"Leadership": The Crazed and Insane & The Cult of Hanlon's Razor

“Liberty, then, is the sovereignty of the individual, and never shall man know liberty until each and every individual is acknowledged to be the only legitimate sovereign of his or her person, time, and property, each living and acting at his own cost.”  Josiah Warren

Inventions and the scientific method of research have so transformed human life that the long inherited, timeless universe of symbols has collapsed. It is not only that there is no hiding place for the gods from the searching telescope and microscope but there is no such society as the gods once supported. Ideals of the social unit are not those of the hieratic pantomime, making visible on earth the forms of heaven, but of the secular state, in hard and unremitting competition for material supremacy and resources.

And within the progressive societies themselves, every last vestige of the ancient human heritage of ritual, morality, and art is in full decay.

One does not know toward what one moves. One does not know by what one is propelled. The hero-deed to be wrought is not today what it was in the century of Galileo. Where there was darkness, now there is light; but also, where light was, there is now darkness.

The modern hero-deed must be that of questing to bring light again to the lost Atlantis of the coordinated soul.

The modern hero, the modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot - indeed must not - wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, and rationalized avarice and sanctified misunderstanding.
‘Live', Nietzsche says, ‘as though the day was here.' It is not society that is to guide and save the hero, but precisely the reverse.

And so every one of us shares the supreme ordeal - carries the cross of the redeemer - not in the bright moments of his tribe's great victories but in the silences of his personal despair.

Joseph Campbell, in The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

Consider now, that everything is cyclic, but not so exactly so that each cycle repeats exactly as those gone before. Therefore, we can now see cyclic evolution in all phenomenon on Earth, but not only on Earth, but throughout the Universe. Now consider, than men of the current dominant species, that is 'homo sapien s' have been around not just for 6000 years as the dogma has it, but for over a million years. During this time then, something must have evolved. This evolution, or more exactly, all evolution is in awareness alone; not in the corporeal or characteristics of the body, but the characteristics of, let us say, the functioning neurology; the consciousness. There is plenty of academic works supporting this matter so we move on confident that so far we are on the right tangent. 

Throughout the Universe, Time does not exist. Only structure, organization, relationships, synergies, proportions, correspondences, common Universal Laws, parochial laws and such like exist unless, of course, one has a timepiece similar to that invented by man to scale duration, and is on this planet. Hence to the Universe, Time is immaterial. So your opinion doesn't count! What this means is that evolution is a Universal Law, and not only does your opinion not count, but it is going to happen if you like it or not!

The 'attractor' then is the available and briefly existence of circumstances for 'complicity' the verbe of the Prime Tripartite of Universal Principles.

Now you have heard of the Golden Age that has gone before and we have just lived through the Age of Pisces to soon emerge into the Age of Aquarius or the Age of Man. These are phases, remember this, like the phases of the Moon. You should now reflect on what you know of the past ~2,500 years and you will quickly realize that it has been an Age of war, murder, genocide, slavery, conquest, technology, flight, institutional religion, priests of all type, hierarchy, ideologies and bureaucracy, or as one enlightened academic wrote, a time where all the peoples became crazed and fearful; a time when people had become disconnected with their Gods, or words of similar effect. In other words, an Age where the technology functionalities that are now in the neurologies of men have been seared painfully into the electro-chemical infrastructures by Universal evolution and some survived this phase of events and some didn't. We are now ready for the next step.

It is clear that mentalities are changing, that is to say, a new mentality is emerging throughout the World. We see and experience it throught the Internet; look at Google; look at blogging; look at the private space companies; look at EPIC; look at computer journalism. Ideas are changing, attitudes are changing, communications are becoming efficient. What is happening is that consciousness, or functional cognizance is morphing from a 2 dimension or quantitative state of static objectivity to a 3 dimensional qualitative state of dynamic unity where values and integrity become profound attributes through the complicit internalizing or becoming one with knowledge. Men are becoming connected with their Gods again (Jaynes). This is evolution. Out with the old and in with the new.

Until now there has been a sacrifice to the "intersubjective" truth of the collective, that is to say, only what is perceived by the generality of men is recognized as true. What the isolated individual alone perceives, by grace of a higher state of higher consciousness, or even though an exceptional sensorial sensitivity, is excluded, if not rejected, as subjective, unshared knowledge. And, through your desire for association within the collective, you willingly sacrifice your freedoms and your will to this life like force that has no corporeal form but nevertheless is the prime driving force over the minds and actions of men today.

How to be-come Man? This is a process of disassociating your thoughts, beliefs, words and actions from the group; this is a process of acting individualistically on values or qualitative action where today's norm in all human affairs are directed at the quantitative, a priori; and beware, where 'mediocrity' is called "excellence".

You must question everything, not superficially, but in depth; in volume. You must consider and reflect within yourself so that you interact with input data complicitly and experientially. Information learned by rote and immitation (the emphasis in all matters of education today) remains superficial and is not part of you. Morality is always just fashionable convenience du jour and readily available for sacrifice by your group-think; your collective integrity isn't, that is, it doesn't exist except in the form of dialectic sophistry while the sacrifice of your potential, that is your soul, is personal and individual, in heart, spirit and mind. Your choice; be sacrificed by your group or make your own decisions based on the processes within yourself. The 'collective or group or association, etc., etc., is not a life form albeit, is not human now animal' they are voluntary sacrificial phenomena of human sacrifice. 

The future lies in the hands of men, that is to say, you. The current mentality is killing humanity, and society, so it is time to evolve to a higher order. We need to leave the past behind but never forgotten. We need to stop the killing, the genocide; the murder; this is not the preferred way forward. We need to respect, that is, to respect all life which includes our planet and all creature upon it. We need to respect ourselves; we need to develop our new mentality; one of respect, compassion, values, integrity, and intellect.

Murder and genocide is not an option - except by the crazed and insane.

Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example, starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us: HH the Dalai Lama:

We Need a General Theory of Individuality

Christophe Vorlet for The Chronicle Review

By David P. Barash

Needed, an oxymoron: a general scientific theory of individual differences. To focus upon individuality is to celebrate particularity, whereas any general theory must, by definition, submerge the individual case in a wider sea of pattern. Each of us cherishes our own separate, individual personhood, making much of the "fact" that we are different from everyone else (while also insisting, of course, that we aren't all that different). But attention to individual differences runs the risk of being unscientific, insofar as science aims at generalizing, raising our heads above the individual trees to recognize the forest. Yet the need is there. When Kierkegaard insisted that his tombstone say "That Individual," he was identifying both an existential truth and a profound scientific dilemma.

One of the unspoken secrets in basic scientific research, from anthropology to zoology (with intervening stops at physiology, political science, psychology, psychiatry, and sociology) is that, nearly always, individuals turn out to be different from one another, and that—to an extent rarely admitted and virtually never pursued—scientific generalizations tend to hush up those differences. It can be argued that that is what generalizations are: statements that apply to a larger class of phenomena and must, by definition, do violence to individuality. But since science seeks to explain observed phenomena, it should also be able to explain the granular particularity of such phenomena. In fact, generalities lose potency if they occur at the cost of artificially leveling otherwise significant features of reality.

No geneticist would dispute that in every sexually reproducing species, individuals possess distinct genotypes (monozygotic twins excepted). In the best-studied species, Homo sapiens, we know that individuals differ apparently even in traits that don't provide an adaptive advantage, like fingerprints, as well as in physical appearance and personality. Field biologists can often distinguish individuals among their study animals by distinct physical and/or behavioral traits. Almost certainly such individuality is at least as apparent to the animals themselves. Every pet owner knows, moreover, that individual dogs, cats, or horses are not interchangeable, yet theoretical constructs in biological science, in particular, often proceed as though they were. Thus biologists theorize about adaptive traits for "the" adult male or "a" juvenile female, knowing full well that there are only individual adult males and juvenile females—each of them distinct, albeit similar enough to be grouped together...

Mind evolves and not body where the self-control and self-evolution of Mind is the purpose of life itself.

About Me

My photo
I am now considered too old to be of further threat but I have survived three institutional attempts to prematurely end my life during my career. The current Global Systemic Collapse (GSC), better described as a 'global leadership collapse' (GLC), is a socio-economic phase-transition brought about by the total failure of global "leadership", to find even the most basic of foresight and compassionate sensitivities to balance the imbalances and injustices that they have wrought on the World. Governments' are now attempting to create an exclusive risk-free corporate environment. This delusional ideology of pure insanity, cannot sustain. This sought "risk-free' corporate banking environment is to be achieved by transferring all risk and all financial losses to the tax-payers (“Main Street”) while maintaining a highly secretive cabal of global elites and ruling politician and bankers. The simple truth is that our "Economic Theory" is a fatally flawed, faith-based farce, and "leadership" do not have the necessary intelligence nor intellect to confront the issues du jour. There are now only Heretics and Fools, but, there is always a “choice”.
