“People don’t live in a materialist reality, they do have free will, they are not a body—they are consciousness. They have a purpose: their purpose is to lower the entropy of their consciousness. That’s how a consciousness evolves.
“And what that means—and it’s a very logical process that derives this—is they need to become love. They need to become more caring, more about others and not so much about themselves. That is the direction of consciousness evolution.”
-Thomas Campbell, PhD nuclear physicist (NASA), “ANU Physics Experiment and the Implications for Everyone” (2015)
Hello fellow humans.
First of all, I’m sorry I do not post very often, as I’ve been busy with other endeavors. However, from now on I will try to make things concise, so this will be a far cry from former 50,000 word pieces. But it will still be about something we could all relate to, and should contemplate deeply. Now please meditate on this question we must ask ourselves as human beings:
What is the measure of success in our society?
Because whenever someone mentions the word, the mind automatically gravitates towards money. A successful person must have a nice house, a nice car, a high-paying job—these material things we treasure dearly. Thus it is perfectly ingrained within the Western psyche, fostering an ideal breeding ground for ruthless competition and social Darwinism.
The ones who do not cut it, sadly, can be losers for life. Especially if they are not born into the right family. We lie, we cheat, we steal, even murder for this currency that at its essence, has no intrinsic value, and can be printed out of thin air.
What could possibly explain this mode of thought?
I believe there are root causes. For it hasn’t always been this way.
Philosophers from Aristotle to Immanuel Kant have regarded the cultivation of virtue as the highest good in life, and thus the most honorable goal. Religious figures from Buddha to Jesus Christ have preached the importance of love and forgiveness, as a means for man to purify his soul.
