Devaluing of Human Ingeniuty ~ Insults to the Social Imagination!

 the mind is a terrible thing to waste...

Years ago, many people were schooled by their surroundings and or by their 'tribe/local community'. Years ago, children were home schooled and some went on to do quite well even without college. And, years ago, the idea of education and or the idea of going to 'school' was considered a means to discipline the mind and body so that loftier thoughts were pursued in spite of fleshly desires. It was a kind of discipline that doesn't not exist today. Rather education today is to equalize and control the masses ... it is not about accepting the best of them and making them into disciplined godly thinkers.

Years ago, many children were given a Bible to read and encouraged to study the Bible. Some were taught to read by parents, grandparents or school teachers. And, sometimes, they were self taught driven by an inner mechanism to learn about the world around them. The human mind is an amazing instrument, a kind of Ai that either has good hard wiring or not so good as this is a fallen world. But, it is likely just different hard wiring through exchange of information in the place it is received and implemented. And, that is by design!

So the, what does that mean for in terms of being a 'genius' and given that can every child or human mind be a genius? What is genius? It is only that which is socially agreed upon as incredible and or out of the ordinary information having been generated, received and implemented in a place with success that benefits not only the one but the many. We know that the human mind in its social imagination exists in relation to other like minds and in its surroundings which means that the information exchanged in a place is received and shared intimately to ensure positive reception and implementation thereof for the good of the group in the place where they are.

There is a radical destructive devaluing of this which we have called - human ingenuity. It is by those that seek control over humanity. It is instigated by those who seek control over others and it is executed from the top down. It is not information for/by the people in the place they are.  It is other information brought in by those who seek to control - information that is generated, sent and received as if it is true for people in the place where they are. But, it is from places other than the place a person finds him or herself in. This means that information is coming from outside and is being imposed upon in order to control people in the place where they are.

What does this devaluing look like? It looks like ungodly experts, institutions, organizations, huge corporations and politics.  These entities are largely composed by the group we can call - elites. They do not trust others and nor do they want to as in doing so they could lose their positions of power and or prestige. So, they either impose information which they control as in condemn, demonize, reject or punish or ban other kinds of information. Thus, they devalue the human being in the place where he/she is and also devalue human ingenuity. They get people on board with their agenda in order to control them telling people that they have the wrong information and or they need to have better information - their information.

They being elites, control means to success and they want control of people's access to success, their success. They label all the so called 'wrong' information and provide people with 'new' information. They use fear tactics and sympathy also to lure people from trusting their own instincts so to speak and lamb onto theirs. They make it seems like most people are idiots, ignorant masses that need experts and laws to protect them, guided controlled education to make them equal to everyone else and they make it all sound too good to be true... cause it is.

People can and do know what is best for them in the place where they are and even if they suffer a bit or take risks, it is theirs to overcome and theirs to gain from. For sure, they are no worse for the wear of it, struggle for a better life that they create for themselves in the place where they are. You can say that they don't have resources, they don't this or that. Not everyone has everything in the place where they are but if they have the right to access human ingenuity, they will come up with incredible means to make a better place where they are rather than wait to be told or have what is theirs taken from them - the human mind in it social imagination!

Hope you're not one of those people that 'poo-poo' other people's ideas for life/living because you think your ideas and your university's / company's ideas and or ways are better for people in the place where they are...Or, you feel sorry for people as it seems they don't have any idea at all. That's not true! Take a look at these ideas... like most, they arose from ordinary people's ability to make simple observations and improve their life in the place where they are. They did not need an 'elite' or one of their experts, institutions or their corporations ...
