I am a conspiracy theorist. Because conspiracy is everywhere.
I remember when I used to be paranoid... and everyone said that I was wrong. But if you see that people are after you, and they are, is that paranoid? No, it is seeing clearly. It is being factual. A realist.
And so is with this conspiracy, except I am not talking about the conspiracies those stupid conspiracy theorists push, but the real ones, the ones they didn't even notice.
In this article I will use 'deserving factor' and 'your worth a damn factor' interchangeably. Do they mean the same thing? I don't know. My clarity, even after having written this article is 70%... Compared to the 10% it was when I started writing it.
I just came back from climbing the steps for the second time.
I went back to step 1 on my 67 steps. I am finding that the foundational steps are really foundational, and I better hang out there a few times, to really harvest the value of the whole 67 steps.
I was looking for pictures for "accurate knowledge" on google... hardly any results. Then I looked for "garbage in garbage out, and I hit the jackpot"... I will put some of the best pictures at the end of this article... they are really funny... But now, let me get to the knowledge article.... OK, here you go:
I am reading Aristotle.
Why? It's an excellent wake-up call. It knocks you conscious... It has knocked me conscious!
2400 years ago, when Aristotle lived, people, scientists, knew very little about much of anything. They weren't less inquisitive, they didn't have less theories, they didn't argue less. They probably argued more...
They just had theories that are quite ridiculous by today's standards, knowing what we know today.
In matters of the spirit a little goes a long way.
One of the most puzzling things about Kabbalah has to do with the proportions of worldly to spiritual. It says it is 1%, as opposed to the 99% spiritual. Therefore if you do your job in the 1% reality, then the 99% reality will to its job. It is like putting in $1 to a self improvement fund, and your company would match it with $99. Good deal, isn't it.
It may be a good deal, but very few do it.
Why? Because your mindset has to be certainty, instead of waiting for it to come, or hoping, or wishing, or at the other extreme, thinking that you can only count on yourself. Or strong desire... or hoping... or "faith"... or praying... or all the happy horseshit gurus teach.
