Beware of language and culture

If you're not careful culture and language can trap you and drag you down, yet they are central to your life experience and if you make enough effort they can also be tools and platforms for a lot of freedom.

Climate change or cultural change?

famine

By Stella Baker.


This is serious business

On one level among ourselves this is all about communication, and sharing, and compassion, and empathy, and community, and society. This is about building consensus. But see when we turn away from our family, our community, and even our society and we turn to the hostile world outside, this is when it becomes propaganda. It becomes a struggle for the hearts and minds of people everywhere.

People grinning themselves to death

canvassers

Introduction

This is an article about the significant social issue which has developed throughout the world and that issue is the incompatibility between technology and hierarchy. Prior to the development of the microchip and information technology there was no threat to the hierarchies in the world because secrets could be kept and information could not be so readily shared. Those in power have shared the internet and world wide web, believing that it would be easier to share information, to keep tabs on people, and to sell people stuff that they don't need. But what they didn't reckon on was that information could be shared much more easily, things can be much more easily misunderstood, lies could be much more easily spread and it's now almost impossible to keep a secret.

Truth is relative to perception

fractal

By Stella Baker.


One of the things which science has so far failed to establish is what is truth. One theory holds that there are different versions of the truth. Truth can be something you tell someone else about you. Truth can also be something you tell someone else about them. Truth can be something you tell someone else about another person. Then you have the truth that you tell yourself about someone else. But truth is also what you tell everyone about everything. But one thing should be patently obvious.

About trauma, pain and fear

moon

By Stella Baker.


Much of what society is about is secret and hidden

That which is the most secret and hidden in society lies in the suffering, trauma, heartaches, pain, fears, daily struggles, guilt, shame, anxiety, exasperation and rage felt by many individual members of society. Between the sufferers and the comfortable lies a gulf of indifference, ignorance, social stigma and judgment. This creates a lot of opportunity for exploitation by the fixers, do gooders and self-appointed saviours in society, many of who only exacerbate the trauma or perpetuate it even further.

Who do you see when you look in a mirror?

Do you just see your face? Or can you see deeper and notice the empty space behind your eyes? Do you see the emptiness of who you really are in reality?

Why do you need an ideology?

carrot

By Stella Baker.


The simple principle of ideology

The psychology behind all ideology is quite simple. You need an authority figure with a proposal, based on simple carrot and stick psychology, who offers access to the carrot in a way which avoids the stick. The other person in this transaction is the follower, and this is someone who believes that by following the figure of authority they're going to get the carrot and avoid the stick. All ideologies, be they political or religious are based on this simple transaction. That is the theory.

The practice of thinking

brain

By Stella Baker.


What is thought?

Any thought is an image or meme generated out of memory through the biological and chemical process of thinking activity in the brain. The basis of thought is consciousness and the manipulation of consciousness, but thought is an individual meme which is reflective of memory and recreated in the mind as a reflection of memory which goes towards the development of an idea or concept. Thinking is a process which is related directly to conception, and thought is the outcome of thinking or conception because thought requires the activity of thinking to come into being. Therefore thought is any meme or fragment of an idea or concept which comes into being as a result of thinking and conception.
