Since death is one idea that has no history except as an idea and not a reality any of us have experienced, it is the most frightening idea there is and also quite simple. It is the ultimate unknown. It has always haunted human beings, whether consciously or unconsciously. It lies at the root of war, violence, religion, art, love, and civilization. The good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly, why we like to win and not lose, pass and not fail, "pass on" and not die. It is so funny and so sad. We would be lost without it, even when we feel lost when thinking about it. And it is fundamental for understanding the action and reaction to Covid-19.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Societies have always been people banded together in the face of death. And since people are not just physical beings but symbolic creatures who can think and imagine the past and the future, societies are necessarily mythic symbol systems whose job is not only to protect people physically, but symbolically as well. Sometimes, however, the protection is a protection racket with racketeers holding people hostage to fabricated fears that keep them locked in a living-death.

Thus death, this most potent imaginative idea and reality that doesn't exist except as a mystery about which anything we say is speculation, can be used for good and evil, depending on who controls society. Death is the great fear, the human haunting that hangs by a thread over life like the sword of Damocles.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧In 1944 in a newspaper column, George Orwell made an astute remark:

"There is little doubt that the modern cult of power worship is bound up with the modern man's feeling that life here and now is the only life there is. If death ends everything, it becomes much harder to believe that you can be in the right even if you are defeated". I would say that the decay in the belief in personal immortality has been as important as the rise of machine civilization."

Beliefs, of course, like "personal immortality" and all others, such as the recent rise in the belief in atheism, which is as much a belief as belief in God, are, partially at least, relative to time and place, and develop out of social storytelling. The "hard facts" on which many feel their lives and security rest are themselves dependent upon the symbols which give them legitimacy. Reality is indeed precarious with society suspended by a web of myths and symbols. It is through cultural and social symbol systems that society's meaning is transmitted to individuals, and it is within the symbol systems that the control and release of action resides. In today's electronic mass media world, those who control the mass media that control the narrative flow and the storytelling, control the majority's beliefs and actions.

Since society is held together by this myth system the beliefs and values people live for and live by that sustains it, societies have always had to offer symbolic "answers" to death. For without a meaningful symbolic for coming to terms with death, human action would be stymied and people would be reduced to what the psychiatrist Allan Wheelis termed "intense, preoccupying yearning." Today we can hear such yearning everywhere.

Shortly after Orwell made his prescient comment in The Tribune, 幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧 nuclear weapons were developed and used by the United States to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese civilians. With those weapons and their use, the ages-old symbolic narrative of life and death was transformed in a flash. "The significance of the possibility of nuclear death is that it radically affects the meaning of death, of immortality, of life itself," wrote Hans Morgenthau. The traditional symbolic sources that once served to allow humans to transcend death were fundamentally undercut, and the search for new modes of death transcendence was carried on beneath the portentous covering of the nuclear umbrella. A qualitative transformation in the meaning of human existence was thus brought about as humans, who had the weapons, replaced the belief in God as the holder of the power over life and death, since nuclear war could result in the extinction of human life, leaving no one left to die.

This is our world today, and it is where the Covid-19 story takes place. A world not just of nuclear fear, but a host of other fears constantly inflamed by the mass media that hypnotize people through the conjuring of death-fear.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧In his great work on group psychology, Freud showed us how it was not just mental contagion and the herd instinct that got people to join in group behavior. People could be induced to become little children and obey their leaders because they have "an extreme passion for authority." When leaders speak, the children hear the inner voices of their parents telling them to be careful, be very careful, the bogeyman is everywhere, so listen and obey. Freud, the Jewish atheist, and Dostoevsky, the Russian Orthodox Christian, were in agreement about people's desire to give up their freedom to authority figures who would allegedly shelter them within their warm embrace.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧The easiest way to do this is to convince people that death is stalking them, for the bogeyman is always death in one form or another.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧It works to get people to support the terrifying sadism of wars against fabricated "others," who are always portrayed as aliens who are out to kill the good people.

It works to get people to give up their freedoms out of fear of "terrorists," who are said to slide and hide in the interstices of everyday life, ready to pounce and kill at any moment.

And it works to get people to obey orders to protect themselves from terrifying viruses that are lying in wait everywhere to strike them dead.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Here are a few thoughts about death, none are original:

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Before we were born we were dead.

How long you live has nothing to do with how long you will be dead.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Nobody gets out of here alive.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧"... miracle, mystery, and authority usually defeat evidence and simple logic. Fear of death and free thought scare children."

Fear is a limbic response that short-circuits the thinking brain and induces its victims to flail around in mindless panic.

People who are in control of their own emotions do not let this happen to ourselves. You know who you are. You do not collapse in hard situations. You stand there and deal with them, hard though it may be to remain calm and rational. Self-controlled people can still see and think clearly while "the herd" has been stampeded into emotional overdrive.

What is hard to stomach is seeing how easy it is to make the masses of people - and their governments - believe and do anything you want them to believe and do, simply by constructing a scary narrative and blasting it from TV screens and newspaper headlines non-stop 24/7 for weeks on end.

The strategy is problem - reaction - solution.

Problem: Scary creatures are going to get us. Reaction: Run! Solution: The only path available to run is up the chute into the truck and off to the slaughterhouse.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Problem: Pandemic!!! Reaction: Mindless fear and panic. Solution: Shut down the economy, destroy people financially, and don't stop the pain until they all beg you to inject them with the Vaccine!!! that will save them all from the Pandemic!!!

It's really pathetic - in the sympathetic sense of that word, toward the victims - how easy it is to pull off this kind of blatantly transparent "miracle, mystery and authority" con job on a vast scale.

Does the sun still show up mornings on the slope easterly in the Rockies? So dreary here with clouds & rain. Snow and wind, too, all day long yesterday. They tell us Spring comes

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧every year still, though. Maybe at mile high altitudes, we're only 400 ft here, Belfast.

I question a lot. How many labs besides in China were researching this virus and it's related strains. Has any research in China or elsewhere been done on if certain Races of People are more immune to some strains than other races?

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Why is China against a international investigation besides the fact that their system is very secretive? Also I hope the Senate has a lot of Questions for Dr. Fauci and what he knows that he hasn't said yet.

Jim -

The research on a virus very much like COVID19, if not the virus itself, was conducted in Wuhan in cooperation with University of North Carolina, under a contract funded by Fauci's agency, the NIAID.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧You begin with a statement that death is "not a reality any of us have experienced".

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Thousands of people have experienced death and reported their experiences. They were medically restored to life after a period of time when their brains were flatlined. We have much to learn from their stories.

幸运飞艇有哪些选号技巧Thanks, Josh. I don't think they were dead, nor do I think doctors can bring the dead back to life. Brain flat-lining is a medical definition that medicine says means a person is dead, therefore - ipso facto - if the person "revives" the doctors raised them from the dead. Doctors the equal God.
