Why Only the Worldview “Reality” can save humankind – Part 2
So, what would this "Reality" social system look like?NOTES HERE - but there are issues already revealing themselves, in how this might work...which have made me doubt, that without the type of system which western folks hate, some form of totalitarian system, there is no way to re-work the system which rises above the mess… Continue reading Why Only the Worldview “Reality” can save humankind – Part 2
Why Only the Worldview “Reality” can save humankind – Part 1
Because all ideologies are essentially "putting a spin on reality", and because there is no way to have all humans agree on one ideology, the world needs a "Reality (in Society) Party" where the ideology is Reality itself. The spin focusing on individual rights has put the priority of our societal health in the backseat,… Continue reading Why Only the Worldview “Reality” can save humankind – Part 1
The fallacy of: “Society must be responsible for “my personal Right to be accepted for who i am .”
It is high time to let go of the 21st century dysfunctional concept of “Society is responsible for fixing my sense of need for approval, and for fixing "my need to feel accepted.” On the other hand, this in no way negates our individual duty to "do unto others as we would have them do… Continue reading The fallacy of: “Society must be responsible for “my personal Right to be accepted for who i am .”

In the last century, we have moved through a number of deeper levels to smaller and smaller particles. In those early days… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness as the Source of All
A Society Catch 22……
i am asking myself, after seeing a news item that said "Our discarded COVID19 masks are now harmful for the environment", and while i see the point of this, i wonder, "What is the base guideline of how to define "important" in our society?" How do we gauge what is more important and less important?… Continue reading A Society Catch 22……

It is part of an arrogant worldview which needs to be dealt with and eradicated, in order for ingrained social and racial injustice to be dealt with effectively.Eurocentrism is a part of a larger worldview of… Continue reading We need to alter humanities current direction!
Reality dispels superstition – dealing with populist structures Monism dispels the myths of Dualism
I would like to suggest the following...... Our physical world is built out of positive/negative dualistic physics, and human experience frames everything on that dualistic way of seeing everything (perceived good and evil)..... but we humans are also necessarily a part of the monistic oneness... (oneness at the root of it all) which our physical… Continue reading Reality dispels superstition – dealing with populist structures Monism dispels the myths of Dualism
