Agreements are vunerable to lies
I actually think that the solution to dampening the static of #propaganda lies which are dominating our #consciousness on the internet is for the hosting apps (facebook, twitter, etc) to disallow anomalous names … everybody has to go as their verifiable selves.
Sans what you call “the dead residue of external conversation”, the light would not shine into your being.
Perhaps you may need a different word like twitterverse. Strangely enough I just threw the line:
“A Tower of Babel never tops the sky; “ see About: A Tower of Babel Never Tops the Sky . to begin the cycle.
Hint: It is a full moon tonight!
One other nuance – while the metaphor I used of light – appeals to one sense I hold it as all of the 12 senses & beyond. In the dark last night while we lost power my senses & consciousness went to the sound channel.
I actually think that is what is happening here … it is an #amazement
is a beautiful mouthful indeed .
Perhaps in the darkness of the soul even the feelings disappear & conversely with consciousness the light makes present what we can bear to behold.
i still think ...
you are describing a qualia … a reaction of (and in) a being .
i am pointing to the action that caused that reaction.
Neither exist sans the other.
That said, consciousness is not vulnerable to anything outside the bearer of the consciousness. In humans who can’t focus a shifting soup of beliefs can be stirred up with anyone’s spoon. – M.R.
So the question is no longer about consciousness at all.
The question now is: does #propoganda corrupt #agreements ? It is actually hard for me to deny that it does.
“Agreements are vunerable to lies” was “Consciousness are vulnerable to lies”
hmmm … there must be some aspect in which Argrements are Consciousness.
But backing off of the grandiose thinking a bit here … #propoganda and shouting #fallacies and misrepresenting and not listening and obsession with personal privacy … makes it hard to think clearly and be awake to each other. I can see that when it happens in myself … and i can see where that happens in politics.
Think about it … when you wake up in the morning … do you wake up to yourself … or do you wake up to othersness.
I think you live in a world where the stuff we deal with here is just so, regardless of whether we agree on it or not. Well shucks, a great deal of the world is reliably so irrespective of our agreements … for example, it is still dark here, but it is so that the sun will rise soon whether we agree that it will or not.
But on the other hand there are zillions of stories that are not like that … these other stories are just as so as the sun rising shortly, however they are only so if we agree that they are so … for example i want to get a select collection of #GW’s letters from you …. that story will only happen if you and i agree to make the transaction. Awareness and feeling to action according to this latter kind of agreements is a way to become awake to each other. What militates against that awakeness, and in many cases destroys it, are some of the kinds of things that i mention above.
