The human race has not developed the ability to reason accurately, and that has prevented the discovery of reality which is only possible by sound deduction. False information cannot yield reality in deductive reasoning. This is a pure and simple fact. Now, one must ask why the people cannot reason accurately. I offer that it is due to enculturation.
I have assembled enough facts and applied deductive reasoning to realize that all people are forced by the fact of helplessness at birth to submit to enculturation. It is probably, and I will not say certainly, necessary. No doubt it has been the method of survival and maturation for infants and children as far back in history as we can see. I realized a bit of reality by consequence of having been “reborn” fifty years ago by the attainment of unconditional love greater than self-love. That people have come by their psychology through enculturation was not something I could say using the word until I happened upon in my study. Check out what Wikipedia says about it: Enculturation is the process by which people learn the dynamics of their surrounding culture and acquire values and norms appropriate or necessary to that culture and its worldviews. As part of this process, the influences that limit, direct, or shape the individual (whether deliberately or not) include parents, other adults, and peers. If successful, enculturation results in competence in the language, values, and rituals of the culture.
Enculturation is related to socialization. In some academic fields, socialization refers to the deliberate shaping of the individual. In others, the word may cover both deliberate and informal enculturation.
History, as we think we know it, tells us of horrors committed by humans of unconscionable insanity, for insanity is the only condition of a human that can cause them. Though there is reason to suspect that slow mental ability and capacity improvements are causal in committing those horrors, it seems more likely to me that the shaping of psychology and, thereby, opinions and/or beliefs by enculturation are the cause. Such things are created and affirmed by the same influences. The logical conclusion leads to the need for making a move in life to start over and recreate oneself by one’s own intention. I did that very thing in 1971 and lost nearly all the enculturation that was on me at the moment of my rebirth through love.
I see with my own eyes that people are not acting or thinking independently. They are processing all sense input through the filter installed during maturation by the various influences involved in enculturation and socialization. People mature to be like the society that bore them. Deviations are slow and rare. They are seldom far afield of the socially dominant themes.
Not one of you will deny that drifting away from the “norms” brings social pressure by piers and society in general. After fifty years of experiencing that pressure, I can attest that it is not likely to be endured long by many. I have endured it, but only because my drift from the enculturation was caused by love. It gave me an invincible bliss as a constant condition and opened me to the truth regardless of the shock.
The truth cuts through the enculturation in shocking insights that could destroy a person who is not reinforced by the power of love. I give credit to God for everything, but that is personal. I know God as I know him. It is, in my understanding, a veritable miracle that God provides, tolerates, and blesses every living thing with the understanding of him that is right for them at the time and in the places they exist. It makes all opinions about him, though the gender pronoun I use here is a convenience, right and necessary. It does not confirm the validity of any. I think it is unlikely that we can know God well enough to feel validated in our understanding because we are human and have human capacities. But I see no need to be validated as long as we are progressing toward love and unity. The truth is the truth. When we are all joined in the Truth, we will be finally validated and God will be as known as a human existence can know. This is important to this article because the insanity of mankind is being perpetuated by people taking the mental conditions that is enculturated in them without seeking to remake themselves as they see fit.
People are taking their psychological makeup to their graves with them having never matured to independence. There is no independence in a person who stores the enculturation of childhood and recites it until they die. I have been flabbergasted countless times by the incessant and invariable recitation of the same stuff from practically everyone. I can present them with virtually any stimuli. They always respond within a very limited range of the infinity of possible responses. They seem to cling tenaciously to the foundation of their enculturation and react uncomfortably to influences that challenge their hold. Fear is undoubtedly a reason they do such things. Imagine the problem from God’s point of view.
No matter what your view of God, you can imagine a God that knows everything and sees all. If you can go a step further and consider God’s desire to be one that wants us all to love one another and have peace on Earth, you should be able to imagine the dilemma created by fear of the truth when is controverts fictions that are protected as though life depends on them. Even an atheist can entertain this indulgence. They cling to their atheism zealously and fear discovering it to be an error. This is but one problem manifesting in just one aspect of human experience. There must be billions of others. Thus, mankind has been and is insane in the aggregate.
The rejection of this analysis is nothing new to me. I expect it and predict it. I have been exposing people to it for fifty years and seen a range of reactions repeat for most of those years. Nothing new has come along in long time. This, of course, must be related to my limited range of people to expose to the stimuli; that being that people are insane. Tell anyone that all people are insane and see what I mean. They respond like robots. They don’t break out of the enculturation that dominates their view of reality and negates their ability to manifest a sane framework of stimuli and reaction.
Insanity needs defining, but I don’t have time at the moment to provide the definition I am using. I have my definition and use only mine when I write, speak, and think. I will offer only this; we do not have peace on Earth because people are insane. The first step toward sanity is unconditional love. Until that happen in a person, they are insane. The insanity varies in character and amount and is probably unique for every individual. Love is a universal power that aligns people with the truth and brings sanity to the human condition. We all know of the countless characters of history who have told us that love is the way, the answer. I found the answer in love and have been trying to help humanity and the universe to do likewise ever since.
I took upon myself the task of helping bring love to mankind. It put me on a path that I have not wavered from in five decades. I volunteered. My life has exposed me to experiences ever since that have been invaluable in my chosen mission. Some have been very painful and difficult. Some have been experiences I would not have chosen voluntarily, but chosen paths take us where they lead and I have followed with seriousness and purpose. It has brought me to today and this time writing this article. I think it is important to understand that we are insane as long as we are products of enculturation. We must recreate ourselves. We must make ourselves as we think best and never stop refining and advancing what we think of as best. Infinity beacons. We can respond to infinity in life, but we are responding to the call of death instead.
There I have put it into words. I love each and everyone of you even if I never become aware of you. I see you acting in accord to the enculturation that you experienced growing up. You believe that you are destined to die. It is a fiction. It is insane to seek death even when it is unconsciously sought. Even the subconscious is part of sanity and insanity. You think your survival depends on dying. You think you can live until you die by eating things you kill. In other words, you think life can be sustained by killing. Fictions are preventing life. Life is not the prolonged passage to death. Life can be sustained and death can be avoided. You don’t believe this. Like the children in Peter Pan, you have to believe to fly. I have heard all your responses to my words about death until I am bored with them. So, realize that what you are thinking right now is most likely more of the same nonsense I have been listening to for fifty years. It is crazy and you are crazy for thinking it. It is not your fault you have such thoughts. It is your omission that is perpetuating them and providing a false affirmation of them. You believe you will die and that everyone will; that everyone always has; that there is no alternative or escape; that God made it that way; and on and on until you reap what you sow and think it proves your fiction.
In closing, I want to tell you that these things I am saying about death and dying are only a fraction of the things I would tell everyone. Virtually everyone of them will cause you to think the insanity is mine. You will think you are the sane one because you know that death cannot be avoided and that everyone that has ever been has died with, for some of you, exceptions for Jesus, Mohamed, Elias, and a few others. I ask you, which would you honestly prefer, death or life? If it is insane to think there is a way to escape death, it will not avert what you think sanity tells you is inescapable. If you go crazy like me and become convinced that death is the result of insanity and error, and that this insanity will not save you from death, what do you have to lose? Your supposed and claimed sanity that death is inevitable will bear you to your death even if you go crazy and start thinking it is inevitable. I’m laughing at this sequence. It is just logic and it sounds funny.
I am hoping you will go crazy like me. You think my ideas about not dying and most of the others you haven’t even heard yet are crazy. I think you are crazy for thinking it, but if I am wrong you will lose nothing by joining me if you are correct. You think noting you think can save you from your death. So, why not try something different? If you can’t become a source of unconditional love and “take up your cross,” you can at least take up a new attitude that conflicts with the believes enculturation has installed in you like the programming of a computer without harm. How can it hurt you to attempt to reject death? I will tell right here that death is a mistake that results in reincarnation until you escape death and become able to “go to heaven” and return to the earth as a physical being at will. See? I am way more crazy than you think. I am happy to be crazy in your opinion because yours has given us a history so horrible it makes life on Earth seem more like hell than anything else.
Do you think that your opinions are something new? Ha! You have opinions about inventions that are new and you have opinions shaped by discoveries that are new, but they are all founded in the same nonsense that has made the popular history of man what it is. Death from old age, death from violence, death from errors, and death and more death is our history. Wars so horrible they are not easy to think about are our heritage. Genocides and pogroms, that is our history and the future is being created by the momentum of it all. It promises more death and destruction until someone like me has enough effect on people to get it changed. I cannot do it alone and I cannot do it at all. I can have influence and plant seeds. I can do my best, but together we can do more. Even then we cannot do it. It must come from God. With that statement I will make it the next to the last. I tell you this, your beliefs do not make reality. They only change the clay of reality. A clay statue is still clay. You all have ideas of about God, but God is God; “I am that I am” and nothing else. Reality is reality. The truth is the truth. Maybe the objections to these words will help you realize that mankind is crazy and has been crazy for a long time. Many people will argue that the truth is not the truth. I am not kidding.
