Wanting, Having, and the Two Games

Buddhists found that “wanting” was a source of a lot of human suffering, so many of their adherents go to monasteries and live without anything, and as a result defeat wanting, but they’re not abundant either and still in lack consciousness; the best they are able to achieve with such a lifestyle is neutrality, not abundance. Christians also practice something similar to Buddhists with their monasteries and other tricks to […] Read more »

A Psychology Scholar Reacts to the “Persona” Video Games

RE: slaying shadows within the collective unconscious rather than personal shadows, I will say that after I had done a substantial amount of personal shadow work over a 14 year period, I then started tackling a lot of collective shadows to better understand them, and from that I learned even more about myself, and found more personal shadows. My collective shadow slaying (integration) lasted another 8 years or so. I […] Read more »

Confirmation Bias as a Negative Strategy to Resolve Contradictions Through Pressuring Conformity

I recently had a run in with a person who was very argumentative with my partner, but it turned out it was due to the contradictions and contrast my partner was providing to him about his own limited worldview, and in an attempt to restore the status quo, he looked up everything he could find that contradicted my partner’s viewpoint and confirmed his own. When one seeks only viewpoints that […] Read more »

The TRUTH about Bank Privacy

The Bank Secrecy Act in America flipped the burden of proof and created a “moral gray area” where people were now considered “guilty until proven innocent”, evidenced by the banks now tracking financial data on all transactions $10,000 and above (see the video at the bottom of the article). That gray area eventually became so large that all government intrusion via regulation now tracks every single transaction that we make, […] Read more »

Why Solitude Promotes Greatness – Academy of Ideas

I can verify that I have found solitude, especially with partnerships with conscious women, fertile ground for my personal growth over the years.

Critical Thinking Recommended Reading List

“Critical thinking is thinking about your thinking while you’re thinking in order to make your thinking better.” ~Richard Paul “The over-whelming preponderance of people have not freely decided what to believe, but, rather, have been socially conditioned (indoctrinated) into their beliefs.

Boundaries & Affirmations for Channeling the “Other Side”

It is really easy to figure out lies here in this world through the use of logic, verifying evidence, examining the philosophy of something, and cross referencing it with morality, however, it is far more difficult to use such skills when speaking to beings on the other side of the veil, because we really just can’t verify how things actually are over there due to our inability to verify it […] Read more »

Self-Direction, Conscientiousness, and Locus of Control/Identity

The self-direction of one’s life is a fundamental natural right inherent within all rational beings, it is sometimes called self-ownership, self-government, self-mastery, self-determination, and individual autonomy.  It is not something that is given to anyone, rather it is something that must be claimed through taking responsibility for one’s thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and outcomes, and through demonstrating the enjoyment of one’s rights. In order to claim one’s rights and enjoy them, […] Read more »

GAB AI: The Best AI Chat Bot I Have Used

I have found that most AI chat bots are extremely biased and occult/hide important information, and at times will even blatantly lie and make things up. I have a philosophy and psychology chat bot that I have used, and it would frequently botch basic philosophical and/or psychological questions, and in some cases, be completely unable to give the correct answer. For example, when I’d ask it about the Trivium Method, […] Read more »

Do Not Judge?

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. ~Matthew 7:1-2 This is a karmic law, and not telling us to avoid all judgment.

What does “Mandatory” Actually Mean?

When something is mandatory, are we always obliged to obey it as if it is an objective law, such as those found in nature? Is it a criminal matter, a civil one, a commercial one?

This begs the question, are commands issued from […] Read more »
