"Nobody knows jack sh*t about what is going on."
-Terence McKenna (in reference to the sum of knowledge of all the world's religion, philosophy, and science)
The human earth species is going to madly self-destruct if it does not find a perceived and shared purpose for even being alive here on the earth in the first place. I mean a purpose other than just indulging in distracting and entertaining pleasures before death comes or just trying to develop oneself 'spiritually' before death comes. And one of the themes of this article series has been that the human species does not have such a purpose. Lives that are nothing but drudging through jobs provided by oligarchic masters and blindly making babies who can carry on this ghastly routine when their parents die and all the while grandiosely fantasizing about 'spiritual development' or future political utopias is the certain path to self-destruction as an earth species. We have no shared conscious purpose for even being here. Even if we provide all humans with adequate food and shelter and 'equal rights' we are still confronted with the question of what our purpose here is. Sooner or later we will be forced to nakedly confront this question and answer it meaningfully or be undone by our lack of an answer.
Earth and material reality in general has a purpose other than just being the lowly handmaiden of Spirit or the prostitute for human desire and we will find that purpose or She will wipe us out. This civilization is anti-earth and without any growth compass. Ninety percent of what constitutes our civilization is completely unnecessary for evolutionary advancement and growth of consciousness. It exists merely as the manifestation of fear-based human-power fantasy. Our technological development has done nothing to deepen the consciousness or wisdom of humanity. In fact, it impedes such growth by confusing data growth with consciousness growth. Technology is not the same as, or a substitute for, consciousness growth. This civilization is a direct contradiction of our real purpose in being on earth and for that reason it will be destroyed one way or another. It can be by human will or against human will, but it will be deconstructed down to the foundation and replaced by something that serves our real purpose in being on earth. All this 'civilized' sound and fury adds up to nothing in the end but the power of the oligarchs.
