In my last articles I CN505 power station out the fatal flaws of the current ruling paradigm; the paradigm of materialism rooted in dualistic thinking. Materialism not only fails to explain many essential aspects of our reality, but its logical structure also fails.
Materialism fails to explain past life recall, reincarnation, near death experience, telepathy, telekinesis and so forth… even though evidence for all these phenomena is well documented and statistically unassailable. Materialism fails to explain the origin of life on Earth, speciation, consciousness… and yet science is holding on to this false belief system, this illusion, seemingly at all cost.
Materialism also fails by internal logic; matter, considered fundamental by materialism, is convertible into energy and energy into matter. Nuclear energy and particle accelerators do this conversion every day, without doubt. If matter were truly fundamental, the ultimate basis of all existence, this conversion could not happen.
For matter to be converted into energy and for energy to be converted into matter there must be a common functioning principle through which the conversion occurs… and the CFP of matter/energy must by definition be more fundamental than either matter or energy. Matter and energy are the flip sides of a more fundamental CFP, whatever it may be.
The power of illusionary belief is immense; mainstream science is constrained by false belief, by illusion. The dogmas of materialist science are rooted in illusion; no evidence showing the failure of the prevailing paradigm or illusion is examined or even admitted to exist. The taboo against such investigation is too powerful for all but a few mavericks who investigate reality in spite of mainstream dogma.
History is filled with examples of the power of illusion; when the illusion that the Earth is flat prevailed, voyagers were afraid to travel out to sea because they would ‘fall off the edge’. When Galileo showed that the Earth is not at the center of the universe, the powers that be… in his case cardinals of the Catholic Church… refused to look through his telescope. Looking at the evidence was forbidden by taboo. Looking and seeing would have been an admission that their beliefs, aka illusions, were wrong.
Eventually all illusion is shattered; once the illusion of a flat earth vanished, sailors crossed the seas without any fear of ‘falling off the edge’. Once the illusion that the Earth is at the center of the universe vanished, science and cosmology progressed without hindrance.
The biggest illusion of all is the illusion of power. Specifically, real power is conflated with illusion of power. The US military is arguably the most powerful in the world. The destructive power inherent in the myriad guns, bullets, rockets, and bombs this military commands is beyond doubt. The illusion lies in the belief that a single man, the Commander in Chief, controls this awful power. The illusion is that hundreds of thousands of humans acts at the whim of one person; that the ‘chain of command’ represents real power.
The chain of command is an illusion, and has power only if and as long as the illusion remains intact. Mutinies, military stand-downs, revolutions, civil wars are all examples of shattered illusion. Once shattered, illusion loses power. Such is the fate of all illusion, even if extraordinary efforts are made by TPTB to maintain an illusion.
