Awareness Of Standards

Original posting, September 2006

When did any of us become aware of accepted standards? We only judge retrospectively. Thinking how 'awful' society has become. Be careful not to become confused by the ever growing selfish outlook that is happening now. In the last decade. Or is that only my appreciation since I was not consciously aware of it longer ago? I didn't exist longer ago! The natural human desire to procreate goes back to the beginnings of human history, either as Man or ape or even further. At what age does the awareness to procreate awaken?

It is only society that has imposed standards, but who is society? Opinions are still being engineered today so when 'society' is blamed we should all look closer in the attempt to identify who or what 'society' actually is.

An individual or a (small) group of people who have the reason to control societal thinking? To control how we think? The modern ethic of slavery. The concept of financial reward has been in existence for a long time now. But value, worth and inflation paint a confusing picture that appears complex. It isn't really. That's just the illusion. The less 'we' get the more 'they' get. The cake has only a finite size. Simple. Work out for yourself who is 'we' and who is 'they'. It's a fascinating exercise.

The descent of evolution. Being dragged down into the pit. To resurface you must break free or you too will drown in the 'shit' that we will soon reach.

But in which direction is the shit: 'up' or 'down'?
