(Above) Michio Kaku reiterates the Kardashev scale
-Earth, Star System
By Nathan Human
Occasionally we get so wound up in the mundane world of human affairs that we forget our context, even the most philosophically occupied among us still succomb to the fabrications of the sensory.
A few points of significance
Right NOW we are on what we call a "rock" that is but one in a series of rocks spinning around other rocks which themselves are traversing through what appears to be unending abyss of "blackness" at speeds that cannot be comprehended by our ground bound organic mass. I personally have no idea as to what is going on here, quite frankly "I" dont know enough about the "I" to trust in its curiosity, much less its findings...
I am a collection of cells that would appear to be typing words on a screen that will eventually be read by the two other sacks of cells known as my "readers".
The fact that this isnt on the news, and that we have become so accustomed and exhausted of musing over our own existence is WHY the world is plagued by so many inequities. You really have to think about this picture, and not in a religous or spiritual way (as the notion of spirit is equally subjective). Actually dont think about it, visualize it. Visualize your place in that which you refer to be the universe. Dont just think about it as you and the stars, and all that hollywood nonsense that we have been conditioned to associate the contemplation of our existence with, really think about abrasive reality of what is really fucking happening RIGHT NOW. There is no stars, there is balls of fuel and raging infernos. There is no "you" there is the conversation between organ systems in a language you necessarily dont understand while allowing you to make your own. If everyone were to truly visualize their place in the cosmos, the world would be a more harmonious place. A persons understanding of the world, its complexity and sophistication is commensurate to their ability to percieve the context of their existence, their awareness of injustice and how easily they can be controlled.
YOU ARE HERE NOW. LIVING. BREATHING. YOUR EYES ARE WET. YOU DONT NOW WHY. SOON YOU WILL BE FRAIL. SOON YOU WILL BE DUST. THIS IS IMPORTANT.
It is a thought that can and should be evoked in our darkest, and more importantly our brightest hours. No matter how high a podium a human being stands on, that podium is indefinitely pegged into the foundation of the earth. So why then do we fight? Why then do we bother resisting corrupt governments and corporations? What is it in us that motivates us to challenge hegemony? It isnt a desire to be free, rather it is our inclination to homeostasis, balance, and justice.
Kakus unified civilization cannot arise using fear to coax people into buying into it, people have to first comprehend its importance, and not be tricked into the state of 'technopoly' in which we simply passively accept technology without considering the corrupt context from which it emerged. How can we ensure the integrity of this upcoming global society which will dictate our destiny as a species hereafter if we cannot even minimize corruption on a regional scale.
Can we at the same time have our motives for unification be ridden with fear while attempting to transcend the "problem> fear > solution" level of consiousness so pervasively used in nation building? If fear is what knitted the fabric of regional tyranny that blankets the sleeping world, what should we expect from a global patchwork utilizing the same seamstress? Its like the "green economy" movement and trying to mandate higher conscious behaviours (awareness of ones environment) using the lowest level of consciousness as a motivator (i.e. greed, money).
Freedom in the truest sense of the word entails universal bastardization. It entails a functionless excess, an unpredictable, chaotic, and subatomically boun disorder. In fact nothing is free, everything is sandwiched between something else. Freedom is an illusion. Freedom in its realist form is a nightmare, and is physically impossible.
The fact is freedom is unattainable, whereas Justice and balance are. Therefore I am changing the "freedumb movement" to the "justice movement". To the avail of no one, but these zeros and ones and zeros and ones....
Kaku uses fear to warrant the NWO, the same tactic practiced by the terrorists he claims "hate our tolerance". Like most scientists woven into the academic complex he is a pragmatic genius who is fundamentally and philosophically wrong.
