22.8. It's cracking

The complexity of society has made us thinkers, analysts, Egos, and non-authentic people.

In a natural state, where we're supposed to be – it's different.

We have created artificial relationships, artificial units like schools, government and businesses, and all types of structures that require us to regulate things, make agreements and plan for any possible events.

It forces us into a cognitive state and way of being. That is not man's natural way.

The only option we now have to get out of this situation is to reduce and simplify at all levels. All developed countries should have a Ministry of Simplification, maybe a political Drop-it/out Party.

Simplify simplify simplify.

Now, immediately, for this is our hope.

Nothing else will work because the complexity is already too great for us to handle.

In my lifetime, society has become much more complex, cumbersome, increasingly expensive to operate and more unstable year by year.

It is not the complexity as such that causes it to fall apart because we have computers to deal with it. What cracks first are people because people are nature.

People can not be treated in this industrial way; we develop mental illness. We suppress our feelings and intuition. We inflate the cognitive at the expense of the living, authentic awareness in us, so the fear increases. We're going to break, almost every single one of us.

In addition, we have steered headlessly into insane materialism. The Ministry of Simplification must also take on reducing meaningless consumption before it is too late.


That is the disadvantage of sheep; they only see the flock – everything else makes them confused and scared. They flee or freeze. Had they known better, they could have claimed their right not to be served for dinner. Because they are many, they would have succeeded.

You must react!

Sell your second car and consider whether you can do without an Audi, BMW or Tesla. Drop the meaningless cruise. Wear the clothes before throwing them away. Get your nose up from your cell phone. Understand that the media does not always serve society, even if they claim to do so. Learn to cook your own food from scratch. Find out how to wash the house without flushing chemicals into the ocean. Repair your things. Give away what you do not need. Create collective schemes everywhere to protect the little we have left of resources. Restore nature.

Not everything and everyone is as I describe, but it is all too often so.

Our focus is stolen from us.

We do not get our emotional, mental and spiritual needs fulfilled but are cunningly forced to keep the hamster wheel running, so the money keeps coming.

Status is not to flash idiocy; it is to exercise silent smartness.

I get nauseous and sometimes ashamed of my country, city, and most of my fellow citizens. You are blind, and you know it, but still insist on being first in line and hoarding all the benefits and privileges for yourself.

It's cruel because it's about life on our planet.

We are fifty years overdue. As mentioned earlier, the knowledge about the unfolding catastrophe was presented by MIT in 1972 in an analysis called The Limits to Growth. It showed that if we continue as before, the world will be in deep trouble by 2050-2070.

It was swept under the rug.

I am a claircognisant; consequently, I am also a whistleblower. Whistleblowers know something others do not know or don't want to know. Whistleblowers point to mechanisms, abuse of power and insanity. My warning applies to our civilisation, and I am number ten thousand in a line of like-minded. What I say is not new or original.

Our planet will be severely set back. Most of humanity and most of everything we have created will collapse. But Tellus, Gaia, the organic, living Earth, will regenerate.

After the disaster, no one will dream of building society like ours.

On days I think like this, unfortunately often, when I see all the nonsense around me, I go into music. It is not earthly, and it does not die.


It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.
Charles Darwin
