The Gradual Deconstruction of Unique Little Snowflakes...

Can one “thought” be more important than another “thought” if all such impulses originate in the same place (brain) and are composed of the same electrochemical ‘stuff’? Is a thought impulse to meditate any more significant or profound than the thought impulse to pick a bugger from your nose? Both result in an action, however, you’re programmed to feel a tad bit guilty about digging around in your face. Is guilt nothing more than hating the thought impulses that arise in your head in the belief you have a choice in what impulses your brain provides and when?

Every experience you have ever had, you had in the brain.

No matter where you were, you were only ‘there’ in your brain and every place you ever visited was experienced by you because of that 3lb lump between your ears. All the woohoo, whizbangs you got from years of vigilant spiritual practices, were provided to you exclusively in the fissured fat housed firmly in your cranium.

The very “self’ you identify with, is a direct result of billions of microscopic neurons all linked up with one another generating different impulses from different experiences and storing that information for future use and “you” will rely on this information throughout your entire life, much of it without conscious intent because you had no choice in the formation of your brain circuitry and, hence, no choice in what it provides.

You experience yourself in a brain and even bodily sensations and impulses are brain processed. Every emotion is generated in your brain through unique circuitry linked up in your head, processing responses in nano-seconds in ways that only you could experience and no one else.

Seems you really are a unique little snowflake after all!

Unfortunately, “you” exist as nothing more than a brain and have no personal responsibility beyond the impulses that brain provides. You are free of all guilt, shame and remorse for all the nasty sheit you did wrong your entire life simply because you have never had personal responsibility for the thoughts that arise in your head. Everything you did had to have been done exactly as “you” did it and it couldn’t have been done otherwise.

So why suffer?

Did you decide to have that thought before you had it or did it just simply happen? Do you choose a thought before you think it or has every thought been influenced by other thoughts themselves influenced by external events resulting in programmed responses?

Have you ever had a thought that was not directly influenced by external events, including bodily impulses? Have you ever had a thought that you could proclaim was the result of your being a unique little snowflake and was not influenced by external events and programmed responses?

The raw brute reality of the naturally occurring causal order is a fact that we are not particularly fond of and we employ fictional realities to escape that fact, requiring each programmed fiction be linked up to a myriad of other circuits, all influencing one another.

You have attached to numerous fictional realities to aid in getting out of your head. Most intentions to control thought are motivated to relieve you of thought impulses you do not wish to think and you don’t like the fact that we have no control over our thinking. It’s not that you don’t like your life, it’s that you don’t like the ‘thought’ impulses bouncing around in head cheese that inform you that your life sucks. You then look to fictions to redirect electrochemical impulses. Such fictions can be found in religio-spiritual ideologies which often seek to emphasize egocentric consciousness as something special and unique and outside the predetermined causal order. Or we just turn our brain over to the TV, which then externally influences the direction of neuro-circuit impulses and this is why egocentrics require entertainment to escape their own non-volitional brain impulses.

Yet, no matter how you seek to escape your mind, practice your thought control techniques, meditate for hours, pretend to “be in the now,” study scripture, chant your mantra, do the rosary, achieve “no mind,” etc, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah, you can’t escape the raw brute reality of living in an indifferent causal order along with other egocentrics who seem to always find a way to fook up your kumbaya plans for enlightenment, generating brain impulses you do not want to ‘think,’ but can’t avoid and, hence, grit and grind over.

But am I not in control of these words I write? I learned these words and, hence, they were provided to me, each one generated and contained by its own neuro-circuit in the language centers of the brain. Your brain-centered, electrochemical ‘thought’ impulses were given to you and there are only so many ways words/concepts can be strung together to generate ‘meaning.’ But what lifelong series of events brought me to this point in which my brain is utilizing neuro-circuits to string together these words in just this way? Am I really in control of impulses that motivate other impulses that generate these sentences?

However, many claim that this mechanistic engagement with the predetermined causal order (God?) is just another story. Yet, is the fact that the sun rises and sets simply another story? Possibly, if we stretch the imagination far enough we can come up with all kinds of other hocus pocus conclusions to explain that fact (and there are many such stories out there). However, we cannot deny it is a fact that you use to conduct your entire life, every day of your life. Days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, etc, are all fictional boundaries not found in nature, but based on a rising and setting sun and necessary for egocentric existence in a fictional social paradigm.

So when science completely deconstructs and reduces the ‘self’ to a simple, mechanistic brain process, what stories will be told and how will we live out our lives knowing this as a fact similar to the rising and setting of the sun?

Will you hate science for taking "you" away from your "self"? Will “you” still struggle mightily to consider your ‘self’ a special little snowflake, demanding everyone else see you as such, else you will 'feel' bad? When it is discovered that the ‘self’ is merely a location in a cranium, and has nothing to do with agency, because no free-will exists amongst billions of neurons transmitting impulses based on influences beyond the brain’s control (as it has been programmed to do) along trillions of dendrite wires, how will you conduct your life?

Will it make a difference knowing you have no free-will in what you think and do and that you are nothing but a puppet directed by a predetermined causal order that preceded your existence, but granted that existence nevertheless?

Will you be “happier” knowing there’s really nobody up there and that it makes no difference what you “think”? Will you finally experience the freedom that not having a ‘self’ to contend with provides? Will what you ‘do,’ no longer take on grave significance upon recognition that there is no ‘doer’ of anything ever done? And if no ‘doer’ ever did anything, will you experience an incredible relief for all the “bad” things you did that still require you experience guilt and remorse? Will the hatred for those who have ‘done’ wrong to you simply dissolve into thin air because there is no longer anyone to blame? How much attention will “you” require when there is no “you.”

What will the world be like when no one considers themselves special little snowflakes?

The Mass of Men Lead Lives of 'Fictional' Desperation...

Egocentrica mammalians have no choice but to “believe” things and this appears to aid them in having a meaningful existence. Their brains are packed full of circuitry based on fabricated beliefs, that seem to obstruct facts (death) and they tend to vomit their fictional beliefs all over everything, making a real mess of the place (precisely what I'm doing now).

The paradox is that egocentrica mammalia’s fictional existence is a part of the causal predetermined order. This order allows egocentric “thinking” to devise more complicated theories and ideologies for which to extract itself from that very order that spawned him and allowed him the neuronal based capacities to seek such an exit from his suffering, which he continues to do currently to this day. 

No other part of the predetermined causal order is so endowed and preordained to live within made-up fictional realities that attempt to remove the egocentric 'self' from the natural world. 

Clearly, it appears that egocentrica mammalia simply suffers from too many neurons. If he had a few billion less neurons, then he might be able to see the patterns of the predetermined causal order and realize his purpose in that order.

Nevertheless, even the belief of being separate from the natural order is part of the natural order and this highlights the complete lack of free-will that egocentrica mammalians actually have with regard to their thoughts and actions, which they believe are of their own agency and choice. 

Egocentrica mammalia must remain part of a predetermined causality, but is innately and instinctively endowed with the delusion that he can extract himself and be free of that order. Hence, he magically fabricates fictional exit ways that only multiply the ways he can suffer. He does this simply because he has no choice, since it all is predetermined and started long before his existence was even "known" by him.

Egocentrica Mammalian’s revel in their fictions and they believe they have conjured it all up by themselves. This causes him to believe that he is not part of the predetermined causal order and, hence, that he actually has the power to moderate his destructive tendencies through his own thoughts and actions. However, if the predetermined causal order did not require his destructive capacities, then he would be absent them.

Why would a “thought” arising in your brain, formulated from neuro-circuitry, be different from any other electro-chemical impulse occurring in the brain? Is the impulse that informs you of hunger any different from the one that tells you to want pizza instead of a burger? Is the “thought” impulse to say a prayer before bed more sacred than the impulse informing you to have a bowel movement upon waking?

Are not all brain impulses made of the same electrochemical soup? How is it one thought can be more significant than another when all are made up of the same synaptic, electrochemical transmissions, firing off in the same 3lbs of fatty tissue?

Nevertheless, egocentrica proudly refers to the ordinary electro-chemical impulses of the brain as “thought” and he believes these impulses are all contained in a “mind.” He speaks about all these ordinary neuro-circuit impulses with great reverence and pride, but also suffers through impulses he does not like, but can’t seem to terminate no matter how hard he meditates to achieve "enlightenment" or prays to God for "deliverance." He fictionalizes particularly meaningful thought-impulses as “wisdom” and villifies bad thought-impulses as “evil,” even though no such designations exist anywhere else in the natural world. He works diligently to protect his fictions and will often kill other egocentrics and destroy his own habitat to preserve his fictional "beliefs."

More significantly, egocentrica mammalian's are know for a thorough indoctrination of their youth into the prevailing fictions through “education” and this is based on the specific social order from which they exist and that ultimately defines what brain-based, electrochemical impulses (thoughts) are valuable and which should be avoided. Through education, egocentrics are taught the fictions for which they are expected to base the conduct of their entire existence, living as if these fictions were, in fact, true and basically doing what they have been taught to do. Unfortunately, each and every passing year, their fictions become intricately more complex and inexplicable, but this will aid them in weaving thousands of fictions into “stories” and from these stories they will continue to destroy themselves and exploit the natural world that spawned them. 

They will learn that to believe in the fiction of “money” they must engage in other fictional activities called “work” and the type of work they choose will determine how much money they have to spend on objects that help support other fabricated fictions, i.e, career, wealth, status, prestige, pride, love, happiness, etc, etc. Those egocentrics who refuse to engage in this fictional based activity, will obviously suffer the consequences.
However, many of them have devised ingeniously incredible fictions involving “gods” and “satans” and many of these fictions have been passed down through countless generations. The causal order has only predetermined egocentrica mammalia to persist in fabricating fictions and nowhere else in the causal order does this occur. Hence, egocentrica mammalians only do what they must.

Some will even break from the mainstream fictions and construct alternative fictions that employ conceptualizations, such as “enlightenment” or “awakening,” and many will become masters of these fictions and spend their lives teaching others how to revere and worship these fictions. They will dress in robes and shave their heads as symbolic of their fictional mastery and to generate reverence for the electro-chemical impulses, or “thoughts,” that these fictions require they “think.” They will string together, through the language centers of their grey matter, complex concepts and declare these concepts as “truth,” but will diligently fail to notice that the causal order of the universe pays them no heed whatsoever and goes on doing what it has always done since the predetermined causal order created the biosphere allowing egocentrica mammalia to live.

Hence, egocentrics have no free-will to terminate their fiction constructing capacities, because they have been so ordained by the predetermined causal order to construct fictional realities through which to suffer, and seek relief from suffering, as they have done for centuries with no end in sight.

So if you knew that every thought in your head was a product of a predetermined causal order, an order that had shaped and molded the entire universe, and continues on shaping and molding…what would you think? What fictions would you ‘choose’ to live by to shape and mold your existence, if you knew with absolute certainty that every thought that you experienced was entirely outside your ability to control, because every thought since birth was predetermined? If “thoughts” are nothing more than electrochemical impulses firing off in the brain, would it matter what you “thought” and if it didn’t matter what you thought, would “doing” anything matter at all?

Egocentrics Hate to Suffer...

Since the Big Bang, causally determined actions have unfolded along evolutionary lines completely absent any action egocentrics could apply to alter or reverse this direction simply because egocentrics did not exist, but were to become ineradicably linked to that natural predetermined causal pattern. 

Nevertheless, the moment egocentrica mammalia got the bright idea that he had a 'self' floating around somewhere between his ears, he immediately fabricated a belief system to match that delusion and then attempted to remove himself from the unfolding actions of the natural order. 

However, for centuries he did attempt to live in accord with the patterns of the causal order by cooperating with it. Yet, by believing he could CHANGE the direction the causally determined universe has been following, long before fat-brained, belief-vomiting egocentrics were allowed the opportunity to manifest as living organisms, egocentrica mammalia sought to remove himself completely from that order by fabricating fictional realities that he proclaimed more significant than the causally determined universe that spawned him. 

If egocentrica mammalian's ridiculously stupid beliefs were NOT supposed to exist and cause chaos and destruction, the determined causal order would have seen fit to extract them from it's natural order of things. Yet, the fact that egocentric beliefs exist, demonstrate quite conclusively, that they are a part of the natural order.  In other words, you're supposed to believe that patently fictional bullsheit that you now believe.

By making fiction more real than fact, egocentrica mammalia embarked on his own eventual destruction simply because even “he” is a fiction. Nevertheless, he has ordained his fictional self with universal importance above and beyond what the predetermined causal orde has in store for him. However, he does all this with the full and complete blessings of the predetermined causal reality that gave him existence, because he has no choice. He can believe he is outside that order (fictional bullsheit), but he cannot remove himself and he never has...

This belief that egocentric humans could somehow alter the direction that has been determined by a universe, that allowed them to exist in the first place, continues on to this day and all because egocentrics hate to fooking suffer. Suffering is a necessary criteria of the natural order and you should be blissfully happy to be a part of that. It is bona fide proof you exist.

The fact is clear. The universe desires egocentrica mammalians do exactly what they do or what they do would not be done. Ergo, the obvious conclusion is that egocentrics are preordained to fook up the planet and there is absolutely nothing they can do to reverse that direction. All because egocentrics hate their suffering, even though the natural causal order has ordained that they MUST suffer.

Egocentrica screams at the universe, “I refuse to suffer!” Obviously, the universe that allows for a predetermined causal order that created egocentrica mammalia, doesn't even hear his constant bleating. 

Egocentrica mammalia seeks to end suffering because he believes it should not be there, even though the natural causal order, that gave him life, so decreed it exist exactly as it does. Yet, once you recognize that suffering is an inherent and crucial part of existence, why seek to relieve it? Same as death, which is also an inherent and crucial part of natural existence. Why seek to prolong life? Why seek to heal the sick? Why complain about gassed children in Syria? Why seek to stop wars from occurring if it is universally preordained, else they would not occur at all?

The obvious answer is that egocentrica mammalia, as a species, is as much universally preordained to start wars as he is to seek an ending to war and this cannot be altered or tampered with to achieve any appreciable change in this dualistic equation. Centuries of war and peace have demonstrated this fact and all the spiritual religious hocus pocus in the world will not make a speck of difference in altering this fact ever.

I love how spiritualists throw around the concept “collective consciousness” as if in the collective consciousness were nothing but pink ponies and unicorns. Any consciousness collective would have to have as much blood and gore as it has rainbows and cuddly bunnies. 

But you cannot bust outa the programming and the programming has always informed that life is “sacred.” This perception has been cause of much suffering, simply because the predtermined causal order of the natural world holds nothing sacred.

There are essentially 2 types of suffering. Natural and man-made.

Natural suffering is based on nature’s complete indifference to our fabricated fictions about the sacredness of life and how one should conduct one's life in the “sacred” time one is allotted. Nature cares not a spit about your family, your education, your career, your bank account, your business, your possessions, your body, your status, your life, etc, etc, nature, very simply, doesn’t give a rats patoot about YOU. It can take you out in the most horrendous ways regardless of the "truths" you value, simply because its Truth trumps all others.

Nature is utterly and blatantly indifferent to our values, i.e., honor, respect, compassion, love, truth, spirituality, friendship, justice, equality, sacrifice, etc, etc, etc, ad nauseam. These, and millions more like them, are fabricated fictions and are the 2nd type of suffering. They simply do not exist anywhere in the natural world and to adopt them as the purpose and nature of your existence is to adopt suffering

As you might know, based on the "happiness scale," the happiest people reside in Calcutta, mostly in abject poverty and squalor. They need deal mostly with natural suffering and significantly fewer fabricated fictions as the U.S., who scored very low on the happiness scale and whose population takes the lead for most antidepressant medication use.

And now we are watching a great deal of our fictions began to dissolve into the nothingness from which they arose, with much hand wringing and gritting of teeth.

There will not be one great collapse, just the ebb and flow of marvelous waves of great suffering. The suffering must go on. Egocentric man exists to suffer. That is his purpose, no matter how hard he stamps his feet demanding it be gone and, it should now appear obvious, that after centuries of unabated suffering, his purpose is to suffer and die. What other purpose has the universe allotted him? And all his attempts to relieve his suffering through constructing ever more complicated fictions through which to conform, simply create additional suffering because nature simply does not care.

So carry on...suffer and seek relief, suffer and seek relief, suffer and seek relief, on and on, over and over, ad nauseam...and then die (look at this in your own existence).

Such is the actual purpose of egocentrica mammalia. Hence, the question asked is how does one exist in a predetermined causal order in which one’s purpose is to suffer and continuously seek relief from that suffering because one believes it should not exist?

Just that and nothing more…

(However, there are those who have adapted to the predetermined causal order and are free of the need to have it any other way. But you rarely meet those folks, because their anonymity is part of that realization).
