representation.... [/quote] Hello! I think the sickness is not so much greed but the confusion of what physicality is. For the last few thousand years humans have been used to thinking that physical resources are limited. We naturally tend to think that we will not be able to form relationships (and, thus, exist) if we do not have these physical resources, land, etc. This "more, more, more" is a survival instinct. It's a sickness only in respect of not being able to link the physical with the non-physical (yet). Other, non-physical entities have their own survival instinct appropriate to their surroundings. [quote:Anonymous Coward 762570] (snip...) It's kind of like all Western ambitions being material, that would perhaps sum it up. No tribal belonging, too much individualism, a lack of expressive bonding, that sort of thing. It felt like a heart trap... [/quote] It's all for good reason, I assure you. It's not as bad as may be thought. Perhaps there is no real "materiality". Non-physical things can also be thought of as material because there is not really any difference between the two compositions. They're all just representations, even "spiritual". Thanks. [/quote]
I have been living in this world for some time now.
I came from a place also named Earth, much like this planet. There are a number of differences between my home and yours.
I thought it would be interesting to share a few things with you that are relatively common knowledge where I am from. My reasons for doing so will probably be more apparent in the future.
* Consciousness does not exist (but relationships do)
* Matter is gravity that has been structured
* We are not human (we are perspectives)
* When the totality of something cannot be grasped, it appears infinite.
* Space is not physical
* There is no "now" or "here", but relationships.
We use a kind of language like you use numbers here. Numbers, representations of abstract concepts, were 'invented' to work more easily with the world around us. Our language is no different.
If it were invented today it would probably be thought of as existing in parallel with science. A new kind of science.
This language also enables the shifting of perspective like a kind of mental technology. Some of you may find it quite interesting.
If anyone is interested in learning more please let me know.
