I don’t understand astrology, and I don’t care to – all the charts and whatnot. My brain is crammed as is and there is so much else to learn about. I used to read on all these different things that supposedly set me apart as a sagittarius that were mildly entertaining but not compelling enough to study in depth. I don’t mean to disparage anyone who is into it because it is an interpretation of truth that’s been held from us regarding our place in the world as humans. “Nature” under ruling classes has been presented as this kind of automatic earth we arrived on, somehow, that we stand apart from which is of course the opposite of truth. It’s a huge lie that takes a lot of work to maintain.
What I can’t suffer any longer from anyone no matter how much I might like them otherwise is this idea that every single action is held up by the moon and stars on the command of the ruling class coming from seeming dissidents who’ve had their frequencies disrupted by Robert Anton Wilson and the like. The essence of these arguments is that every newsworthy event is planned to coincide (but did it really?) with the blah blah full moon on the fifth Wednesday of the second quarter commemorating the election of Pope Francis foretold a century before the event. And so this means everything is fake and our “worldly concerns” like politics and legal matters that we can actually affect should be compartmentalized, filed away and forgotten in the recesses of our minds while we try to make sense of 3D posters or something.
I was really turned off by someone like this over the course of the Alex Murdaugh trial. We both followed it but he kept proposing these ideas that since all these other events were occurring at the same time (as they always do, no?), it was a meaningless exercise, or that is was built up so much by the media it was meaningless. And it really annoyed me, I kept trying to steer our exchanges to something a little more real – yeah the media is running away with it because one of their reasons for existence is to exploit organic human action for its (the ruling class’s) advantage; and most importantly, that the concerted pleb/proletarian action that led to the the prosecution of this case in the first place was used to the advantage of regional politicians as it relates to South Carolina’s position as “first in the south” that contributes to the larger arena of national politics.
Isn’t that interesting enough? And what else is there? Why didn’t the AG’s office push harder on the quantity of drugs Murdaugh was consistently in possession of? What was their true role in keeping this so personalized and focused on Murdaugh the individual? And because it happened as we emerged from rough times and an uncertain winter, guided by the sun, stars, moon, axis, rotation, etc etc – wow, that is so much more interesting to me than perfectly deciphering the symbols appropriated by a bunch of perverts who’ve drawn from virtually all traditions on earth to convince and dazzle, to obscure these truths from those they oppress and rule over.
