A social structure is characterized by a group of individuals; this group as a community becomes responsible for their coexistence as a whole, having as a common purpose the survival of their race. The significance of a society depends on cooperation; if the group scatters it ceases to be an established social entity. And so, moral and ethical principle arises to bring order amongst the human species. Morality has been represented by religion and law; the divine specifies the necessity of a benevolent heart in an individual’s interpretations, and through this along with common sense, laws and rules came to set a system with the goal of a congruent civilization. Such laws and principles gave restrictions, which of course were distinguished as wrong and incorrect.
Through time the human race had struggled and endured beyond several intents of a truly justified and fair organization, but continued to fail due to difference in perception and opinion. As individuals, we possess a unique perspective that we shaped as a process of the study in behavior; we judge our surroundings, our actions and reactions and then we create an immutable thought that allows us to analyze and constitute life as we see fit.
In a way, humanity had succeeded on developing a system by the end of the 20th century, that allowed us to coincidently live with each other, yet it was to a certain degree, which was unfortunately shortly limited. The quality that we lacked most is that of empathy, meaning we were incredibly selfish creatures that searched only for personal gain and self benefit; and as long as our survival is threatened by others that quality will continue to fade. This fact has fathered the other sides of such “justice system” that we know as corruption, rebellion and ignorance.
Even if we did manage to manipulate ourselves to a level in which we become one single entity that coexists in complete harmony, we still lack that purpose most choose to ignore; this purpose is the acquisition of ultimate truth. Perhaps if we all functioned as one entire cooperative society, that purpose would be simplified and we might even reach that meaning and reason behind it. Several options have been considered including genocide, to solute the grand issue, but as long as we are human history would simply repeat itself. The idea of this “Utopia” is then a weak ambition to recreate our human nature, and will always end in a cycle of repetitive contradiction.
By now you must have inferred I am human, and that I know things you do not. Which begs the question; what do we know?
Intelligence is defined as “the capacity of learning, reasoning, understanding and similar forms of mental activity. An aptitude in grasping truths, relationships, facts, meanings etc.” For such to be an accurate definition we must first elaborate these truths, relationships facts and meanings, as to what they are; and what do we truly even know? There are two main factors that manifest an individual’s levels of intelligence; capacity and motivation. It is also important to realize intelligence is not directly vinculated to social and moral principle.
The educational basis relies on a continuing implementation of theoretical activity, meaning, they disregard the practice of individuality in our critical thinking. I indomitably believe the greatest of minds, gifted with true intellect, are repressed and not allowed to bring forth their full holding ability. All thanks to the self-indulgent societies of mindless performances (shallow, insipid and empty).
It is this why I consider philosophy as the nearest solution on obtaining truths and pure knowledge, the rest are attempts that become habit in human condition; and it is these of what philosophy feeds off to nurture and maintain its purpose. I categorize all of which is considered to be knowledge as, conceptual knowledge. Conceptual knowledge is quite simply what we as part of mankind, believe to be true; interpretations by sensory perception. This does not accredit divine or spiritual entities; in fact they also form part of this ignorance. It is instead to resemble the reality that we truly know nothing. With all so infinite possibilities come all so infinite probabilities, relying on solely one is plain ridiculous.
Hence my commencing critique towards the formulated system of education, they all lack the incentives necessary to develop the capacity of the individual. My purpose here is to bring consciousness to this pathetic dependency. So those great and true intellectuals can rise to sire a difference, a change; and explore these repetitive inquiries of life, death and its controversial ambiguity. What greater inquiry then, than that which we refer to as what exists.
An “Inquiry to what exists” is one of various explanations of metaphysics; its business is to subject common opinion and provide critical scrutiny, to then determine what is truly real. Determining what is truly real is an issue of sense and perception. Such analysis in life could only be evaluated by perceptive interpretations, but we cannot know they are completely reliable. We cannot proceed if questioning the possibility of attaining truth and omniscience is determined by a series of limited capabilities.
Our mind creates individual entities and provides levels of understanding and thinking, it forms ideas, and it judges to ultimately manipulate our actions. It is influenced by emotion and adaptation but it can be disciplined and controlled.
We possess the abiding power of will, that allows the mind to grow according to its purpose; and only then can one truly understand the possibilities of knowledge in its depth to innovate a life of intellectual decay that is contingent to a conceptual world with its ignorant inhabitants. However Impulses are of another matter, a matter we cannot control.
Emotion has an overwhelming effect on our thoughts, it even manages to subjugate our reason; and the greatest poison of all is that called love. How then can we hale and administer our minds into a course that aids humanity, without being manipulated by weakness of effete promises with useless directions. The mind is not as accessible as one may think which is why determination is what guides us to completion.
To overpower the debilitating aspect of our mortality we need a purpose, one that stands above all; mine is truth. To fulfill this purpose I posses four catalysts that help as a diversion to the irrepressible triggers of sentiment. The first of such is inspiration; an influence exerted upon the mind or soul that reassembles our being from integrity and action. It is what designed my perspective from the beginning, the conductor of a developing ambition.
Ambition, the second catalyst, is the earnest desire of achievement or distinction and the willingness to strive for its attainment. What ambition then does is add up for our fixation in that unique and perfect purpose. It is then that we are obliged to fulfillment and it becomes an obsession; the third catalyst. Obsession must not be misinterpreted or misused; it must be seen as the advantage that provides us with an amount of ignorance towards these impuissant feelings of our being, and give us realization of the true reason we are fighting for.
Emotion in its sense can be powerful, strong, but only to those who can control it. Here falls the final catalyst that serves as a twisted catharsis that aims my purpose and maintains it constant and unsusceptible to the weak. The last of the four, and the one that spawns our ultimate outcome, it is innovation. Something new or different introduced, that replaces the initial perspective of incoherent expectations that did not relate to what we should assay in them. This is what can subjugate emotion and utilize it into our advantage, a new endured and resilient mind of perception influenced only by it.
Chaos and confusion... A war like no other breeds a new world, the “war to amity”, ironic yet true. Good and evil were no longer distinguished; they all had justifications in the process of a mindless self-genocide. Each nation joined this savage rampage over power, battling themselves with no mercy or pity. Alliances were made but with no true loyalty as they all had their own selfish purposes. Dust clouds blinded civilization, made up of the ashes of the weak and the blood of the persistent. The world was once a whole, slowly we deteriorated to pieces and finally it was left in three.
Much of the 21st century brought innovating thinking, technological advancements and human augmentations. Weapons were as massive as the world itself and its use became far too dangerous to be practiced on terraqueous regions. By the year of 2043, Russia, Europe and Asia were given the name of “The Transcending Triangle”, also known as, “Triple T” and most commonly written or symbolised as, T; Occasionally they were also referred to as, ‘the good, the bad and the terrible”, Reason being that the capacities of these three great nations merged together, proved to master human conditioning and hence labelled adequate for world domination. Despite these sustainable facts of future possibilities, Europe did not concurred with the idea of the T alliance.
The U.S.A (United States of America) though known to withhold great power had fallen ignorant to the long term consequences due to their vagaries of perception; they were dazed by their own arrogance and so their great resources, their wealth, and their influence in media were all proven useless against the amplifying nations of T. Progress is set to define an outcome and should not carry its importance during the actual process, instead it is the aftermath that truly makes it significant. Luckily the disagreement of Europe towards the viral ideologies of both Russia and Asia caused them and the U.S to unite against such a coalesced threat of potent domains.
Throughout these series of allegiances and rivalries, the world ended inexorably breached by the two growing simultaneous powers; on one side: North, Central and South America, Canada, Europe and Australia (including Greenland and New Zealand); on the other: Russia, Asia, and Africa. The importance of such war surpassed that of any previous ones, it even surpassed any historical event one can consider crucial; this war would change mankind forever. It ended on the year 2,084 and nearly exterminated the human race along with various other species, by the year 2,150 earth was reborn.
The result of the war generated the remaining existence of solely three concrete divisions of land, which through a series of transactions and so called diplomatic negotiations, the remaining world leaders settled with the intent of a utopia; one nation given the name, I.N.U ( Industrial new utopia ). The greatest and strongest of the three pieces of land was chosen to construct I.N.U and sequentially a new way of life; the other two proceeded with the following: One was structured to become an isolated territory were those persons who opposed or worked against the strict laws and policies of I.N.U were exiled. The other was constructed to be an aid in human condition, a pure preservation area of resource that delivers to the land of I.N.U. Like so, humans were now promoted to an age of technological innovation and complete industrialization.
I.N.U was then accordingly established as the first true utopia, this ideal community with a system of political and social perfection; how so? There are no politics and no economy, no trade, no currency, no money. Utilities are given to all citizens depending on levels of need, products no longer serve as entertainment as it is now considered useless, and instead it serves strictly to need rather than want. Judgement is not made by humans; it is made by machines which also caused weapons and human labor to become obsolete. Machines are programmed to function and serve human needs, they operate as A.I (Artificial Intelligence); however these synthetic beings were given restrictions to avoid revolutions and rebellions. The system is austere, its laws are oppressive and those who fail to comply are exiled to the confined land of The Nihilist Star.
The Nihilist Star, also called the home of the mavericks or freelancers, is composed of people who rely solely on themselves and were exiled from I.N.U; it is marked as an individualistic territory still exposed to crime and violence, based upon anarchy and hence categorized as disorganised and dangerous. It is said The Nihilist Star serves as a modern time prison masked as a free society, where those weaker, selfish and unstable minds take refuge. The Nihilist Star is controlled by INU itself so that the people residing on this place may not present themselves as a possible threat to the harmonic environment they strive to maintain. Be that as it may, I.N.U’s control is limited; the machines operating on The Nihilist Star are commanded by The Nihilist Star and the relationship between them and I.N.U revolves around survival.
Of course to maintain functionality within I.N.U and The Nihilist Star, resource must be properly moderated. Avelon, known as “father fountain”, is responsible for conserving equanimity and balance amongst the human living and dead. With a flawless biodiversity, and a proper variation of all animal species along with their corresponding ecologies, Avelon is the closest artificial assimilation to the Garden of Eden. Resource is suitably grown and nurtured so that it can serve to the lands of I.N.U and The Nihilist Star. As so, the long consecutive constructs of social endeavours in creating a perfectly harmonious society reside on these three new structures.
The wicked man serves his own deception as the saint favors not God, but himself. We are slaves, we function with purpose. Everything is as significant as nothing, once such purpose is meaningful and reasonable; of course reason then can fall out of context within the limitless boundaries of human imagination. What then can be called knowledge? If the extent of our understanding stops once we reach this illusive satisfaction, this ignorant sense of completion. Conceptually we are alive and sane, in raw reality though, we are as alive as we are dead and as sane as we are mad. The wicked man must serve God, the saint must explore deception and the result must be exchanged, twirled, twisted, entangled and repeated again; until the saint became deception, and the wicked became God, serving wicked men and saints alike. The thin line between "this and that" does not exist in a world of infinite probabilities and possibilities beyond the truth. Instead there are no lines, shapes nor orders; only a vast, if not infinite, world of the unknown.
...I intend to find God before he finds me...
Born in the land of paradox, of irony, an area reigned by its consequential collusion. Location has never been truly relevant to the perpetual essence in my soul. Location has only been territorial, conceptual just as the conditioned knowledge I was raised to recognize and maintain. My life has been basically routinary and dependent to what mankind believes to be stationarily correct; morals and ethics, social values and human concerns. It is a quirky fact how life entangles us to manage our lives accordingly, mimicking the foundations of our surrounding race, fake and yet necessary. We are entwined to the past and tethered to the present; we base it all in retrospect to construct the future. We gaze upon an imminent death, struggling to survive with no purpose, no meaning and no reason. I refused to settle amongst a limited existence, never should I surrender to the feeble perspectives that we so desperately rely on.
I was once innocent, as we all, until the day in which we are introduced to the immutable reality of our life; a moment in which the individual makes a decision, a personal choice. One either turns his innocence into ignorance, or sacrifices these shallow delights in order to inquire what truly exists. I searched for omniscience, the absolute of knowledge, and would always strive to acquire such a seemingly impossible feat. I shall transcend with pithy, endurance and resilience, transmitting the complete power of our will. This choice came to me at an early age, I was frightened and I did not understand its true value until several years passed. This day I observed attentively the structure and delicacy of my humanity. I stared forcibly and wondered I started to question my origins and the credibility of what I was told; this was my moment of doubt.
Fear was overwhelming, I could not handle the amount of possibilities that consistently contradicted themselves scattered in my mind. Who are we? Where are we? What are we? Why are we? … Those are nothing but small examples of what my thoughts manufactured that day. Most of all there was one question that I apperceived the most. Who am I? Unwilling to face the decision just yet, I calmed myself with a momentary answer that I knew to be false. I simply repeated my name over and over again… This seemed to develop a sense of identity back to my life, and being raised in the traditional sense, I prayed for salvation and a soothing guide for my questioning.
Later on it happened again, this time I was not frightened, I was intensively curious and enraged. I looked back at that day, and felt the ignorance, the dependency and the cowardice characteristic in my actions. My age is the only justifiable fact that allowed it not to be considered pathetic. Now, as a devoted agnostic, these possibilities came as relief of security in actual truth. If one is unwilling to explore all possibilities at their very extent, one will never be capable of understanding. Every concept or idea make up what we believe to know as life and the fundamentals of our existence. If we intend to analyze it and comprehend it until finding the ultimate truth, then all must be taken in consideration. No matter how absurd it may be resembled it is still to be cogitated.
These situations of grander are crucial for the development of my current intellectual perceptions and critical thinking; they formulate my humanity, bits and pieces of my mentality as a whole. Like this I transformed, I evolved into indifference. My sentiments and thoughts were my own, hidden and alone. What society saw was a facade of the real me, an act I have played only to secure a place in the community; fake yet necessary. I isolated myself not out of fear but out of self-discipline, my mind was at constant apprehension to all that came to nurture the seeds of its purpose; and that purpose is truth.
Later on came an occurrence in which I met the ultimate enemy, what could create and innovate as easily as it could kill and eliminate, the architect of change; time. Inevitably it will be responsible for our deaths. Again I called my fearful awaiting only to now acknowledge some hope in obtaining my one major ambition in truth.
Life went on and I with it. Continuously I dwelled through, intending to learn more of these infinite probabilities, taking every bit of experience I could to give further credence to my purpose. Time went by, and along came hope; hope in beauty, in perfection in true and pure magnificence, innocence and above all in reason, meaning and purpose; all I thought dead. It is not an exaggeration, it simply has no explanations as one would expect. I could feel it to be true, I knew for the first time without doubt and without controversy. It is love. All my reason and logic, all my inquiries were eradicated, they became insipid and insignificant compared to the sentiment that arose and ignited my heart that is now at her possession. This emotion allured my whole entity to obey and follow. It was her; it will always be her. I give my eternal gratitude for she has evoked that which I did not consider important, and it is this that truly gave me the needed guidance I had once begged for.
It is then that my journey commenced, the moment by which I had the sufficient level of maturity that would help me understand. With my contingent incentives, my stubborn perseverance, my resilient perspective and my unique passion, I went on forth into finding the ultimate truth; expecting to rise up in totalitarian supremacy and embrace complete omniscience.
It is said that at the beginning of times, it was all chaos and confusion; formless, empty, and reigned by the abyss and darkness within it. If so, are we humans to be considered founders of light, or elements of such darkness? We bear the ability of choice, we possess will, and with it the opportunity of change. Fundamentally the aim is to transmit and transcend the power of will, and then acquire the transformation that aids the ultimate purpose. Whether we were assembled as remains of deep blackness serving as it’s conservancy, or rather an illuminating deliverance and liberation nullifying such past; our destiny has no bounds, no limits, no predictability and no alteration, meaning, it will stand irrelevant to the outcome of our actions if it is known. In simpler words, the past has an effete effect on our future and the future as everything else cannot be understood, destiny is not written in stone but it is not determined by ourselves either.
...If power is control, then I plan to control power...
Actions do not measure capacity, they measure motivation. Capacity is present and equal; the distinction lays on its manifestation, on the way we choose to demonstrate it. Our individual intentions, our thoughts, our emotions, our purposes, these are what become of grave importance in action coming directly from the source of mind. If we managed to have the same mind, then we would be able to reach the state of consensus and perhaps then reach this perfect paradise of human coexistence and harmony.
I.N.U maintained the title of this paradise I speak of, the first and possibly last true utopia for nearly 26 years...
December 21st, year 2176, Noon, I.N.U
I know not the essence of earth and water, only the aspect of them and their corresponding sense. The very air I breathe can only be assimilated to a certain degree, these limits are what I refuse to accept, and I must travel as deep as imagination itself.
Every one claimed to feel truly liberated, free, and happy; except the freelancers. My brother became one, he endured years at I.N.U until he just seemed to had enough; perhaps excellence can also be flawed. Do we all seek the same? Or are we truly different? I always thought that even if we were different and truly unique as individuals no one could outwit the system, whether the current one at I.N.U or all the previous ones from different civilizations. My brother claimed I.N.U was only another conspiracy, “yet another group of manipulative devils, like a bunch of feminists preying on foolishly depraved men” he said, I never quite understood what he meant or why choose those particular words to prove his point. In any case, he was banned, exiled from I.N.U, called delirious and dangerous. He left happier than he was in all the time spent on I.N.U combined.
