Beyond the appearances of the unending variety of content put together by thought, human beings consciousnesses are very similar. They are not individual as thought has divided and shown life to be. All of consciousness is one humanity. One person may have longer hair, raised in the east and be a little more shy and another may have a beard and been raised in the south with certain traditions. But those are apparent differences all defined and categorized by thought. Humans are all one humanity that as far as most are concerned has an existence and well-being produced and maintained solely by thought.
Human beings are similar in that they all suffer in thought. It doesn’t matter what country human beings live in, thought in it’s very nature sets up conflict and contradictions. The me compared to you and the us against the them are universal concepts that thought has designed for humans to live and die by. This creates anxieties, fears, insecurities, a need to seek pleasure and avoid pain as a way of humanity lived out through thought.
After all these millions of years of accumulating and detailing these experiences in consciousness through thought, what have human beings obtained? Humans live in the memories of their past and carry them into the future, all detailed and analyzed by thought that defines them.
After a million years thought has not moved humans to see a new sustainable improved way of well-being. Thought has never made it happen and trying to produce well-being through thought will continue to waste energy.
As there is great concern about the wastage of energy in society through over usage of electricity what about wastage of energy in thought trying to improve a man made “me” . This meticulously put together psychological “me” is a habit in memory. Thought built up as “me” has no independent existence except what thought tells it. It has no independent reality like nature. The “me” is an illusion. Thought doesn’t want it to end.
Humans can look around in the world and see that there is minimal psychological improvement taking place. Society is working through thought to improve an illusion of a “me”. It is a mirage. It is conflict and struggle. It is a wastage of energy and then human beings die never knowing the meaning of love and compassion.
There was yet another shooting today that involved United States Congressman that were shot while playing baseball. Yes, the “me “stored up psychologically as content in consciousness can be modified. Yet these modifications haven’t affected society in any significant way. How to be relieved of depression;how to raise a healthy kid;how to improve a marriage;how to stop killings. Human beings are all looking for similar answers in thought over time. Thought will not solve this.
Are there results that can be proven and duplicated or are humans living in a circular pattern that seems to be trending round and round. There is never a discovery that all of humanity has a messy consciousness as a “me” and that the circle of life as it is now, is that we suffer and die.
Human beings rarely know what it means to love.
