14 – A form of mental colonialism controls our worldview …

Myths are created by the human mind when faced with the unknown. But these same myths can be turned into destructive fallacies when used to control the way we understand our world, as is the case with the myths listed below:

The myth that humankind has been personally created, as we are today, by the imagined idols of ancient men.

The myth that unconditional obedience to the creeds of men in cloaks will be rewarded in “Heaven”.

The myth that Nature has been created for the benefit of man, and that man can exist without Nature.

The myth that Nature is mechanical and purposeless.

The myth that we can obliterate the truth of our simian ancestry by contriving Evolution into “might makes right”.

The myth that Success is a measure of how much we possess and how much we consume.

The myth that we can overwhelm the environment that gives us life without affecting the way we exist, or even if we will continue to exist.

These destructive fallacies have been turned into forms of mental colonialism to manipulate the way we understand ourselves; they distort the impact we make on the planet; they obliterate our capacity to think rationally and acknowledge self-evident and irrefutable facts.

Some of the irrefutable facts these myths obliterate are:

The fact that we are self-regulating, self-generating, self-reflective organic systems grown out of an ovum and a sperm into dynamic components of an evolving species.

The fact that we are fragile organic creatures totally contingent on a constant and balanced intake and release of energy sources … the same sources we are consuming and overwhelming.

The fact that it is due to the nurturing environment of a planet deep in the vastness of the Universe, that we have evolved the awareness of our own awareness and the capacity to conceptualize the Universe within which we exist.

The fact that we belong to a mammalian species with an insatiable and irrepressible sexual appetite – it took us about 10.000 years to reach a count of 1 billion, then about 160 years to reach 3 billion, then about 40 years to reach 6 billion … and counting!!!

The fact that although we are self-reflective, visionary and pregnant with the capacity to affect our destiny, we are also atoms, molecules, blood, guts, instincts, dependent on the mandates of our internal and external environments.

But we are brainwashed by the destructive myths of our own creation and have been made afraid to question their irrationality, thus irrefutable facts like the ones mentioned above are not even given our consideration.

For hundreds … thousands of years … we have obediently accepted to be ruled by the impaired notions of our myths with horrific consequences (wars, hate, holocausts, slaughter, rape, extinction, massacres, genocide), yet our impact on the environment has not been grave, until our exponential growth has brought us to a moment in our evolution when continuing to promote a worldview based on destructive fallacies will result in our extinction.

To understand what we truly are is critical to our survival. Shouldn’t we start talking about it?
