Some Things are best left Unexplained

[thoughts from   ~burning woman~   by Sha’Tara]

 

When an Earthian by some fluke (some coming together from a series of fortuitous events) makes the jump from being a pseudo-human into the actual human race, life completely changes.  It becomes a totally different concept; it becomes amazing.  A slave sees things from a certain perspective: painful, narrow, limited and basically hopeless.  A master sees things quite differently.  There’s an open vista of infinite possibilities that flow, swirl, dance; beguiling, alluring, attracting, calling to explore the limitless possibilities of the cosmos. 

To the master, the cosmos is not this material world or the universe or even the multiverse.  It’s more and beyond anything so crass, material, limited and limiting.  Any reasoning based on strictly physical awareness brings one to some end; a wall. To an actual human, does the physical body stand in the way of new and expanded awareness?  Then the body is abandoned, temporarily or permanently – it’s really not that important.  A body is a sensor, nothing more.  It allows the occupant to taste only one particular reality: the physical world. It’s not designed for anything more.  You don’t take your car to bed with you; you don’t make love to it (even if you wanted to).  The material has its limits.  

To the slave, the body is all there is, and it is a death trap.  Its “awareness” is limited to the functions within a physical brain, a physical set of switches that operate a material body.  That central processing unit doesn’t sense anything that isn’t material.  It has no affinity for abstractions.  It cannot think or reason, only compute.  Pseudo humans, a description that fits the vast majority of Earthians are no more than computers installed inside robotic bodies.  Their thinking isn’t theirs, they picked it up from watching TV as a baby, and up through the ranks of the faithful followers of approved beliefs, changing their minds (or not) as their pet beliefs fell into disrepute to be replaced by something new and improved. 

It’s a funny thing, that man can “evolve” a kind of material technology and yet become less human in the process.  Well, not so funny actually.  It’s an energy trade-off.  If you want to advance your technology, you must coincidentally give up previously attained levels of humanity or consciousness.  The greatest loss is in values and ideals.  These are sacrificed on the altar of science and technology. Science and technology are not human values, they are material and mechanical properties.  They belong strictly to the material world.

In the beginning of modern “advances” in scientific thought and experimentation, older values and ideals still held sway.  As success followed success for general science; as it gained expertise in the use of natural functions and turned those into technological achievements, the human part of scientists and technologists eroded away.  They became thinking machines until all that mattered were measurable results.  Consequences of applied science and technology mattered less and less.  Science, or rather its high priests, were bought by financial interests in order to serve them, not the world, not the people but corporate and banking predators.  A “moral” science would never expand as rapidly, nor be as lucrative as an amoral one, and so scientists dropped their façade of human ideals and plunged whole-heartedly into a materially centered understanding with a mechanistic explanation for everything. 

Thus was humanity lost in developed and developing worlds.  When everything must be scientifically explained and materially demonstrated or it is labelled false, you’ve gone from a human world to a machine world.  When you enter the machine world all your human values and ideals; your wonderful abstract relationships, must be abandoned: they are poison to the machine, and machine is all that modern technological civilization understands.  Inasmuch as it is still capable of worship, machine is what it worships.  When a choice has to be made between securing resources to keep the machine running, or protecting life and the natural environment, the needs of the machine supersede those of life. 

To claim that some things can be real while remaining outside the ability of science to categorize them is a direct assault upon the mechanistic central processing unit; an insult to technocratic machinists who label themselves scientific brains.  Such claims could very well lead to legalized lobotomy or euthanasia in the near future with the “machinists” claiming that such thoughts hamper the machine’s ability to usher in the golden age of man. 

Engineers have to explain, whether they know or not. [Magi’i of Cyador] (L. E. Modesitt, Jr.)

    Good morning Sha’Tara 😄
    Everytime I read your article one thing that comes to mind is… You write quite complex and different or May be its my incapability to understand the entire message! i feel how little I know!
    I am curious to know what was your profession? 🤔

      Hello Mann, This should be brief, I hope. The closest thing I could claim to a profession was being a Coca Cola dispensing equipment technician or “service tech” for 42 years, now retired. Although most people or “Earthians” as I call them have difficulty with the claim, I get most of my information from non-earth entities I call “the Teachers” who have shared their knowledge with me for most of my life. For me, it’s a natural condition to “hear” information which I then “decode” in my mind as best I can. They use what I call “thought forms” and not a language to communicate. I then superimpose this decoded information with my own reading and observations. It makes for an interesting and colourful life. Before you ask, yes, “the Teachers” have shown themselves to me, I know what they look like. They have human form, some of them have had experiences living on this world long ago. Hence their interest in our development.

        Thanks for your comment, Mann. When there is nothing to say, that means there is nothing to say. It means the mind is saying, “Time out, I need to think!”

    I’m afraid I’m going to annoy you again, by disagreeing. I do not accept that scientists or engineers lack the capacity to appreciate beauty in the natural world, or the ability of that beauty to lift the spirits. As a former Engineer who writes, paints and gardens, I do not believe that I am unique. I know many others like me. Come to think of it, I know no-one who matches your description of people with “a mechanistic explanation for everything.”
    I’ve confessed my lack of belief in gods. I have a similar view of ephemeral beings such as those you call ‘the teachers’. Doesn’t mean I lack feelings. I experience joy and sorrow just as keenly as the next man – or woman.
    There is a series presently on BBC TV called ‘The Big Life Fix’. In it a team of scientists and engineers come up with solutions to the problems of individuals with complex needs – from preventing sheep rustling to enabling a stroke victim to communicate. The outcomes they achieve are always moving but owe nothing to ephemeral beings and everything to the empathetic application of technology.

      It doesn’t annoy me that we don’t agree, probably never will. I can accept that, story of my life as I observe a world (the West) slipping away from its religious foundations to a kind of “social Darwinism” which did not create a new civilization but built itself upon the foundations of the old it sought/seeks to de-legitimize and replace. What concerns me is that the “new” has not only not solved man’s most critical problems but its reliance upon technology has greatly exacerbated them. I look at the big picture, the overall effects of mechanization and the application of technology, now entering the age of “the Internet of Everything. Some individuals may well be involved in trying to use science and technology to solve localized problems – I see that everywhere, but I also see an increasing reliance upon such technology and a corresponding loss of “humanity” in the exchange. The biggest issue I have is with corporate exploitation and war. They (the ponerologist exploiters and war mongers) rely upon “prostituted” anti-human science to further their aims of subduing and destroying the planet. You don’t need to tell me that such goals make no sense, these people exhibit only one trait: greed – for money and power. There is no common sense here. Bottom line, it is the vast majority of “scientists” and technicians who sell their integrity to the highest bidder to provide fracking methods and cluster bombs.

      I don’t think I ever wrote that scientists and engineers are incapable of appreciating the beauty of nature, that has nothing to do with it. There are many people who live dual lives without conflict. Surely you know the stories of Nazi “Kommandants” who ran death camps yet were wonderful family men. They never experienced a conflict of conscience because they had none. You don’t need a conscience to appreciate the beauty of nature; you do need one to be aware of the results of your research and designing of military hardware or earth-destroying extraction equipment.
