STOMPING ON THE BUNNIES OF YOUR SELF WORTH
(important if your self worth can tolerate it)
—“Religion is what you do every day . doctrine and dogma are your expressions of your mental interpretations of your belief system.”— Ken Duggan
Well, again,that’s a falsehood.
A religion consists of a false presumption or more, a false promise or more, a set of narratives within those falsehoods, a set of rituals that demonstrate your investments in them, and a group strategy produced by all of the above.
One can theorize (science and history), philosophize (reason and ideals), or fictionalize (theology and myths).
A scientist doesn’t lie about that distinction. Both philosophers and theologians do.
The reason you resort to religion is because the painful truth of your market value to others is too low to rely on philosophy (reason and ideals) or science science and the real).
This illusion of self worth, social worth, market worth, is the ‘payment’ you receive in the form of mindfulness, in exchange for investing in training your intuition to calculate in falsehoods.
Because in reality – few of us have much worth other than that we do no harm. And the benefits of the market created by doing no harm exist for us despite the fact that we have little or no value other than doing no harm.
If that does not crush your ego, I don’t know what will.
But that is the undeniable, painful, undesirable truth.
Most people are dead weight on Mankind and The Planet, and the Universe.
