Substantiating one’s existence. One’s own thoughts generally involve the crutch of a popular personality to claim any hope of notoriety. This sort of vindication makes one a vassal of a phantom whose spirit is controlled by the business entity that directs general popular discourse. How fresh and innovative can that be? Rather than dwell on the concept that your utterance has a strain of truth based upon previous uttered synchronies from former eras, what about focusing how the veracity of the statement resonates in terms of the present. What cracks in the firmament of calcified society can you heartfelt pronouncements inspire. The proverbial walls of Jericho may unexpectedly tumble before the flutter of your winged butterfly sentiments. The only question being are they based upon one’s actual inflexible belief.
Belief after all is stronger than fact! Fact is more dependent upon consensus than the other way around. If this exclamation seems heretical then consider if the Internet were to close down and all libraries close, how human society would so quickly readjust to a belief system that would be based upon everyday mutual existence. Social organisms thrive upon consent and unilateral viewpoints. Consider how modern society has made a transition from one form of testimony based upon third party ‘experiential’ revelations to another one of third party ‘factual’ revelations. The method of association of the larger body within the species essentially equivalent in the historical doctrinal shift from Religion to Science. The reverence for a savant as related by a disciple as in the case of Jesus or Bhudda expressed in our contemporary realm as the appearance of the mythical postulation of the recently verified Higg’s Bosun particle. The ‘priesthood’ have experienced it and they pass their revelation downward the the masses.
The result is of course an organized system of dependency that is managed from above. In a society that routinely resorts to well crafted visual and auditory illusion one feels the responsibility to be skeptical of major shifts in belief. This is evident in a traditional shift toward conservative thinking increasingly manifesting itself with the passing of decades. The old beliefs whether fiction or not have at least stood the test of time if by nothing else the verification of the testimony of peer groups. That body of these truism’s forming the basis for consensual societies as reflected in the teachings of major institutions and universities. It is only towards the end of life that the larger doubts and persistently irreconcilable issues come back once again to crumble the absolutism of one’s surety. The test at the end is to carry on with one’s inflexibly in supporting the inertial totality of one’s earthly existence or to abandon former rationality in favor of the embrace of the moment during those last hours before one’s impending departure.
