The last thing that mankind will come to understand about their existence is the obvious, because the truth was openly accessible to them all along.
Fortunately, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of mass violence by the public.
In any field of study, you have masters like Nikola Tesla or Isaac Newton. Students tend to read a lot about those people, but very few venture beyond that to study what those masters studied. There’s a big difference there.
Is it not high time we finally address the issue of human stupidity? From whence has this widespread trait come and what does it want with us? And why do we know so little about it?
The ignorant vs the super-ignorant. Who will win?
People still think the truth is a religious, academic or philosophical matter. They either “like it” or they “don’t like it”. Honestly, it’s just better that they don’t understand any of it.
We will gradually become indifferent to what goes on in the minds of other people when we acquire a knowledge of the superficial nature of their thoughts.
Nothing changes. The only question is what can you rediscover.

Is there something wrong with you as a person, or with the structure of society? Both.

Life is full of suffering, but we make it worse with our voluntary stupidity and willful blindness.
It's best that people don't know how the world works, because if people really knew, they'd be like, "Why am I wasting my time on this bullshit profession or pastime when I could be doing something that really matters??". Exactly. Just stay in your own delusion man.
People say they want to know the truth, but when you tell it to them and they don’t like it, they decide that it’s no good.
The biggest industry in the world is insurance, which refers to underwriting liability. So what does it mean for society that most of the world's commodity exchange is taking place based on people anticipating that things will go wrong, and not right?
The alternative media scene is like restaurant row. If all those fast-food joints are really in competition with each other, why are they located right next to each other on the same street? Because they’re indirectly working together. Duh.
Because people do not have an objective approach to reality, they have to be stimulated and guided through advertising, marketing and propaganda.
When someone makes an empty statement like, “Make America Great Again”, and can get half a country behind him to get elected, without even specifying what “great” means, or “great at what?”, then you should be afraid for your welfare in a society like that.
One of ways that things remain a secret in plain sight is that people are already so used to the lies in their own culture that it doesn't bother them when the overall deceptions reach a height.
Some people can't taste their food very well, and they don't want to either. They're already attached to their established palate and can't move away from it. All food is either "good" or "bad" to them because they haven't developed a sense of nuance in their taste.
If you want to create an uprising in the West, just cut off the entertainment and the junk food.
Intelligent people learn from every thing and every one, whilst average people only learn from their own experiences. As for the stupid - they already have all the answers, apparently.
People are not sufficiently pressured to discover the truth. It makes them uncomfortable because opinions, theories and ideologies are being traded as a very popular social currency right now.
Most people are not capable of being objective, nor will they ever be, just like a fish can’t climb a tree. Why is that? Because if objectivity was within their grasp, then they’d be able to figure out the truth, and the cosmic censorship would be over.
If you knew the truth, you wouldn’t be here.
Ants know more about their society than humans do.
I know it's not popular, but what’s wrong with striving for some precision and accuracy in your perception and communication of things?

Some people love to talk about nothing. It's the only thing they know anything about.

Where have all the masters gone?
There’s a new story every week that dominates public attention, so you only get a narrow view of things. It’s like looking at the ground while walking, instead of looking up. How do you expect to see anything?
This is going to be remembered as the society that had access to everything, yet they threw it all away. Even if you had a few people here and there that did choose to access what was important, would that change the overall evaluation of a wasteful society? Nope
The alternative media are just pontificating about bears, but they’ve never seen any bears.
The heart pumps blood? Really? So what pumps the heart?
Having the proper mindset is partially about being able to qualitatively perceive and discern between the seen and the unseen.
If you can invigorate an entire nation to band behind Trump on the basis of a catchphrase like “Make America Great Again”, imagine what would have happened if he’d said something else, like “Kill all the Europeans”?
The masses have to be won by propaganda.
Edison said he had to try 1000 times before he got the light-bulb right, but if he had just done some studying and simple math he wouldn’t have had to try so many times. Stupid.
Repeating what the authorities say isn’t the same as speaking with authority. It’s just parroting.
The way we do things in society is garbage, so you won’t arrive at any understanding without a higher vantage point.
"Organic food" doesn't speak well of society at large, because it means people have allowed their regular food to become so toxified that certain corporations have to come along and offer market-solutions through organic food.

If you can't even define what "stupidity" is, how can you claim to know what "knowledge" or "wisdom" is?
There’s a very fine line between understanding something, and thinking you understand something.
The truth is a snare; you cannot have it without being caught. In other words, you cannot catch it. Rather, it catches you.

It takes a certain kind of discipline to understand a reality that most people cannot perceive.
Some ideas are too big for people's little heads.

There are primarily two types of evil in the world: Physical Evil, like rape, murder, and theft, and Intellectual Evil, like deceit, dogmatism, and willful close-mindedness.
Greekspeek isn't about making stuff up or building an audience. If that was the case, I'd be saying, "Listen to me", instead of "Listen to the information".
Anyone who claims to know the answers to the big issues in life is laughed at, whilst the man who claims that he doesn't know the answer is considered great.
Things are easy once you know how to do them. Duh. It’s not magic. Building a watch is easy if you’re familiar with the process. But if you’re not, you might as well give the parts to a monkey and see what happens.
They say life is like a game of chess...but most people don't know how to play chess.

In a world that has been turned on its head, the truth actually becomes a moment of falsehood.
One of the red flags that a society is in trouble is when people start to demand answers to questions that have already been answered. Good vs evil? What is "love"? Those things were answered thousands of years ago. So why is there no clarity on them now? Uh oh...
Saying that you can tell the future by looking at what’s online is like saying you know all about cows by analyzing the grass they eat. Actually, the latter is more informative.
"Truth" to the masses is like food for a pig - it's just another thing to eat. If you offered the pig a 5-star meal instead of his regular slop, he couldn't tell the difference. Both of them are equally "true" to him. So why bother preparing the fancy meal when slop will do?
If you don't know the future, you better get to know someone who does.
If you meet someone at the bus stop and bring the truth up, they’ll smile and walk away because it makes no sense to them. But if you bring the same truth up to your family who raised you and live with you, they’ll decide to make your life hell. Interesting, isn’t it?

Because of your hard-coded sensibilities, tastes, likes and dislikes, there’s always going to be stuff you’re censored to, even if it was right in front of you. So you should learn how to examine that.

We're living in an Emperor-Has-No-Clothes world, where all the elites and educated people are unable to uncover what's obviously going on right in front of them; a child has to do it. Too bad we send all the children to school where they end up like the adults...but maybe if we ask a toddler?

Is that really something you want to lean on? Opinion and ideology? I'm not saying it should be ignored, but if you lean on it, it's going to break.

If the truth shall kill them, are we wrong to let them die?
We eat well, drink well, live well, but when we got to sleep, we do not have good dreams. Why is that?

Saying that the universe came from an explosion in space is like saying that Webster's dictionary came from an explosion in a printing factory.

He who makes himself a worm cannot complain afterwards if people step on him.
The truth is not a matter of "faith", yet most people treat their convictions, doctrines and holy texts as articles of faith. If you “believe” in it, then it’s real, and if you don’t believe, then it’s not. None of it has to be substantiated.

People love false hope.
Certain things can't be learned by hearing them only once.
Engineers can’t even define what "sound" is. They say it’s a “wave”. A “wave” is what something does, not what it is. If I’m waving at you, that’s an action I'm performing. A wave is a motion, not an object. You can't just say sound is a "wave". A wave of what?
If the news is fake, imagine how bad history must be.
All you have is time, because you’re born naked and die naked. So if anyone says, “I don’t have time for that”, you can translate that into “I really don’t know how to manage my time for that”.

Fundamentally: there are 2 opposing forces in the universe: One is implosive, which is contractive, cooling and condensing. The other is explosive which is expansive, heating and decomposing.
The reason we prefer to think so well of others is that we're afraid of what being critical of them implies about ourselves. The basis of much optimism is self-preservation.
If half the world just helped one person, wouldn't that would take care of the other half?
Even if all possible "scientific" questions be answered, the problems of life have still not been touched at all.
It is best not to go on great quests for the truth; it will only make you miserable.
If you understand that there’s a playbook for how the future unfolds, then that’s what you need to use to measure how things change. So what's the playbook?
Of course Hollywood can’t make good movies anymore. Just look at the 21st century. It’s because of the audience that they’re accommodating; that’s why the movies are crap.

Do you really want to sift through the faeces that is humanity, looking for a dime? If I knew I’d find a diamond, then maybe yeah, but for a dime…
Think before you think.

Greekspeak is poison to most people because it doesn’t accommodate the prevailing mindset in society.
The first thing to know about stupidity is that we don't know much about it. Why has there never been any serious academic investigation of this subject that affects all of mankind?
Most people are so censored that everything they engage in has to be emotionally-based. It's all about how it makes them feel, not what's happening objectively.
When you tell people that things are bad in the world, they just think of what they already know and imagine it in a worse condition. That’s not it. Things are worse than what you could imagine because of things you know nothing about.

Why has the increase in technological advances had an inverse effect on the intelligence of humanity? Hmmm.
Is there a conspiracy? Yes. Is it obvious? Of course. Does it matter? No. Why? Because of cosmic censorship.
