“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge
How long can one perpetuate a lie?
It would seem that the natural law principles of mentalism and correspondence are not being applied with respect to the constructed reality ie artificial reality relating to these lies.
Did they go to the moon? Do atomic weapons exist? Is fluoride good for your health? Are vaccinations harmful to ones health? Is killing the life in the soil the way to grow food?
If one does an inventory of what one knows to be true and then an inventory of what one believes to be true, if one is honest, what one knows to be true does not amount to much. Belief can be true but not necessarily. Truth is a discovery.
If human beings did not maintain the creation they make then all returns to nature eventually. The artificial world of man is a lie. Only nature holds the truth.
Instructive is the story of Airships eg R-101. The artificial world of man has his creations and they are not always useful. When they are not useful they cease to be of interest.
However, for all of man’s creations there are adverse consequences. For example mechanical slaves help with man’s burdens but what are the effects on his physiology? Can you imagine telling some one some hundred plus years ago that in the future one would pay to get exercise in a gym?
Interestingly man is truly amazing. Imagine telling someone before auto-mobiles came into existence that, in the future, someone could get in a car and drive towards you at 100+km/h and miss crashing into you by two feet whilst you are driving towards them at a similar speed. Who wants to loose that capability with driver-less cars?
So what evidence is there that we went to the moon multiple times, playing golf and driving moon buggies, without failure and then throw it all away?
What evidence is there that atomic weapons exist but they are not used in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Vietnam, but just twice on small towns in Japan and these towns are flourishing today?
So is the natural law principle of mentalism being wielded here where information is being repeatedly inserted (believed) into the mind of the unthinking masses (not possible to un-hear) We must program our own mind and nourish it with truth.
The natural law principle of correspondence would guide us to sense that as with the Airship story when man’s creations fail to overcome the principles of nature the creation dies out.
We can also follow the money and follow the fear porn to discover more about what is likely to be true.
As said by Buddha, “Three things can not be long hidden, the sun, the moon and the truth.”
Can you find a dead thought? Truth is a discovery you have to make, not a belief in what you read or are told.
