Why is Real Thought so Rare?

Enlightenment


Around two and a half thousand years ago something strange happened.  All over the world people began thinking.

Carl Sagan noticed that, all at once -

-  the Ionians in the Aegean started measuring, calculating and theorizing correctly;

-  the Egyptian pharaoh Necho caused Africa to be circumnavigated;

-  Zoroaster, in Persia, founded his school of science, morality and philosophy;

-  Confucius and Lao-tsu taught in China;

-  Jewish prophets spoke from Egypt to Babylon in mid-East;

-  and Gautama Buddha reappraised reality in India.

Sagan mused - "It is hard to think these activities altogether unrelated" (p. 206 - `Cosmos')


Enforced Ignorance


But soon, within a generation or so, the establishment's `thought-police' cracked down - power-pervs like Socrates (as Pythagoras already had) were demanding that the early scientists' and thinkers' books should be burnt, calling them `heretical'.

Coincidentally, more organized book-burning subsequently happened in China. ref-1

So, as a result of succeeding ignorant and intolerant `elites', half the world-mind was dulled for over a thousand years of greed and slaughter by rulers or would-be rulers.

[`Half the world' because the Persian / Arabic empires preserved and translated Greek records, and their very able scientists ref-2  pursued further research, while China retained ref-2a  most of its high technology, only hampered by occasional small-minded rulers.]



Re-Enlightenment


Then a brief re-awakening - Copernicus, Galileo and then Leibniz tried to approach the reality of the physical universe - and Leibniz almost grasped the fact that all `things' in the Universe are inter-linked and inter-dependent!


Enforced Ignorance


Again there was a near-immediate slam-down:  the elite suddenly adopted Newton's theory of "absolute time and absolute space" - probably because the idea of a `clockwork universe' was wanted by those who were stealing and murdering and hoping to get away with it.

But Newton was wrong!  About as wrong as anyone can be. ref-3

However, authority refused to allow anything else be taught, for many generations.



Re-Enlightenment


Zoom forward. There was another brief awakening in the mid nineteenth century (1800's) when Buckle and Wallace, followed by Lang and Fort, ref-4  began impartially examining the data - and didn't care who they might be offending.


Enforced Ignorance


The slam-down was again fast (indeed, pre-emptive for Lang and Fort), all four were oppressed in various ways by establishments - as all who're suspected of endangering vested interests are oppressed.

Instead, Darwin's `mechanical' (and wrong) theory was chosen as the way to keep people blindfolded and hoodwinked. ref-5





Where are we now?

The power-pervs want us to believe that `mechanical Darwinism' - crude so-called survival of the fittest - confines and restricts our future.

It doesn't!  Even Darwin realized that, before his end. ref-6

And the establishment wants us deluded about - and blind to - the universe.  They pretend that the `Relativity' of Einstein ref-7 - still an absolutist and atomist p.o.v. - is physical reality.

It's not!  Even Einstein realized that - before his own personal finish. ref-8





We ask - is the enforced ignorance demanded by corrupt and pervert elites dooming us to yet another crash of civilizations?  ref-9

Are we all going suffer - because greedy thugs ref-10 have political power, and ignorant `thought-police' can limit free knowledge of science and restrict educational policies around the World?  ref-11



New Enlightenment?


Has all this happened before?  ref-12

There are series of cataclysms, extending back in time, shown by different records -

- ice-cores from the Arctic and Antarctic;
- tree-rings' `trauma' indicating extremely low growth years;
- and ordinary archeology, showing gruesome events in civilization's far past.

All three reviewed here - ref-13
