Without exaggeration, if there is a more important video, I cannot think of it, but finding value from this post does not necessitate viewing it.
When totalitarianism is simply defined as the rulers ruling the ruled, I struggle to avoid realizing the totalitarian control everywhere. In vague short, we live in terribly concerning times, at least on the one hand.
Of course, at least on the other hand, the fear that may be incited ironically by that video needs careful consideration.
Fear is great for identifying a problem and the priority of the solution in accordance with the intensity of that fear. Beyond that, fear is a terrible distraction against the composure and therefore competence needed to properly adapt.
I have lived an offbeat-but-practical life for about five decades, and in tune with my parallel earthly persona (who may or may not be real) have brought over a belief system called Wavism (sometimes casually referred to as the religion of rationality).
There is unfortunately a disastrous void between philosophy and science, but thankfully easily filled with “scilosophy” (not “sillyosophy” fwiw) — which combines the intention of philosophy with pure adherence to the scientific method (i.e. the pure application of unspun rationality).
Some people separate logic from emotion. Wavists do not. Reality (obviously including our emotions) is logical, but we cannot always grasp the logic within reality (to put it mildly).
Wavists understand that reality is pure energy, which means reality is purely wavy, which means reality is purely sinusoidal (see the mainstream scientifically established Fourier theorem), which means reality is purely logical (a sine wave is a logical result).
Thousands of years ago, humanity experienced electricity powerfully blasting through and from the sky, with an intense plurality of water drops pummeling the surface. To them, that was illogical. To humanity today, science logically explains that stormy phenomenon. What was once considered illogical has been logical the entire time.
Every emotion has a sensible reason behind it, even if veiled against our mental capacity (e.g. due to overwhelming complexity). With reference to the popular science fiction show known as Star Trek, this is not Spock logic, where Spock stated an odd human reaction is illogical, because he did not understand it. Humanity is exploring the depths of the unimaginably enormously complex reality to expand the puzzle pieces (i.e. leverage) that facilitate communication and understanding for optimal adaptation within reality.
The scientific method is literally the only thing held sacred within Wavism, because of its permanently unchanging and fundamentally governing nature in ways beyond common understanding these days — including a way that healthily crushes the mental illness that fuels totalitarianism. Moreover, sense-making is needed to verbalize towards a genuinely peaceful mutual understanding, while irrationality is always the weaponizing of meaning. The scientific method is the only path to genuine peace within reality.
As it wonderfully turns out, mainstream science (more specifically, mainstream physics) offers extremely powerful and simplistic scilosophical conclusions — ones that run so deep into the “heart” of reality, that spiritualized logic sensibly becomes a fitting term.
Coming posts, and a Wavism basics page, are forthcoming, reality permitting (ofc and as always).
We will continue to emphasize the Rule of Reality, which simply scientifically states… The path to power is the path to powerlessness in a balanced reality. That Rule is a (if not the) verbalization of the physicality of reality itself (so not just philosophical nor religious).
We will raise awareness of (and dive further into) the Sensible Soul — since there is no scientific reason to believe a genuinely objective boundary exists, you objectively are reality (i.e. existence itself).
Mainstream science allows us to understand that dominance is always ultimately paid for via a balancing counter-dominance, which forces humanity to redefine dominance in a way that unavoidably ends greed (i.e. power addiction), and ends the notion of ever being able to get away with nasty behavior in general.
Mainstream science allows us to sensibly end the fear of death.
No irrational dogma needed.
If you find value within all of that, then you are always welcome to hang out with yours truly on this front.
For now, instead of reading more of my expression here, I highly recommend healthily finding 22 minutes to view the “aforembedded” video, as it offers a solid and fairly fundamental perspective worthy of consideration towards our preferably healthier lives.
