… and a word or two about High Politics.
On how ‘calling out for help’ (symb. Jesus) became a religion and one of the grandest distortions of Knowledge ever unknown yet experienced by mankind of the so called modern era.
As collective archetypes are intruding on each other more and more (a bit like ‘merging’ or piling on of tectonic plates) I decided to share a little about the power of image and its disadvantages for the mass intellect as operating in mass media, for the religious worship as well as non-denominational spiritual practices. This post can be viewed as a branch or an add on to Transformation vs Alchemisation as well as On Media…
This post is offered as an appendix, extension or under~layer of my previous post On Media…
The Universe always brings us answers to our questions and always in form of an actual, direct experience. Some dragged prayer and God into it, wrongly assuming that only ‘the good’ will be answered. Delivery of that which had been summoned through question is law, it is not discriminatory or selective and it always works. Just like the law of gravity, (as applied in the 3rd dimension), it affects everyone regardless of opinion, history, status. This law is created ‘above’ the 3rd dimension and ‘trickles down’. Because our average life span doesn’t currently go beyond 100 years, some answers are delivered to the generations that succeed the The One who asked. As per Hierarchy 1 and Hierarchy 2 , the more profound the question asked, the more ‘time’ it takes for the magnetism of Earth (and the human Heart) to gather data to deliver the answer. Are we aware of what we are asking?
Today I will share a little about two strands which influence human conscious and subconscious, therefore human manifestations and results, on a global level. I will turn to aspects of Judaic and Christian traditions, described and included in The Old and The New Testament respectively. The point of this is to illustrate the complimentary attributes of each aspect. The comparative representation aiming at showing superiority of one above the other, is necessarily included in religiously influenced thinking but irrelevant for our analysis. Judaic tradition should not concern itself with Christianity and vice versa.
Oh, dear, how very pedantic of me, I smiled at myself while dissecting the lyrics of a popular song. So Michael would sing Man in the Mirror and I would shake my head, saying no, no Michael, it is the man in front of it. Then I realised I understood the process of change slightly differently to Michael and my pedantry ran deeper than semantics. The man in the mirror symbolises transformation, while attending to the man in front of the mirror is a higher/deeper octave act of alchemisation. Let me explain.
With the recent developments in mainland Europe and flood of ‘immigrants’ to Germany and Austria I decided to briefly share my understanding of nationalism, nationhood and national spirit, as they are distinct, often feeding off each other, but rarely in synchronicity.
Adapted from Misfortunes of systemic transference.
In Contextualising Economy I mentioned very briefly systemic transference giving algebraic vs economic transference as an example. Today I will expand on the subject by examples of Friedrich Hayek’s and Aristotle’s theories, to indicate that systemic transference, although it can assist in intellectual understanding within and across disciplines, not always translates into successful tools of social management. For the sake of this post I will assume that the reader is loosely familiar with Hayek’s theory of free markets as well as Aristotle’s Politics and will move directly into presenting my views. I will operate within macro and supra levels to illustrate them.
Last year, inspired by the Scottish Referendum, I wrote about identity and indicated that externals like family, religion and nation claim the rights to our selves. I put these in ‘external’ category as these groups/phenomena can be easily identified in the outside world in form of members of family, or church, the preachers, politicians, national flags and geography.
Economy as a multi-folded, multi-faceted and interdependent phenomenon is conceptualised, experienced and approached differently in every country. This is partly the reason why globalisation, conducted as it had been up until now, brought mixed and sometimes devastating results. I will briefly introduce the contextualisation of economy by looking at it from angles of debt and apparent inequality. I will lean on and use Joseph Stiglitz understandings as a platform to introduce the cosmic perspective to the current Earthly experiences provided by the economic system.
