Operation: You

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”


New Year’s Resolutions are pointless.

What difference does it make when the day changes from December 31st to January 1st? No difference; its just another day.

Most people don’t reach their goals because they aren’t committed to the change that needs to take place in order to make it happen.

If you want to change the world, the first person that must change is you. And as everyone knows: a single, yet powerful enough voice can start and avalanche.

Of course, not everyone wants to change the world. There’s no real need for that either. What really is needed is for people to accept that change starts from within. You have the power and the tools to make change happen in your life (if change is what you are after).

My previous article on this topic: The Enemy And How To Defeat It.

Change of oneself will be the topic of discussion today. Today it’ll be a bit more on the philosophical side of things, but I’ll keep it light enough. We will explore on some ideas and then expand on those thoughts.

Let’s bite into it.

The Cave

Source: Jeremy Bishop

Unclose your mind. You are not a prisoner. You are a bird in fight, searching the skies for dreams.

Haruki Murakami

One of Plato’s more famous pieces is the allegory of the cave:

What is the allegory of the cave? In this allegory, people prisoned in a cave. There are no trees or flowers, and no sun- or moonlight.

The people living in the cave see shadows projected on a wall. These shadows are created by real objects, but all these people see is the shadow. The shadow is what is real for the prisoners, and they are mesmerized by them. They can’t imagine a world outside of the cave.

One day one of the prisoners manages to escape the cave. For the first time in his life he sees things as they are; not as shadows, but as real objects. What a wonderful existence.

Enlightened by this revelation, he heads back into the cave. His eyes got adjusted to the sunlight and he stumbles a bit. By the time he reaches his friends still stuck in the cave he seems disoriented and lost – like a crazy person would.

He starts talking about how the shadows aren’t real. There’s a real world out there with real objects for one to see, touch and experience. But his friends in the cave only know shadows. The shadows have been part of their life for their entire existence. This is all they know, and one person pointing out to everyone else isn’t going to convince them otherwise. The ‘masses’ won’t believe the truth speaker, because it isn’t their reality.

Modern examples of the cave would be movies like the Matrix, or the song “Disillusioned” by A Perfect Circle:

Relevant video!

The cave Plato was talking about is still a reality today. Instead of living in a cave, people today live in their own bubbles. These bubbles are the societal norms, sciences, the education system and the monetary systems – just to name a few.

The vast majority are comfortable living in their bubble. This is fine, I guess. But like Plato pointed out, there’s a richer life out there in the world outside the cave for those who seek it.

The problem, really, is that these bubbles are now bigger and stronger than ever before because of our silicon obsession. Our devices, social media platforms and instant messaging make the fire burn ever brighter and in turn it also makes the shadows even larger and thus, overwhelming.

That’s where we’re going next.

The Echo

Source: Jason Rosewell

“No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness.”


Do you know the ‘broken telephone’ game?

In this famous children’s game, the participants are in a line and the first person at the start of the line thinks of a sentence or a phrase and then tells it to the person next to them. That person then says what he/she heard to the next person, who then tells it to the next person. Once the message reaches the last person, he/she will then say the sentence/phrase he/she heard out loud. If played correctly, the sentence/phrase will no longer resemble the original, but has instead turned into something quite different.

This is a well-known psychological phenomenon that happens naturally. It is the reason why many rumours and gossips turn into bigger problems than what they actually are/were. The original message gets lost somewhere along the way. Sometimes this retelling of stories ends up creating alternative, false group memories. People call this phenomenon the “Mandela Effect”.

This problem also exists in bureaucracies, politics and media in general.

“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”

Adolf Hitler

Its noticeable in today’s culture where people only read headlines and slogans rather than bothering to read entire articles or looking things up further. It is the headlines that catch the attention, not the content within (which can even be contrary to what the headline says). Once a headline is out there, it then starts the social media rumba. Because “everyone” (some, a minority, do read the articles) just reads the headline and runs into their own conclusions, the original message (the content of the article) is soon lost in the echo, and only the headline + something else remains. This amplifies the message of the headline, which is the actual message.

People, in general, are lazy. Mainstream media knows this. This is why all of their content these days resemble a headline, or “the most important bit,” at least from someone’s point of view. All they have to do then is to repeat the most important bit to get it on everyone’s radar. This then results in the following:

I also wrote about this in my article “Your Life Is A Lie”.

Only the headline or slogan (or the main message) is important. Everything else is close to irrelevant. What is important is that people take the headline, add their own spin to it, and soon only the headline remains in people’s minds. In order for this to work the headline itself needs to be kept relatively short and easy to understand.

You know how they say all publicity is good for you, whether it is negative or positive? That’s what we’re talking about here.

But that’s merely how we got to this point. These days the powers that be are also censoring content that is not to their liking. It is an impossible task to be sure, as there always is more than one viewpoint.

Except that is not entirely true. Sometimes there is just one point of view. Take math for example, or programming. The way to get there may deviate a little bit, but the question and the answer will remain the same. This is why some started calling it TV programming, because you mostly just get to hear one side of the story from your television – and so it resembles computer programming. From this point of view, the word “TV-program” has a built-in hint in it.

On the television, all roads lead to Rome.

“If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.”

Joseph Goebbels

It’s not just some people saying it. CIA ran experiments on mind control and media manipulation. Some of the more well-known examples of this would be “Operation Mockingbird” and “MK-Ultra”. I won’t go into these, as it is your job to look into it if you want to know more, but here’s a documentary:

I mentioned censorship. Its happening in spades today. Just today I saw a chat program change my wording (deleting part of sentence) in real time. I thought it was a harmless phrasing (a word with negative connotation), and it was. Just not according to the chatting software. And no, it was not one of the “banned words” of today either.

Banned words? There are certain words and topics (or connections to said topics) you can’t mention or your content will get blocked on search engines, or you may get banned from platforms. You can guess which ones those are in case you aren’t familiar with this concept. Only certain people are allowed to talk about certain topics, and only from one point of view. There’s a word for this kind of behaviour from the press, and that word is propaganda.

Where are we headed with this?

Since only certain viewpoints are accepted and only by certain people, it automatically leaves out huge chunks of the population out of the conversation. This means that they get funnelled to other places where they can discuss things. This then creates at least two echo chambers where the other point of view isn’t allowed to exist. In the other it is the manipulators who police thought, in the other it is the people (users) themselves.

Divide and conquer has always been an effective tool of warfare. It’s good to keep this in mind.

There’s a more sinister side to all of this. Fear is known to be one of the best ways to control people. A kid is afraid of the dark because he doesn’t know what to expect from it. An adult may be afraid of heights for both rational and irrational reasons.

Media (or the controllers of it) use fear to control people as well. They’ve always done this, but it is more noticeable today than ever before. Numbers of the cases rising on screens, constant reminders that ‘the thing’ exists and the talk of death and disease has caused an entire population to fall to its knees.

Here’s a video on this topic:

I’ve used this video before in my articles. It is worth a re-watch.

I also wrote an article about fear: Do You Believe In Ghosts?

Now that we’re up-to-date on this topic, I will give you questions that will take you down a deep and dark path if you want to go there.

Who owns the media houses in your country? As in, who owns the TV stations, the newspapers and magazines?

How do they get paid? Who pays them? Follow the money.

Answering these questions will show you something you probably didn’t want to know.

But let’s not stop there. Do you know the website zerohedge.com? Famously, some of the authors on the site write under the username “Tyler Durden” (a character from the movie Fight Club). This is to protect the anonymity of the writers while also giving them a platform to share their ideas. There are also writers who writer using their own username / real name.

The main point is: there is more than one writer using the username Tyler Durden on the site. I know this to be the case because as a writer I know how long it takes to write an article. Research, writing itself and editing takes time.

What if I told you this happens in the (written) mainstream media as well? Oh yes. I’ll leave most of that research up to the reader.

Why bring this up? Well, you see, AI can write articles too. Could also be just many writers or one extremely prolific writer. It’s all just a theory, though.

Apparently in China they’ve now started using AI news anchors as well. And no, people could not tell the difference.

Lets continue down this path.

Its Just A Theory

Source: Hassan Pasha

“The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”


Since the dawn of time, or at least as long as humans could think, they’ve theorized on various things. Why is the sky blue? Why is there a sun? Why do berries taste the way they taste?

The theorizing has led us to finding answers to many of these questions.

Perhaps the most time consuming theories of all are the questions: what is the purpose of life? Why are we here and where are we headed? Many moons have been and are yet to be spent thinking about these questions.

I already mentioned the Mandela effect. It comes from the idea that many thought Nelson Mandela died in the 1980’s in an African prison, when in reality he died in 2013. This didn’t affect me personally. I just didn’t care about Mandela’s existence in the first place. I got interested in him after his death.

But there are other examples of the Mandela effect. In Star Wars Episode V Darth Vader doesn’t say “Luke, I am your father” instead, it is “No, I am your father”. In Snow White and Seven Dwarves, many remember the queen saying to the mirror the following: “mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” But this is also incorrect, it’s actually “magic mirror on the wall,…”.

Spoiler warning? Ah, too late.

There are many film theories out there. Some of them are undoubtedly true while others are just that, theories. The great thing about art is that you can come up with your own reasons for its existence. I’ve heard that sometimes the artists themselves don’t know why they created what they created, and these theories help them explain their thoughts and inspirations to themselves.

Other than film theories, there are also game theories. Why is the princess always in another castle? Is it just the reason given to keep you playing, or is the Princess dating Bowser and avoiding Mario? There are many wonderful and wild theories connected to games. The game creators often either dismiss them outright, or remain silent about them.

Film and game theories are fun. There’s no real point to them, because films and games aren’t real. Yet, some people take these theories very seriously, and can act defensively when challenged on their ideas. It is mostly harmless, so it is best to let them be.

What we do learn from this is that people have false memories of events in the past. Why? I don’t know. There are many theories about that, though. I mean, of course there are.

The reason why I bring up memories is to talk about conspiracy theories. The origin of the term “conspiracy theory” is difficult to pinpoint, but it was popularized by the CIA in 1967 to discredit those who questioned the official narrative, especially when it came to the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963.

What is a conspiracy? The word “conspiracy” means a plot or a secret plan made by two or more people to commit harmful or illegal acts.

What is a theory? A non-conclusive conclusion. Usually this conclusion is based on some kind of data / evidence. Sometimes a theory is just a theory, not based on anything tangible.

What is a conspiracy theory? It is an umbrella term used to discredit anyone who dares question past and present events. This seems to be the main purpose of calling something a “conspiracy theory”. It is quite effective, considering the amount of people who recoil as soon as they hear the word. Not all conspiracy theories are true, but at the same time, some of them aren’t false.

Have any actual conspiracies been exposed? Yes. Here’s an example:

Yes, companies actually conspired together to create inferior products (in this case lightbulbs), this then shortened the lifespan of the product – which then increased their profits as sales went up. Does anyone think this doesn’t still happen today?

What I’m trying to say is that some conspiracy theories are just that, theories. One would be right to question the validity of such theories. On the other hand, some conspiracy theories are no longer theories. Instead, they’re plain conspiracies (no longer theories) out there for everyone to see.

Why is this important?

People look at game and film theories and have fun with them. Most do not take them seriously. Then they look at conspiracy theories, and outright dismiss them. “It’s just a theory,” they say.

And guess what? They’re correct. Whatever the theory is, it IS just a theory. Theory means that the evidence is non-conclusive.

With that out of the way, we can take a look at other theories. Here’s a list:

  • Germ THEORY
  • Big Bang THEORY
  • THEORY of Evolution
  • String THEORY
  • THEORY of General Relativity
  • Game THEORY

There’s nothing wrong with these theories. In fact, there is evidence that suggests these theories may be correct. But at the end of day, these too are just theories. One should approach them with the same scepticism as they approach conspiracy theories. Question everything.

By this point in the article the reader should have reached the conclusion that the official narrative:

a) Can be questioned

b) Should be questioned

The media has a story to tell; a narrative to push. Why?

Many of us have false memories of the past. Why?

Theories often do not offer conclusive answers. And once theories are proven correct (or can’t be proven incorrect), they are no longer theories.

Moving on.

Facing Your Shadow

Source: Robert Zunikoff

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”


Plato knew that one can’t be woken up forcibly. People are comfortable living in the cave. The official narrative has a strong grip on people’s minds.

Plato knew this because his teacher, Socrates, got executed for spreading his ideas and speaking the truth. It also wasn’t the first or the last time in history this had happened.

Plato came up with another way to wake up the masses, or at least the occasional individual. He began preaching the importance of philosophy, and the questioning of one’s beliefs.

Philosophy is about asking and answering the big and small questions in life, and the desire to ask such questions. Questions such as:

Why do I believe the things I believe?

What is moral? What is just?

Why ‘it’ is so rather than isn’t?

As you can probably notice, these are the kind of questions someone who is meditating might be asking themselves.

Asking these questions has led many to question reality itself, because why there is rather than isn’t? is not an easy to question to answer.

Notice how only humans have these problems. Animals don’t go around asking what reality consists of… or do they?

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Circling back to the topic at hand. Plato’s ideas inspired many philosophers since his time (assuming history isn’t just a bunch of mumbo jumbo), and then one day Friedrich Nietzsche arrived at the scene with his ideas.

Nietzsche is perhaps best known for nihilism, but there’s more to his work than just an existential crisis in written form. He came up with the idea of “Übermensch,” for example, which was later adopted by the National Socialist party – once they had butchered the original meaning, of course. Nietzsche considered himself a proud, pure-blooded Pole.

If you understand Nietzsche’s work, then you will also understand what he meant by his version of “Übermensch”. In the Nazi version the meaning of the word was used to point to the supposed superiority of the Aryan, but especially German, race. All other races were considered inferior to the “superior race”. This was further enhanced with the idea of eugenics.

Hitler, on the other hand, got his idea for eugenics from the Americans. You should look into this more in case you are interested.

What Nietzsche meant with his version of Übermensch? Rather than believing in the superiority of a certain race, Nietzsche suggested the idea of Übermensch (basically, super human) as an ideal; a goal to strive for.

Technically, anyone anywhere could become Übermensch in Nietzsche’s ideal, but it was more about changing society to create said super humans. Basically, he advocated for anarchy. In his ideal only the strong survived, and thus the society only created superior men due to their environment. In this ideal, women chose only the superior men to breed with, and the weak men together with their genes eventually died off.

As we now know, Nietzsche’s ideal didn’t come to pass. Instead, today we’re basically living in Idiocracy:

The clip in short: smart people don’t breed as much as dumb people, because there ARE risks involved with breeding, and smart people are better at assessing risks. Humans do not have natural predators, and dumb people don’t know or don’t care about the risks involved – so they end up breeding more than smart people. This then creates imbalance and the society becomes dumber as a whole. This is what the movie is about.

Now, I’d like to point out that it is the society that enables this kind of behaviour, and so also at fault for the outcome. I don’t know why it is so, but there we go. It is the society and the governments who, once again, created their own problems.

Thomas Sowell had something to say about “unintended consequences”.

The reason why Nietzsche’s ideal didn’t come to pass is because the environment didn’t change accordingly in order to accommodate the change. But as we’ve seen in recent years, we’re now teetering ever closer to anarchy all around the world. Anarchy, or totalitarian control grid. Pick your poison.

Rather than us moving towards anarchy by choice, we will choose it because we have no choice. Even if the totalitarian reality comes to pass, it will eventually fail like all totalitarian regimes do. Communism/Collectivism doesn’t work in the long run.

This simply means that Nietzsche’s ideal is not an entirely dead idea. Here’s a relevant video on it:

Nietzsche talked about Slave Morality and Master Morality.

In Slave Morality, the person adjusts himself to the crowd. He gets pushed around because he succumbs to the peer pressure. He has dreams and aspirations, but because he’s always trying to make someone else happy, he ends up living someone else’s dream for the other person. He becomes a slave, not by choice, but because he’s too weak-minded to say no.

In Master Morality it is the opposite. Peer pressure doesn’t affect this kind of person as much. He does as he wishes (within limits), pursues his own dreams and constantly works on himself. He’s a master of his own universe.

Be honest with yourself, to which morality out of these two do you belong to?

[If and when] an individual makes an attempt to see his shadow, he becomes aware of (and often ashamed of) those qualities and impulses he denies in himself but can plainly see in others — such things as egotism, mental laziness, and sloppiness; unreal fantasies, schemes, and plots; carelessness and cowardice; inordinate love of money and possessions that needs a painful and lengthy work of self-education.

Marie-Louise von Franz

Carl Jung talked about “the shadow” quite a bit in his work.

What is the shadow? The shadow is the unconscious mind of a person. Where as ego is the conscious mind, the shadow (Id) are the things that one isn’t consciously aware of.

The shadow isn’t necessarily a negative thing (it usually is because one usually rejects the negative aspects of their personality and only focus on the positives), it just happens to be the aspects of your personality that exist while you do not consciously recognize them to exist.

Except that people often do recognize their own shadow. They see it in others and point it out. A kind of projection of their own failing.

An example of this would be feminists calling men misogynists (someone who hates women), usually without basis for their argument, when it is in fact often they themselves who hate men. And have you noticed how it is the people most obsessed with race that call other people racists? This kind of projection, mired in hypocrisy, is incredulous at best.

As it often is the case: it takes one to know one.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Back to talking about the shadow.

According to Jung, everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser the shadow becomes. There’s no way to escape the shadow; no way to hide from it. It is the dark side of one’s personality – the side that one often refuses to accept. And the more one tries to supress it, the more it gets projected into the world through actions and thoughts.

In psychoanalysis there exists a process called individuation. In Jungian (or analytical) psychology, individuation is the process where the individual self develops out of an undifferentiated unconscious by acknowledging and facing their own shadow. This is the process through which an immature psyche develops into a mature psyche.

What I take this to mean is that a person doesn’t fully develop and become an adult until they accept themselves as they are, together with one’s faults. I guess this is to say that everyone has the good, the bad and the ugly side to their personality.

There are many self-righteous people out there projecting what they see in themselves into the world. Yet, if only those who bear no sin were allowed to throw stones, no stones would be thrown at all.

One could take coming face-to-face with your shadow to be akin to confessing your sins, but it goes deeper than that. Everyone carries a shadow. Everyone is capable, given the right circumstances, to succumb to the darker side of their personality. And if one does not acknowledge this consciously, it is more likely to happen unconsciously.

One must face their own shadow, or they will never fully mature into adulthood.

At this point in the article I’d like to point out that everyone is capable of both good and evil. If one is not conscious of the things they are doing, or not thinking clearly, they are more likely to perform what are considered evil actions toward others.

With that in mind, it is time we conclude and close this chapter.

It Is The Choices We Make

Source: Robert Anasch

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

In recent times the world has turned upside down. We’ve been this current situation for years now if the reader hasn’t noticed. I wouldn’t blame anyone for missing it. Time passes by quickly, and almost everyone’s always preoccupied by something else.

What we’re currently living through is starting to lose its glister. More and more people are waking up to the current reality. Yet, many still don’t quite know what to make of what is happening around them.

If you’ve ever been in an abusive relationship, be it by partner or a parent, then living through these times must have felt somewhat familiar to you. Here’s a video on this topic:

Abuse is never “the right thing to do”. Abusers may not understand or think about what they are doing as they are doing it, but their actions leave a mark on people’s minds, and sometimes bodies, too.

Those who abuse power will eventually lose their power. Nobody likes a tyrant. It is then when those who followed the orders of said tyrants need to pay their dues. It is then (well, always) when “I was just following orders” does not pass as an excuse. This is because the people who go along to get along are the ones who end up hurting not just themselves, but also those nearest and dearest to them.

Why do good people commit harmful acts? Here’s a video on this topic:

The problems we’re now faced with are not new. This has happened multiple times in history before. Propaganda itself is nothing new, but the masses fall for it every time. The path we’re on will lead to violence.

How do I know this? I’ve studied enough history to know what is going to happen. It happened in Germany, Russia and China. But don’t listen to me when you can hear to Joseph Goebbels (the head of Nazi propaganda) explain it instead:

“Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.”

Joseph Goebbels

People failed to resist, or didn’t understand that they needed to resist. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn wrote and talked about his failure (and the failure of the people of Russia) for the rest of his life during and after the rise and fall of Soviet Union.

For now it is still possible to resist peacefully. There’s still time to be on the right side of history:

It is the choices we make that determine where we end up. When all is said and done, during the final accounting, it is your actions that speak louder than words.

But in case people fail to resist as history has shown to happen again and again, it is good to remember these words:

“Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:

– I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
– I shall fear only God.
– I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
– I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
– I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.”

Mahatma Gandhi

During this process I’ve also had to come face-to-face with my own shadow. I’ve read the papers and books by the global elite. I understand what the plan is, more so than what I’m willing to write on my blog. There’s no point in writing anything if it ends up getting removed from sight by an algorithm.

In facing my shadow, I’ve also come to understand how and why the powers that be think the way they do. And the kicker is, I can’t bring myself to fully disagree with their conclusions.

In their opinion, the masses are vulgar creatures that need to be led by someone, lest there be chaos. Judging by what I’ve seen in my lifetime, and especially during the past two years, I can only concur that a good portion of humanity would fall into the category of being “vulgar”, ready to commit heinous acts at a moments notice because they lack self control. At this current moment, the world is proving their way of thinking correct. By the by, anyone who is not part of the “elite” belongs to this group according to their literature.

The reason why the elite are in their position is because someone has to be in that position. If it wasn’t them, it would be someone else. It could be someone even worse, if you can imagine that.

That being said, I don’t agree with their methods, nor do I believe people necessarily need to be controlled. Though, maybe they’ve tried other methods in the past and it just didn’t work. There’s no way to know.

The masses are the way they are today is because all their lives they’ve been led down a path that leads to the results we’re getting today. The education system, meaningless jobs/lives and constant consumerism. I’ve already talked about this aplenty in my previous articles, so I won’t go more into it here.

The point ultimately is: the elite themselves are at fault for creating the systems that produce these vulgar creatures. They may be aware of this fact. Perhaps this is the thing they’re trying to fix. I shudder at the thought of what that may entail.

I figure some of the readers don’t know what I’m talking about in this part of the article. That is fine.

Let’s finish this article on a more positive note.

Master Of The Universe

Source: Raimond Klavins

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies, for the hardest victory is over self.”


Life is a series of choices. What is said can’t be unsaid, and what is done can’t be undone. This is why many choose to say nothing and do nothing. They go along to get along.

In this article we’ve climbed out of a metaphorical cave and faced our shadows. We can see where the world is currently at and we know where it all leads to.

History has a bad habit of repeating itself, or at least it rhymes. It is only after the fact that people realized what they should have done in the past.

As it often is the case, our human instinct is pretty good at telling us what we should do.

Yet, because we fear what others may think of us when go against the grain, we don’t do the things we know to be right.

At the same time, it only takes one person doing the right thing to encourage others to do the same.

You can be that person to someone else.

In order to do that, one must first face and overcome his own shadow.

For the hardest victory always is and always will be over self.

    I am sorry the proper articles are all Greek to you!
    Any ways, here is Google translation of the article about politics, and for more reading follow the link
    “The most common way for someone to hurt you is to deceive you . It draws your attention somewhere while the game is being played elsewhere. The basic principle of politics is deception and the role of politics is to deceive, to mislead, while to equate politicians with sophists is very flattering for politicians! From antiquity until today only the enrichment of the methods of deception has changed. The Sophists, although they had a great influence on their time, received negative criticism, mainly from Socrates and Plato.”

    And about God from Celsous
    “[…] To deal with the teaching of nature – and specifically with the position that God did not create any mortal creature. On the contrary, the works of God are eternal and immortal. And their works are mortal beings. And the soul is the work of God, but the nature of the body is different. And nature does not distinguish between the bodies of bats and worms and frogs and humans. Everything is made of the same material and in the same way everything is perishable. Their nature is common: It goes through and again through differentiations to return to its original state. No product of matter is immortal.”

      If all they do is use difficult words to disguise their own ignorance;

      They themselves did not understand what they heard or read.

      Knowledge comes from books; wisdom comes from experience.


  3. Hate is easy. Humans love to hate. Humans are cowards. They only feel confident to openly hate those who they are allowed to hate openly (as directed by their leaders). Humans are tools. And fools. So history returns, because humans (the masses) couldn’t be bothered to learn from it, because they are mostly indifferent.

An individual in a crowd is a grain of sand amid other grains of sand, which the wind stirs up at will.” Gustave Le Bon
