When one takes fingers to keyboard, in the modern sense of pen and paper, it is generally to create fantasy or explain reality. All perhaps for the purpose of entertaining others or in the case of an extended journal to remind one’s self at some later date to recall. Both ventures fatally flawed in that elusive concepts of the truth by was of fragmentary narrative in the sense of a unilateral viewpoint that so often pretends to have long taken ‘both sides’ of an issue into account. The inner and outer as far as the self, the group one holds close, and the tribal array that one relies on all the way up to the scale of nationhood. Writing out these long diatribes equally depended not he ability not only to convince others but most particularly one’s self as to their validity. To do otherwise classes one as some flighty sensualist in love with their own stream of consciousness mental flow otherwise known in many circles as poetry.
But the world of fully erect postured bipeds that often refer to themselves as men or in the collective sense as ‘hu’-man’s, is unique to the collective experience of him alone. It cannot encompass the true variety of anthropomorphic peculiarities of any other kind of life that operates on completely different set of experience. Throw a hand grenade into a pond of fish but do not imagine that if you were one of those fish that you would take in in the same manner that the thrower might imagine in an equivalent circumstance of being unexpectedly wracked by the hammer of the greater gods. Do piraña’s practice Democracy when they devour their prey? Human anatomy is based on the integrated opposition of bipedal symmetry. An Arachnid has eight legs and generally as many eyes around what relates to as a head. Does that mean that as a human one’s viewpoint tends to be bipolar balance of left and right? Or a spider’s view of the world weighs eight different aspects of it’s own collective existence to form a fully panoramic perspective of its own universal plight?
Mankind is perpetually proud of its ability to store memory in a form outside of its own biology in the form of books and electronic gizmo’s. The daily existence of modern individuals being equally adept at forgetting everything useful in their immediate consciousness in favor of something, anything that reliably stimulates their animal form in the moment. In the collective sense of the same one can mention anything considered ‘popular’ by means of a status based informal consensus as formed by the immediate group or the larger tribe. The logos of the account of events and the sorting of same by those that refer to themselves as academics or legal legislators has to conform to the collective viewpoints of the day as set down by those in society that retain the most pervasive amount of influence. Accuracy in recounting the events by sorting out of the official telling what might appear to be hard facts and replacing them with desired elements of hearsay resembling facts. Belief of the moment being more important than accuracy of minor details as to the actual identity of the bomber or show sent him off on his mission immaterial to what the ‘facts‘ demand that people believe. The power of the notion of Democracy being a creative tool in the hands of tyrants who are long versed in confounding consensus, also referred casually as public opinion, an element birthed more in the mind of single entity desiring the crowd to follow their exclusive line of rationality.
For those poor souls that wish to determine just what is going on in terms of the many slings and arrows cast their way in the course of their mostly mandatory participation in the present tense human community, is a risk of causing a falling out at every turn with their fellows. The trivial and banal in modern society can be likened to our curious form of waste disposal where outbursts based on types of topics must be carefully sorted before any casual immediate deprecatory voicing in public. You can freely diminish a ‘Hitler’ in the guidelines set down by his main publicists, the Ashkenazi’s, but must be particularly careful not to disparage a Lenin or Mao with the same amount of vigor in terms of their relation to the invention of Socialism. Terminology, the greatest gift supposedly ceded to humankind along without he opposing thumb and big brain case, the greatest playground of the art of the bipolar in routine double entendre’s or purposefully posed double meanings. Everyday life spent with one’s ‘better’s’ continually a case of the old adage, “Do what I say!, not what I myself do!” The ever flowing fountain of acceptable knowledge not flowing from the reliably verifiable phenomena come of repetitive personal observation, but by way of the persistence of cradle to grave repetitive recitation of the absolute conclusion of a singular authority. The contemporary version in our I-phone cursed reality being headline journalism rarely supported by more than a carefully worded parenthetical recitation of continually repeated buzz words. These perceptions forming a security blanket under which the common folk are expected to conceal any conflicting thoughts or personal outbursts under penalty of incurring possible deadly force from other a central authority or more likely one’s neighbor or spouse.
Thus those that wish to risk coming to conclusions on their own that might in turn lead to an inflexibly stated publicly abhorrent opinion, (ie. that the twin towers of 911 New York were brought down by a governmentally preset controlled demolition, or that the Israeli Mossad and the CIA killed the American president, RFK), might be well advised to keep it to themselves. Similar prolific examples of this sort of ill considered behavior of a given Galileo, right up to a more modern, Julian Assange, provide witness to what the unconscious desire to achieve fame can bring those foolish enough to run against the prevailing current of what they might consider as deceitful and wrong. Better to bow down worship the deities of the hour of the latest extremities of Women’s right to kill off their own offspring at will without comment or allow those whose looking glass to the world resides within their orifices to instruct all children in the prepubescent joys of sodomy. A guide to the modern journalist should reasonable include these and other similar provisos to any and all that would consider having their manuscripts set forth upon the Internet like little boats supporting the flickering candles of their own personal experiences of life. Stick to the acceptably trivial if you hope to make a buck!
