Modern Man is thought-by The System

We think reality into being, using the stuff of existence (which, of itself, has no meaning).

This is now obvious in the sense that facts and evidence clearly don't matter - only the power to impose ideology... which is the power to impose interpretations.

Thus reality depends on thinking. For a Christian; free will or human agency is a truth - so our thinking is chosen; for Modern Man that choice must be conscious.

If instead we choose to believe that reality is unchosen, that reality is that which is forced upon us; then we will believe that The System is reality.

Therefore, the mass majority who are passive, unchosen, unconscious; who receive reality - do not think, but are thought-by The System.

All the time.

Their thinking is a Product of ideology interpretation, applied to controlled perceptions/ manipulated emotions and memories of perceptions and emotions.

It is that first decision not to think From oneself that leads inexorably to being-thought by The System.

And The System is evil.

What do you think breaks the spell The System has over others?

@Ing. The spell is broken whenever someone thinks from/with his real self, and acknowledges it as real.

I think it's important to ask people what they genuinely feel deep down about something. For instance, I imagine the average person would admit in private that homosexual behavior is wrong. Then remind them that their gut feelings about things are FAR MORE REAL and TRUE than whatever they've been told by media/society.

I like a previous post of yours, Bruce, where you explain that most information about the world that is delivered to you (through media for example), rather than revealed by your own intuition, is very likely wrong and evil.

I do wish there was an immediate cure from the spell that most people are under. I was sure that I could at least convince my immediate friends and family to the truth, but that has proven to be more difficult than I thought. Which, while disencouraging, also makes me feel like something divine is going on here. Maybe it's supposed to be this way, for a good reason.

@Isl. It used to be possible to get good information from specialist institutions like scientists, doctors churches - but on questions of primary relevance this is no longer the case. We are on our own, each of us, each responsible for himself - including each family member. If we refuse this spiritual responsibility, we have chosen damnation because we have chosen to trust what we Know to be liars hence evil.
