One cannot help but notice the utter madness of rhetoric found from extreme portions of human consciousness in the middle of 2018, our collective planetary "calendar" made by man himself. Funny how nobody questions how or why the common calendar number of July 19, 2018 exists anyway. We all owe this reality to the ancient Egyptians and later, the Romans using the Julian system.
Surprisingly some modern day demagogue hasn't declared this number null and void yet starting at nothing calling this the New Age. Indeed it certainly is on many levels as mankind or sorry, humankind evolves into something just not quite right. When will the vails of truth be transparent and our minds free of influences of distortion?
In the struggle of the human condition and its move into artificial influences proclaimed as technological advancement, we find ourselves losing track with basic truths. Far too many external influences mesmerize our complex brains into useless matter completely void of useful desires or endeavors. Most of us are just trying to survive in a World that can only be described as disturbed.
There are many schools of thought to these basic ponderings all of which have profound distinctions. For advanced species to evolve there should be no question of basic realities and no motivations for manipulation.
Perception has become a social distortion of the human condition. This begs the question of what forces are at work causing this, if any?
