I spent the majority of Monday morning in a court room, watching and sitting patiently as many people came before the judge to receive ruling for the ‘crimes’ they’d committed. The courtroom had been nearly empty when I’d arrived, but by the time court was about to be started, the room had filled with people until there was standing room only.
I sat through many cases as I waited for the case in which I was a witness to have it’s turn before the judge. I watched the sort of pre-programmed dance that takes place, and you know that it happens much the same everyday. The same routine, the same players, the same words being spoken, over and over, as if it never ends, and just goes on infinitely. Eventually, there will be a different judge, as the thickly-framed portraits of past judges on the wall clearly indicate, and there will be different officers, and lawyers, and so-called ‘criminals’, and yet, the system, continues just the same.
And it’s All totally Unnecessary. All these people standing and sitting here for hours, awaiting a life-changing decision to be made by someone they’ve never met. While lawyers put into use the hours and hours of information they’ve learned in law school, to be able to act as the ‘facilitators’ in this court process, acting as the liason or ‘translator’ between the judge and defendant, as more often than not, the defendant has almost no knowledge of the law whatsoever.
Fascinatingly, the Judicial system operates based on a form of ‘debt’, similar to how our money system does, and similar to the religious idea that man is ‘born in sin’- basically a ‘you fucked up and now you must pay’ kind of viewpoint, wherein those that are brought in facing charges are simply judged and given a punishment. They committed the crime, they broke the law, they fucked up, and now they must ‘pay’ their debt. It is simply a system which judges for the past, and does not consider in any way any kind of solution. It doesn’t look to see why people are choosing to break these laws and face punishment, it is simply punishing and charging a fee, of course.
As I sat there all morning, watching this orchestrated dance take place, it struck me, just how obviously completely unnecessary this whole process is. It is not doing anything to actually stop crime, and therefore it is just a process that’ll keep repeating endlessly, all these people here, for no reason, sitting in room all day, watching the lawyers say their lines, directing the defendants, stand here, raise your hand, say these words…
How pointless this is when most crime can be stopped simply by implementing a new monetary system, a system that is based on equality and not inequality- because most crime is theft due to some having less than others- which is a result of the current capitalist system. Just imagine what we could be doing, what all the people in that courtroom could be doing, if there was no crime, no ‘criminals’ to be processed- the possibilities are limitless with an Equal Money System in which we’ll no longer be limited and enslaved by Money. Where we will be free to create systems in which people can actually be supported rather than judged and sentenced and punished, which often leads one further down a life of crime.
Investigate Equal Money.
I walk here in a process of aligning myself til I stand in all ways as the living principle of what is best for all life. I am 100% committed to this process that I walk, as I see and realize that there is literally nothing else worth doing, whatsoever. To do anything else, would simply be a lie, I would be living a lie and thus my life would be empty, meaningless, useless, pointless, unsatisfying completely- I know, I have spent most my life walking that path of ignorance and deception- to the point that I was not even aware, that I was existing as nothing more than a robot, a mind consciousness system, and I had never actually Lived, my whole entire life, was like an illusion, not of it real.
Where was I? I was not ‘here’, not here as myself, as who I am, as a physical being in this existence- I was ‘lost’ within a mind system- within a whole fabricated constructed universe within myself. A Universe which is not real, doesn’t exist in Reality, in the Physical- and thus I practically, did not Exist. All my behaviors were controlled and predesigned within and through the mind consciousness system. I was not Here- and yet-
I was. I have always been here- even when I was existing as a mind system and hadn’t realized myself here as the physical, one and equal to the physical existence- I was here acting as the mind system- giving it life- living as it. It’s always been ‘Me’.
There was always a choice- in all the moments that’s gone Before- where I acted as the mind, there was always a choice, even if I didn’t realized or see it at the time. Sometimes I didn’t, sometimes I did- Deliberately chose to act as and live as the mind, other times it was as if I ‘had no choice’ due to the extent of preconditioning and preprogramming to such extent that I would immediately act as the mind, and no longer see ‘what I actually was giving permission to’, as I had given permission so many times before, it had become a subconscious habit. A part of my ‘ingrained nature’ so to speak. And so you can see how our ‘nature’ is simply programming, and not some ‘set in stone’ ‘unchangeable’ ‘concrete’ thing. It only seems like that, due to the extent to which we’ve accepted the programming as our ‘nature’.
I have walked enough of my Life as this Lie of Consciousness, enough to have experienced first hand, the pain and suffering that come from this, living a life of self-deception and self-separation- wherein I’m actually, literally, ‘split’ into myself as the ‘mind’ and myself as the physical. It’s when you see that that you can realize how truly bizarre that is. How we have become so separated from ourselves as the physical, that we’ll even abuse ourselves as the physical, extensively, in total disregard for the physical which is how we even are able to exist in this physical reality.
I remember, when I was younger, it was so strange to me, that it seemed we totally disregarded ourselves as the physical. I didn’t at the time have the vocabulary to put it into words, but I do now. I noticed how ‘everyone else’ in my world, which for the most part was adults, seemed to totally ignore themselves as the physical- the way they moved, the things they did, the things they said, it seemed like they were even, in a way, ‘purposefully’ or ‘deliberately’ ignoring themselves as the physical. It seemed to me, that one might be interested to explore oneself as the physical- upon finding oneself Here, in a physical human body- which is quite a fascinating piece of organic ‘machinery’, the likes of which man has yet to create anything like, as the physical is the representation of ultimate cooperation and support, and man has been anything but– as how this world currently exist clearly shows.
But of course, as one get older, you start to ‘understand’ why no one is considering the physical- because they are all much to busy as they are enslaved by the great ‘invisible machine’ of the System- which keeps them busy all the time, through and within it’s neat little Polarity Traps. Such as ‘Work’ and ‘Entertainment’- Wherein either you are busy working some predesigned job in the system, or you are busy trying to ‘entertain’ yourself as defined as spending the money you’ve earned during the time you were busy working- and it’s in polar cycles like these that the adults would go back-and-forth.
I know because I got ‘swept up’ into the machine as well, and became just another ‘cog’. I too gave in to all the Justifications and Fears and just accepted things as ‘that’s the way it is’ ‘there’s just nothing you can do about it’ ‘it must be your fate’, ‘it’s not so bad’ ‘It Could Be Worse’..
And that last statement shows that we are aware that there are others who indeed have it much worse. And we use our Fear of becoming like them, to justify keeping our heads down, as long as we have some degree of comfort. As if, keeping our heads down, and ignoring whatever has caused some to be suffering, is actually going to prevent it from happening to us. Couldn’t be farther from the truth. It is the exact opposite, in fact, because the way to make sure that we never end up ‘like that’ would be to investigate why does it happen, and then do whatever it takes to make sure it DOESN’T. happen anywhere, to anyone, ever again. Then, obviously, it can’t happen to You.
So, it’s within these realizations, that I walk this path of aligning myself to considering ALL THINGS from that perspective- of how to Create a world where None Suffer- because that will Ensure that I live in a World where I will not have to suffer. It is such profoundly Simple Common Sense- and yet, it’s a process I walk to get to the point where I actually in fact, live this Principle in All Ways, because this has Never been done before, Ever. Looking at the World- you can see we have a ‘long’ way to go yet. All the more reason not to Waste anymore Time- we’ve wasted our whole Lives- now finally, we can Start Living- working toward the goal of being able to really fully be here and express ourselves freely, as we’d like, and not be enslaved to the Money system, which determines our entire Lives for us- even whether you Live or Die. Quite fucked up, isn’t it.
It’s never ‘too late’ to Start Giving Yourself back to You, picking up all the pieces you gave away to the Mind System, reamalgamating the parts of yourself, til you stand here Whole and Sound.

Stand Up and Be a Real Human!
We know this, our science knows this, and yet, we seem to somehow have entirely missed that point…
In an blog from Discover titled “Why Did Consciousness Evolve, and How Can We Modify It?” is a quote from a psychologist Bruce Bridgeman who wrote in 1992 that “Consciousness is the operation of the plan-executing mechanism, enabling behavior to be driven by plans rather than immediate environmental contingencies.”
Bam. There you have it. Consciousness is a system which is predesigned, which when one is a slave to their consciousness system, one will act according to a ‘plan’, wherein your behavior has been predesigned and is acted out according to a preset plan, regardless and irrelevant to what is actually going on in your environment, in reality.
And yet, we still ‘cling’ to an idea that we are ‘consciousness’, that ‘consciousness’ is ‘who we are’, and that we are somehow ‘better’ or ‘intelligent’ because we have this ‘consciousness’ thing. Which couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Consciousness has you acting from a preprogrammed script, wherein you’re simply following a predesigned behavior pattern, and thus you’re not really ‘here’ in the real world, as yourself, ‘acting’ as yourself, expressing yourself in the moment, but you’re just a robot, a lifeless robot following the commands of the preprogrammed consciousness system.
Now, it is so fascinating and out-rightly bizarre that we seem to believe, on an extensive level, that without consciousness, we would somehow be ‘lifeless robots’. WTF? We actually have fooled ourself into believing that consciousness makes us ‘unique’ and ‘creative’, etc. When, in fact, it is the total opposite, and the mind is actually a machine of limitation.
The author describes the premise for the article as follows: “My point was that if we understand the evolutionary basis of consciousness, maybe this will help us envision new ways our consciousness might evolve further in the future. That could be fun in terms of dreaming up new stories.”
However, now that you realize just what the consciousness system is, why would we be interested in it evolving? Why would you want it to actually develop further, once you realize it’s purpose, function, and design, is literally to trap you into preprogrammed behaviors, thus rendering you into nothing more than a broken record, simply repeating the same limited behaviors, over and over again, until you’re dead, and that’s it, that’s how you spent your life, as nothing but a machine. The last line kind of sums it up- do you want to spend your life ‘dreaming up stories’, or do you want to Live, actually Live?
The author continues, hypothesizing a ‘reason’ for why humans don’t take any action to solve any of the problems in the world: “I also believe that part of what inhibits us from taking effective action against long-term problems—like the global environmental crisis — may be found in the evolutionary origins of our ability to be aware”
Now, firstly to clarify, here what the author is referring to when he says “our ability to be aware”, is the specific capabilities, or lack thereof, of our physical senses and the ‘range’ of data we are able to interpret. Basically, giving a very literally interpretation of “out of sight, out of mind”, the author suggests that we are actually impaired from concerning ourselves with what’s going on in the world when we don’t see it right in front of us. However, if we know there are problems in the world, then we are actually ‘aware’ of them, which proves that we do not need to ‘see it’ right in front of us to be aware of what is going on in this world. What actually ‘inhibits’ us from taking action, is ourselves. Is our own deliberate ignorance and avoidance of the problems, within the delusional belief that we are somehow not complicit in them.
Fascinatingly, the author notes, “Consciousness does seem to be for one being at a time.”
And he has basically hit the nail on the head of the CON of consciousness, where consciousness only considers itself, where it’s limited to only itself, and has separated itself from everything else, from all the rest of life here, into a tiny, diminished, limited little existence.
The author ends by posing a question: “What if we reengineer things so that we see what others in our group see, or so that when you do something good, the entire group feels good, rather than just you? This kind of consciousness has been explored in science fiction (The Borg on TV), and in art (Mathieu Brand’s Ubiq). We even know mechanisms of how something like the hive mind of bees work, such as regulation of the division of labor through various genes and hormones. Could something like this be the antidote to the endemic selfishness of Homo sapiens?”
Here we see the mistake that is so commonly being made, which is to make the physical responsible for the behavior of the human, which only serves the purpose of enslaving the human, because if the human believes it can’t be changed, then the human can’t change it. It’s one of the cleverly-stupid tricks we’ve played on ourself to avoid ever having to actually change who we are and what we are living as, and in so doing, we ultimately doom ourself to being nothing more than an organic robot.
Funny how we always seem to link ‘consideration for the whole’ to images we define as ‘robot-like’ and ‘alien’, such as ‘The Borg’, as the author notes.We couldn’t have it more Backwards..
Like, for example, even though it’s recommended to do English and Math classes first, I did not, and I found myself sweating some bullets when I had to write a few papers. But then, in the syllabus of a class I’m just about to start, was given the basic structure/design of how to write a paper, and instantly, it ‘all came flooding back’, and I remember learning this years ago, almost as if it were yesterday, and it was not so difficult then, it was simply a matter of ‘filling in the blanks’, basically, kind of like, you’re already given a skeleton- you just must flesh it out, and doing that is basically just a ‘sorting’ or ‘placing’ of information, in such a way that makes a kind of very simplistic sense in terms of allocating information into a standard format. Which will also then set you up in ‘what to expect’ when reading such a paper, as well.
Ha, fascinating how it goes both ways like that- reminds me of something like sports, like wrestling or kendo, where you have ‘set’ or predesigned moves you can do, and each player works within those moves to play the game as according to the rules. If both the players did not follow form, the game wouldn’t work, it would fall apart, it depends on those predetermined roles and each player playing those roles. Which is a point that’s reflected in many things, in many ways, many aspects of ourself.
Just have a look at where do we play roles with each other, to create some kind of a special dimension or alternate reality, that would not exist if we didn’t all play the parts. I mean, if you have a look, this world is almost entirely like that, full of roles we all play, as little parts in the system, and some have more ‘leading roles’, lol.
Strange how we’ve gone here, from writing to leadership, but actually not strange at all, when you consider how the rules, the laws, the policies, that govern our lives are all fundamentally based on written words. The foundations of our very government come down to written documents, and in many ways, it’s become it’s own language that only some can really read and write and understand, and therefore many of us are basically ‘at the whim’ of laws which we don’t even understand or know how they came to be.
Much advantage has been taken due to this fact, which is really unacceptable. What we need now, and what is busy happening to an extent with the internet, is the equalizing of understanding, equalizing of education, so that no one is ‘left in the dark’ so to speak. So that we can all stand here in an equal understanding of how the systems which we take part in every day and get our daily bread from actually operate, so that we can make sure that the systems which we’re participating in are giving Everyone their ‘daily bread’, rather than only some while the rest are literally ‘left to die’, as the system disregards those who have no voice to speak up with, they have no words they can use to change their situation. Therefore those of us that can speak up, must do so, for the sake of us all.
I’m sure at some point you’ve been asked the question if you could be an animal, what would you be?
I’ve thought, ooh a cat would be cool to run and jump around and climb trees with my claws, or some kind of a fish or whale or dolphin to swim around and jump and ride the waves, or of course, a bird to fly and sail through the sky..
However, when I imagine if I really was one of these animals, and what my life would actually be like, I find the thought actually terrifying~ when you look at the harsh reality of how nature currently exist, of how this world currently exist, and what the current experience of the animals is like~ no way~ do I want to go through that! It is hard enough to be in this world as a human, which is a practically limit-less form compared to the animal forms!
But if in this world, we actually supported the animals, within the realization and consideration of the limits of their forms~ then obviously, there’d be no reason to fear being an animal in a limited form whatsoever~ because I’d Know that I am Supported.
We need an Equal Money System so that we can be the Stewards of this World~ Us Humans with the Un-Limited Forms~ the Only Ones that’s in a Position to Do So. Imagine what kind of a World this can be~
On the radio today they were mentioning about some recent deaths involving car accidents where people were talking on their cell phones, and at one point the speaker commented that ‘cell phones are really bad at taking our attention’ or something along those lines, and what’s fascinating is how the responsibility is put on the ‘cell phone’ as if it is the ‘cell phone’ which makes it hard to concentrate or focus, and thus it’s no surprise that these kind of situations happen, because it shows how detached we are from considering our own responsibility for our actions, for our inattention- no cell phone can ‘make’ you not pay attention to the road- that is You doing that- it’s You that decide- therefore, it’s Your responsibility to make sure that you do not Fucking hit people while you are driving.
If you can/can’t talk on a cell phone and drive at the same time, I don’t give a fuck either way, doesn’t matter- it’s up to You to know what you can/can’t do- it’s up to You to see whether you are effectively paying attention or not. It’s up to You to Not Hit Anyone. If you can’t do that, You’ll Pay the Consequence, and try to make sure No One Else Pays for it with you. What happens in the Physical can’t be Undone, when it’s Too Late, it’s Too Late.
During a recent visit with my mom, I saw some cool examples of the effects of having access to information can have on one’s perception/understanding of the world and what’s here. I had brought my American Government textbook with me, as I had some reading homework I needed to do, specifically on a chapter about Political Parties, our Two Party System, and the History of Political Parties in the U.S.
I was kneading some dough to make pretzels as I’d decided to do some baking while I was there, as at my own home there is not a working oven, so I was going to suggest she read aloud from the book. The book was sitting on the table, and before I’d said anything about it, she went right to it and sat down and opened it up and started reading, so I, teasingly, said- “Ehem, I can’t quite hear what you’re reading”. So then she began to read out-loud, which I mentioned was cool to get practice in voicing oneself.
She has not really been one to get particularly involved in politics, but probably has considered herself a Democrat, and she’s Canadian, though she has gotten U.S. Citizenship recently. However her husband considers himself Republican and has been more involved, well actually, I guess it’s not so much ‘involvement’ as in actually doing things or taking action to support the party, but rather being active in having opinions and discussing with others and watching the news and caring about the issues of that specific party. For the most part, I think they just try to avoid talking politics with each other and just tolerate that point, so it’s a kind of suppressed point between them.
My mom has also had jobs which keep her fairly exposed to other members of the community where she lives, and where people tend to know each other and be very gossipy about each other, such as working at the local grocery store and working in a retirement home. As a result, she has been faced with public opinions and has had some ‘clashes’ with those who define themselves as Republicans, and live out that pre-designed program of specifically designed opinions and beliefs.
So, with that bit of background explained- As she was reading about the history of the parties, she was quite fascinated to find that there have been times where there was only one party in existence, or that there was once a party called the Democratic-Republicans, and she rushed off with the book to go read this to her husband and share with him. Which was really cool to see this curiosity and eagerness to learn and share. It just shows what happens when one has the access, because the $100 textbook was sitting right there, the only reason it was there is because I bought it, and I would not have known about this book if I hadn’t been ‘introduced’ to it through the college course I’m taking and needed it for- and I wouldn’t have access to go to college if it wasn’t for the ‘decent-paying’ job I have combined with government financial aid that allows me to just be able to afford it, a couple classes at a time.
Imagine what life would be like in an Equal Money System, where all would have access to Information and Education, where Information is no longer withheld for the sake of profit, keeping others suffering in ignorance, just to make a buck off the ones that can manage to pay. What kind of a fucked up world are we accepting and allowing? It’s time to stop treating ourselves like slaves who have no value, who can only get value through toiling and struggling, and stand up for a system which will support us. Equal Money System = Equal Education for All
