As Above ... So Below

Postby pilgrim-seeker_tom » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:26 am

The reader may be wondering what the title of this OP has to do with Society, Government and Economics.

It's simply a question of "spin" ... let me try my skills as a "spin doctor"

In this particular spin the word "above" symbolizes the 1% and the word "below" symbolizes all people below the 1% in the social hierarchy of humanity.

The behaviour of the individuals in the 1% class is pretty much the same as the behaviour in the lowest class of society ... it's simply a question of scale.

Reminds me of the NT story of the woman charged with adultery ... Jesus said ... let the first man who has never sinned throw the first stone.

Skeptics may respond ... if we don't throw stones at them it will only become worse for us.

Perhaps ... yet ... at the appointed time the behaviour of all humans ... in all social classes will change.
"Never dare try to get ahead of the world." Lao Tzu
"Do not be influenced by the importance of the writer, and whether his learning be great or small; but let the love of pure truth draw you to read. Do not inquire, “Who said this?” but pay attention to what is said”

I don't believe this. The lower classes are brainwashed from the cradle with self-limiting beliefs, from religion, to virtues of hard-working ethics, to morality or humility, etc. Most people cannot get to the top because deep down they sincerely believe that they can't.

There is that but, laziness is more the culprit.
I will be bitchy, cranky, sweet, happy, kind, pain in the ass all at random times from now on. I am embracing my mentalpause until further notice. Viva lack of total control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is not a test,,, this is my life right now. Have a good day and please buckle up for safety reasons,, All those in high chairs, go in the back of the room.

this is a twisted interpretation

as above so below means as in the heaven so on earth... marco and micro are alike

the evil that is "power" always matches the level of ignorance and this holds true in the entire universe, in every dimension of existence.
The Laws Of Light, Emotions And Sexuality. http://www.celinek.net The time has come in the history of man's journey from his material jungle to his spiritual mountain top when it is imperative that he must live more and more in the cosmic Light universe of knowing, and less in the electric wave universe of sensing -- Walter Russell.
=============================================================
A Money-Free Society Is Now Reality! The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth and not to fall under the will or legislative authority of man but only have the law of nature (immutable principles) for his rule. Samuel Adams. -- http://www.earthcustodians.net

Bad fortune more so than laziness, there is an inherent sense it is all rigged, perhaps by men, perhaps by AI, perhaps by the universe itself.

I have to disagree, you speak of human ideas or beliefs. Nature is the likeliest reason.

In terms of human interactions, which are far removed, could be human, AI, or spiritual meddling at play.

Socially speaking, it involves controlling the Media, Medicine, and Money. If they choose feminism as The Ideal, feminism is spread throughout.

The only absolute certainty is formed by the absolute lack of alternatives.
It is not merely "do what works", but "to accomplish what purpose in what time frame at what cost".

Amid the lack of certainty, put faith in the wiser to believe.
