You know the butterfly effect? What would happen if we decided that everyone in Canada is entitled to a continuous supply of healthy food and shelter, no matter their position in society? That alone would be very fruitful. While we are on the radical dream wagon lets also imagine that we give you a whole new option for work. One has the option not to work at a conventional job, but, one must then participate in a treatment program which guides them away from physical and mental entropy. When a human becomes freed from entropy they will simply 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 to work again, and what they will do will be of far greater benefit to themselves and others than could have been possible stuck working at a donut shop. This will surely sound disturbing to the elite class. We are all in a fishbowl that’s hard to see out of, one way or another. If anything could unite us it would be seeing that beneath all of our apparent differences, we share one common enemy; entropy. We are all fighting it every moment of everyday. It’s been the name of the game of life since the beginning. When we do not know the true nature of “the game”, we are ill equipped to win it. We create a bajillion rules of our own continuously trying to make it work and we become lost in our “personal” struggles.
NOTE: I reference Canada as a country to begin a radical shift in social structure simply because it seems to already have some of the necessary characteristics to start with. For example: Population density vs resources etc. The choice has nothing to do with politics or favoritism. We could start with Iceland just as easily just as Iceland has been a leader in the pioneering of alternative energy technologies because of the characteristics they happened to have to make them favorable to begin a radical shift.
Staying 𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦, being 𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦, (enlightenment being at the beginning of a new spectrum of potential…) is far too complex to be left as the sole responsibility of individuals. We have to work together and take risks to build a society where we can begin to surf the wave of entropy, instead of constantly being dragged down by the undertow. This is how we realize the seemingly paradoxical nature of “no self” on a practical level. We will always have a self. That is not the problem. The problem is not utilizing the vast power contained in the realization that if every human on the planet was aligned in keeping every other human alive and healthy, how much greater ones individual success could be. Can we comprehend the butterfly effect of 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵? “That’s a nice dream, but we don’t have the resources.” I can hear you say… We 𝘥𝘰 have the resources. They are just all locked up in various places, barely being used, like a vast gold deposit right under our feet. What we need is the right argument for freeing up those resources to be used for the greater good of humanity, which includes the elite. Intelligence includes, cleverness divides. So, there are vast resources locked up amongst the elite. They will need some convincing. It may appear that I am targeting a group by referring to the elite but the concept of what that is is such an abstraction, it is less about the human beings “belonging” to it but more about the dreadful imbalance it points to. But there are also all of the slaves we have working for us already, 24/7 in the disadvantaged countries. So for them, we create an argument worthy of Django’s Dr. King Schultz.
“On one hand, we despise slavery. On the other hand, we need your help, and if you’re not in a position to refuse, all the better. So for the time being, we’re going to make this slavery malarkey work to our benefit. Still… . having said that, we feel guilty. So… we’d like to enter into an 𝘢𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵. We are going to attempt a radical shift in our social system. This shift will require a sudden surge in the resources we require so that we may begin healing ourselves to a new, more highly efficient energy state. It may seem like an impossible endeavor, but we must think of it in terms of a quantum leap in human evolution. The cold hard scientific truth we must face is that, in large part, humans are only as good as the world/environment allows them to be. So we must strive to begin engineering an environment were some of us may begin to flourish (Canada) so that we may gain the extra energy required to then pass this gift to you. A temporary drain on resources to allow us to begin unlocking our full potential as a species will ultimately begin to bare such vast abundance that the memory of fearing letting go of the old order of things will make humans laugh every time they think of it for the rest of eternity.”
