Changing the topic of conversation within independent communities is one of the most important things we can do to transform the purpose and therefore the role of physical objects, money and the economic system in our lives.
The problem is that even within independent communities our meaning comes from physical objects or from our interaction with physical objects and not from our presence in our own lives and in other’s lives.
It looks like we are incapable of deriving meaning from knowledge, imagination and emotions in order to deepen our meaning. We derive meaning from them but only to create more objects.
For us, humans, the purpose of knowledge is not to deepen our emotions and increase sense of empathy and humanity thus uniting us and propelling us in new directions. The only way we can know how to use knowledge is by turning into physical objects with which to control one another or the environment.
If I hear another ‘I will build my house from this or that’ or ‘I will knit my jumper, shirt, gloves, pants out of this or that’ or ‘I will restore this or that’.
Physical objects are not important. Physical objects exist in order to support us. Yes, to support us so that we could support one another. Our purpose is not manufacture objects. Our purpose is to improve how we love ourselves and one another.
Physical objects do not deserve our time. Or, they deserve only the amount of time that ensures that there are enough of them and that they are able to support our basic needs.
Why do people talk about restoring cars and bikes and pumps and making shoes or whatever else there is to make.
Here is a suggestion: why not begin with so what have you done today to increase your level of empathy, or others’ level of empathy. Or, what can the piece you are working do to increase our level of empathy, love, piece, equality, care, knowledge, you name it! Or, how about asking something as simple as: why do we still discuss physical objects?
We possess intelligence but we are not in control of it. The question mainstream has never asked and the question independent thinkers and independent media are abandoning is: why? Why aren’t we allowed to be in control of our own intelligence?
The challenge is to allow your creative ideas to keep expanding and never. To keep going on and on in all directions in an infinite loop of creativity that becomes you and your life. Every breath is a dance of life. Every spoonful of tastes is a an aspect of life. Every drop water or anything else you drink or feel on your skin is a dimension of life for you to feel and experience and share and you primary purpose is to teach yourself and others how to find them, experience them and share them. With every step, with every movement, in any environment, at any time.
Why don’t we discuss why we are preventing one another from experiencing ourselves, one another and the environment by talking about meaningless physical objects?
Are we too afraid to ‘exchange’ ourselves, our ideas, our hopes, our fears. Of course we are! Yet it is only by exchanging them that we can begin to realize how similar and humane we are.
Therefore, it’s only by exchanging ourselves and our own ideas that we can begin to realize how meaningless it is to ignore our shared humanity in order to focus on physical objects.
