It’s OK to Know

April 1, 2010

In the Beginning, there was very little known to man, except that which was directly experienced. Experiments were the rule not the exception. Humans lived lives of meaningful discovery.

Nowadays we are programmed from birth and all too many factors influence what we know about our local environment and indeed the world. We have learned to accept so much information as fact, as certainty, based on the assurances of society’s elders. Those fortunate enough to become educated beyond high school often come away from college not certain of what they actually know and how useful that information is.

At every turn, a conscious choice to think deliberately is discouraged. The subtle suggestion is to think reactively. Go with your gut they tell you – wise advice if your intuition ‘knows’.

Modern society, especially in the realm of the technologically elite, has become an increasingly complex series of lab-rat-stories. Our intuition is being shaped by Pavlovian forces like never before. However, once an individual’s consciousness realizes that its intuition has been hijacked, it can be difficult to cope.

This blog is here to tell you that you can reorient your mind, that you can know what is real, what is truth. There is but one rule: believe not in the absolute.

Allow yourself to accept that knowing is not an exercise in “the wisdom of crowds”, and that it can be a lonely place. In fact, you may find that you are less inclined to express your opinion once you connect with a deeper understanding of this life and whatever future lies ahead.

In this case, it’s not a choice of red pill or blue pill. It’s not a choice of salvation or damnation. The choice is to evolve or to not. Otherwise, we are little more than lab rats.

    These word help when you feel like everyone judges you for a more critical outlook on life. It may be pessimistic but at it’s root it’s very similar. The light and good shine so bright because it is surrounded by darkness, one could say. Or not, if you prefer 🙂
