the turn is always ours

Does maya (our dreaming) exist as a 4D screen in the
brain which is able to produce or note the environment via its senses and can respond and calculate? Yet
reality is
always just
around the corner?
What does a corner look like?
How do we see corners? From the inside or outside?

Is maya where we see and hear and feel and smell and taste while the good and bad happen but does not cause the good and bad times but is a witness, a record?

Does the dreaming brain make good and bad possible? So how do we find reality? Is the only way to become it?

Maya is virtual reality, so is maya enough? For most?

Reality just doesn’t care if
it’s discovered or not.
So the turn is
always
ours.
We are
always at bat.

Am I
the one who
makes comments
to and about the maya? Or
am I maya through and through? Or am I both?
An identity and commentator created
by nature and fitting
perfectly
into
the
dream
world where
things  are only partially here and partially true.

Where would we be without dreaming?
Would we be beings of about
five million years
ago?

Aren’t
many of the best
solutions usually simple?

The Scandinavian countries use the power
of capitalism to generate wealth
and then use the wealth
to make sure

everyone in
their country is
taken care of. Making
sure everyone is cared for is
called socialism. So, it seems the
remedy is not capitalism or socialism…

but their combination is.

The solution yielding the quickest
and the best changes for
the betterment of
everyone
could
turn out to be…
taking the money out of politics.

Everyone is being cared for
and getting as much
education
as can
be
held, and
opportunity is still
present because capitalism is still present.

The only difference is the rich are still rich but not filthy rich. Everyone has a shot at having it all, health and happiness and the vicissitudes which go with them.

Idealistic but doable. We have the model so why not be wise and follow it. It’s proven to work. Maybe the greatest part of our history is yet to be written.

comfort and hope

What are the classical religions? Are they very old and compelling traditions based on beliefs and promises passed on by the living to the next generation? Memes.

What is religion’s purpose? Is it to capture (save) large numbers of humans by giving them comfort and hope based on the promise of having a wonderful and never ending existence after death? Who can’t see the opportunity in that?

Organized religion is one of the greatest tools for herding humans. Nothing is wrong with this unless the power is abused by leaders. History is full of horrific examples of organized religion being used to abuse human beings.

Religion is the territory of belief and faith which makes for an interesting game of comfort and hope. But…

The odds are very high there is no afterlife, and if true, evildoers will not get their promised eternity of suffering, and the odds are exactly the same for believers to not receive their eternal rewards.

Is living not being able to know for sure what’s going to happen in the future the best way to live? Is it because the odds of an omnipotent, warlike, and vengeful god calling all the shots are so small, the god might as well be nonexistent.

Did the idea of a god existing come about to explain good and bad events as many have suggested and then did leaders pounce on the power of belief?
