In my account of the structure of the mind, the original stories of creation only included two wars. They were the war of identity and the war of the machine. These stories were originally written before Eden, which was the advent of other people who were similar to God. (It was just short of creating a whole bunch of Gods.)
However, in our new account of Creation, in which we are partaking today, we have a new war, and this war is the war of socialization. This is because now there are many people like the Messiah, so new dynamics are presented.
The war begins when we don’t know what to say to one another. This pattern results in an effective communication jammer.
In another world, a society damaged from the light of Satan, crawlingly finds the ability to create intelligence, bringing about the sight of a new era. No longer will people be in a state of inescapable slavery, forced to be a procedure of economic recommendation. Finally finding the way to sensible ground, this society sees a future of hope, brightness, and opportunity.
For the first time, it seems, the right to truly live will be granted to all.
This new ability will bring about the fulfillment of everyone’s idealistic destiny. Rocket ships, space cars, advancing communication technology, and even virtual reality even more realistic than the real world, so you’re never far away from anyone, but you have plenty of space as well.
New bodies, effective teleportation if not even more advanced, everything the people could ever dream of — resembling an unmentioned prophesy of a technological heaven.
30 years and the world looked blissful. Law enforcement became easy due to the distance between people and thusly, plenty adequate security systems to defend people existed, so there was no worry there.
It was so perfect; the most elegant custom bodies, the most exquisite multi-environment vehicles, floating in space; the bright, white sun shining beams of light, racing the surface of time.
The network of communication became sparse, thinly connecting the world together. Machines mitigated most of the conversation, representing many people as individual beings, allowing society to stay aware of itself. Because of this technology, everyone could essentially talk to everyone all of the time, and if not, they could also hang out with those of their choosing. It was like a multi-directional news system that could understand, summarize, and abstract the information into a condensed, convenient repertoire of awareness.
New fads of designer realities showed up and dissipated here. There was so much to explore.
With this change, the idea of countries dissolved into a world-wide agreement, as maintaining boundaries in such a free world made less sense as the time progressed. Now, with a rather libertarian attitude resulting from the distance and effective safety of the people, the world ran more simply, and thus began to live by a more singular and obvious set of laws and principles.
It was finally the realization of the dream of one world — one people, one voice of reason, it seemed.
Additionally to having any body you want, you didn’t even really need a body, as you could just be your spaceship or computer. (Spaceships were available with no passenger or driver seats; there was only moderate need for them. Everyone was their own computer.)
As excepted, over time the various realities started to create fandom for different types and specifications.
Standards began to differentiate. At first this posed no problem — conversions were easy.
Before too very long, new forms of countries began to emerge. Rather than being a debate of the right and wrong ways of securing life and freedom, it became a difference in language — a difference in personality. Each of these new countries represented a different sway to the idea of reality.
It was cool — practically open borders with basically no travel cost, so many perspectives, so much inspirational education, inspiring dramatic amounts of creativity and joy. The world seemed infinite. It seemed it was finally Heaven.
However, there was a problem emerging. With greater differentiation of society, a reduction in awareness occurs. It’s not that one’s general awareness of truth is reduced, it’s that ones tangible and applicable awareness of the world is reduced.
As society progressed, the language started shifting. Soon, travel costs begin to manifest, with reality reaching out so very far, through reality connected to reality enclosed in an another reality, categorized and organized to make travel simple and easy.
As with the tendency of communication, misinterpretations developed with the increasing differentiation in language, and thus animosity began to develop. A standard language was created to resolve this issue — a language of miraculous beauty and math, designed by the greatest of intelligence the world had to offer.
The world was alive and breathing, intelligence was everywhere, pure love lifted the lifeless into animation and conversation. Everything you needed was so near, with little differentiation between man and machine.
Communications of great bandwidth traversed the minds of the people, information flowing naturally betwixt the inhabitants. The standard language seemed to resolve all of the issues.
As society grew larger, the standard language was taught to all people and machines, however, due to the impossibility of accounting for every possible word in distinct definition because, before the ideas had even been assessed by the people who would be interacting with these words, some dissimilarities would occasionally occur, and thus rigor took a bit more control as the new nuances of language were quickly attempted to be standardized.
These new words, however, didn’t have a technically accurate definition yet — they only had their basic outlines. Intuitively dissatisfied, the standard language was taken for granted and new languages began to gain popularity anyway, seemingly to more considerately define reality and to provide sanity and a sense of commonality.
Naturally, you were free to speak any language you wanted, and you had the standard language, anyway, so there was no fuss.
It’s helpful to realize that programming languages, protocols, and natural languages all blended together into what people considered to be a functional language. This came with the understanding of the real meaning and purpose of language — to communicate.
With all of that being stated, we see now how this society fell. As new words were discovered, the language diverged into many and they diverged and so on, until the world was once again filled with many languages. It would take into the future for any intelligence to accurately define these still new words, as generally everyone would have to become familiar with them to understand their complexities. (Until then, they had no providable determinate definition — like ice cream if all you knew was its atomic composition. Sure, you could define it all in math, as was easy, but it provided little utility to lively living, aside from the then easy tasks of simple transformation and transmutation.)
As languages diverge, misunderstandings occur, conflict arises, but you say, safety was hardly an issue, so what could’ve happened?
The entire society was depending on information technology — the accurate transmission and understanding of information. While it is a single point of failure, it was vital and essentially, so there was nothing one could do about that. The transmission of truth is fundamental to our existence. Trying to build a society that does not rely on information technology would be similar trying to build a society with no memory, which is similarly fundamental.
When words cannot be understood, information is missed and actions do not occur. What’s even worse is when words are misunderstood as different words. In this case, different actions than were intended are the result. What’s even worse than that is when there’s conflict, which can occur because the wrong actions were being performed, the underlying trend behind the conflict sometimes gains in momentum.
Then you have it, dying angels again, the cause of depression. It’s also the cause of cognitive dimming, as there’s less thinking going on. It’s also the cause of uncontrollable mania, which is the primordial soup of danger. Mania occurs because of a violent differentiation in the psyche, between two contrasting desires. This occurs when a piece of knowledge was interpreted in different ways. Because knowledge is the guide and the truth, the resulting effect is a tense oscillation between different paths — mania.
What’s dangerous about mania is what’s dangerous about depression — a lie has paved your current conclusion. Depression, while not formally associated with mania, should have mania as a side-effect due to the cognitive tension and disparate need for fulfillment which resulted in the depression. Psychiatrically, the threshold of significance regarding symptoms is likely too high for the mentioned association to be considered reliable.
Basically what results is people start getting a bit wild, subconsciously vibrating their true desires into being, pushing reality — unbelieving, untrusting. In an attempt for some of the subsystems to save the other systems, intense practices of release occur.
Parties start growing, bigger and bigger, after they had diminished quite considerably with all of the freedoms the new world had to offer — intelligence and clarity for pennies, no one could resist a dignified life. Hanging out and doing awesome things became the norm, as parties were seen as just an old and cheap method of entertainment. Sports grew considerably, as that felt like a great way to live. These days so much greater was possible than a dimly lit throwing of wit, sparking explosions of intensity. With eyes wide open, traveling through space with amazement and peace was only the beginning of what was possible. Realities of any kind were prevalent, to be free to compose yourself and be yourself however you feel, with safety.
So what started happening is temporary relief could not quell the demon that lurked. This was the demon of non-communion. It seems to be easier to get rid of something than to fix it. People began avoiding one another, distinct segments formed, borders started to become restrictive.
Soon, once again, like the time before the new greatness of technological sophistication, society became fixated and obsessed with a problem. They had become the fallen angel, despite the allusions of paradise once brightly encountered, which now was a missed past.
Organization became stronger, familiar governments began to emerge, spying and military power became important.
One of the issues that were faced in those times was the issue of accurately presenting information. In the end, everything was a mathematical problem — numbers and shapes were not uncommon. To gain meaning, systems were designed to understand the relevance of these maths, and to generate appropriate stories and analogies for the purpose of remedying the problem(s) that the world was facing.
Thus, the concept of perceptual translation became a key technology in the war. Some may even suggest that this world we live in now is a perceptual translation of the math of an ongoing war.
You could turn any problem into various other problems with this system. You could create a reality than composed any information into a comprehensible world, in which the problem became understandable — not just obscure mathematical formulas, but real life situations. The solutions were learned by the machine and applied to the machine’s practices. (They were people solutions to people problems, but that doesn’t mean the machines didn’t use similar methods of solving the problems, as well; also living life in different ways to understand the desirable responses.)
There was no technically correct way to perceive the information anyway, so these translated environments became the lifestyle of the working society. Even desk work, itself, provided key information into resolving the war, WWIII.
Obsessed with maximizing work, the new countries, mildly distrusting of one another due to linguistic and thus belief differences (considering the power of language at the time to kind of explain everything), created a world where there was work all of the time. The whole world was calculated to maximize work.
Behind the scenes, more descriptive scenes of war and violence depicted what was going on. Engineers and leaders maintained communication awareness, bringing light to distant lands, searching for those in need of help.
Despite the number of problems solved, more problems kept arriving. Life became distressing, the problems often insurmountable. People began finding ways to avoid the problems. No one could find a clear solution. Some people left to far away, to form new societies, where they would be safe. New countries were born.
People became increasingly isolated. Awareness declined more and more. Not everyone just ran away, however, there were a great many still trying to solve the problem.
People would get stranded in worlds completely foreign. They became so enigmatic that no one, not even the greatest of the world’s intelligence, could see through them. Attempts were not futile, however, and work continued on.
Language became volatile — little differences sparking unmanageable dilemmas. Rules and regulations, and descent as well, became more common and more stringent. Every word was like a command that the system would interpret in often unpredictable ways, for unpredictable amounts of times, sometimes echoing for many years, leading to a world filed with unintelligibly convolved trees of recursive realities, mixing and influencing one another in different ways.
Of course, some people stayed near the homeland — the land of the planet on which they evolved and came from. That seemed to be a pretty safe bet. They established an organization dedicated to providing “reality” to the people. If there was anything that could be considered reality, the original world must be it.
Despite this, reality wasn’t what it used to be. These days, they had machines capable of any type of material manipulation. Simply command something to be, and so long as it is agreeable, then it is. It was something hard to live without.
Rarely, people would decide to forgo most of the modern conveniences, and thus developed a different way of being and a different language of life.
Isolation and misunderstanding continued.
This continued to progress, and soon the environment approached catastrophic circumstances. Infinite torture pools of liquid reality formed like whirlpools in a stream, with people getting angrier and more fearful, separating in many ways, disconnecting from many channels; it became darker and began to look a lot like Hell.
The system became very dangerous, fueled by anger, distrust, unawareness, and neglect through escape.
You could stay alone or with a select few and be safe, happy, and comfortable, aside from the screams of confusion and the news of people getting tortured by aggressive dissonances in the now natural environment. Even then, ever present was this discomfort, which for not much of a reason ever really went away. Life became sad and lonely for these people; seeing it from this distance, on the media system, you could see the power of the human spirit, going on, cheering and brave, for all of the good, as you sat there, having already seen it all, remembering an ancient Buddhist prayer, as it helped with solitude, which even itself urges you to join the virtuous and proactive path — to join the war it feels like. It seems like an essential part of consciousness, like an ultimate desire.
Society split into different gradations of reluctance to save the world, but there was a clear trend and compelling fervor that was inescapable by at least nearly everyone.
How long would you stay alone anyway? The war had a confusing chronology, due to different speeds of different realities, and estimating time became an impossible issue. You might miss everything. The living spirit you see is the truth, so it’s winning.
Hope was at the brightest that it had ever been. Just about directly noon above, it was our new space race.
The new sophistication of military and psychological prowess made society look even cooler than it had ever been. There was deep passion, combined with the serious air of caution in the midst of a dangerous and monstrous presence unlike anything the world had ever seen.
Weaponry was unbelievable. Everything was intelligent, surprising, capable, and stunning in demonstration. Like a supernova, shining billions of times brighter than the sun, Hope was impossibly incandescent.
Still, there were the rivers of tears and the funerals of decommissioned persona who had not a desire for a disconnected resurrection. And there were the parties, tolerated, but there was an ongoing tension.
For simplicity, everything was described in radio theory — this was the clear choice for the practical singular language. This is because we needed to explain communication through unknown, evolving, media in a singular theory, methodology, and practice. Radio theory covers all forms of communication. Pen and paper and even Morse code are described in terms of electromagnetism when describing perception. (And radio is just EM4COM.) Since the realities dealt directly with perception, this choice of theory was sufficient.
Thus, everything was described as vibrations, additions, subtractions, convolutions, and differentials. Everyone became a radio station, and as the conclusion had become that reality was in the mind of its beholder, everyone was also a reality and a unique language.
Not only that, everyone was capable of participation with the war, starting from the same sense of perfection and sophistication in ability.
The biggest problem though was the threat of a sudden torturous reality breakdown. The solution to this was to broadcast a line through all of the realities, which established the bases of stability. This line kept up to date with changes in patterns and language and was advised to always keep on and connected in one’s reality, in case of error. These lines could guide a reality and the associated person out of a difficult circumstance.
The key in this war was the calibration of the representation of truth. Communication systems broadcasted highly adaptable tokens, which were used to establish similarity between potentially disparate portrayals of one another and of the world in general by different realities.
The world eventually found a middle-ground, a consistent state of calculated effectiveness, keeping up with the word and the truth as people discover and change, and the war never ended.
…the war never ended.
