According to Syntalism, man was banished from Paradise for humane reasons, because Paradise and reason are incompatible. In Paradise, the mind degrades and dies. The mind is that which overcomes problems and obstacles. In conditions of complete relaxation, higher fungi degrade and turn into single-celled fungi, a typical example of this is yeast.
Let's be honest, people settled around the world and evolved not from a good life, but rather from despair. The question was: either progress and evolution, or death. The good life only degrades people.
War and conflict are the same engine of progress as competition, the mother of the economy. Just as the economy will die and degrade without competition, so human civilization will degrade without conflict.
Parents love their children, even if they beat them and don't allow them to do anything. So is God. The task of God is to make a God out of a person, and not allow it to degrade into a single-celled one.
Perfection leads to unity, because perfection is not possible in everything at once. You can choose one or more things and become perfect at it. Everything else will automatically degrade and a vulnerability will arise. The perfect need to unite, because they are very weak and vulnerable when they are alone.
If you draw love only from the outside world, a person will atrophy his own love, and he will turn into a typical neurotic idealist, empty as a pitcher, full of fear and dependent on external love, on someone else's opinion, outwardly smiling and kind, but inside rotten and rotten.
You should not just choose the easy, but make the heavy easy. It is said, " Love your enemy and he will become a friend." If you just do a lung, you will weaken and degrade. Moreover, you are weak and helpless, surrounded on all sides, squeezed by enemies, and you will perish from fear.
Love or fear gives form to a person's life, losing love, losing fear... a person will lose form, morally decompose and lose the meaning of life. Such meanings of life as the search for pleasure or serenity will quickly turn a person into a yeast mushroom.
The dependent person is automatically degraded. Weakness breeds fear, laziness, illusions, and pain. This state of Affairs provokes in the dominant active personality a sense of duty and a desire to take care of the weak.
Truth (absolute) this is a kind of integrity that has reached a critical mass and divided itself into an infinite number of new forms. It is impossible to know the truth, because the truth is the whole real world, which is infinite, because the division of the absolute can take place indefinitely. In fact, what you call the evolution of the system is the continuing degradation and disintegration of the system from a simple and unified absolute to some sophisticated and very complex forms.
Social animals are made so that they reckon more on the information from the fellow individuals. ... Strong, big and influential neighbors take away from the weaker individuals their own ability to think and make decisions.
I noticed that, I'm an ideological materialist - living by miracles… My whole life is a sheer miracle… I don't even know how I live… Just while I'm useful - it's all to me, all for me, but as soon as I stop and reach the ceiling limit, the miracle stops at once… and I have to break the ceiling and climb up to the next floor…
So how many floors are there left above? How long will I be able to move forward?
Miracles make one excited… Decades of miracles made the ability to live without them atrophied, to live simply…
Yes, that's the very situation when a stop would mean death…
The technology of an electronic assistant based on artificial intelligence, which will help human to remember information and suggest something, will most likely lead to total degradation of the human brain, which will quickly destroy humanity. Now, when it`s not necessary to think, the brains will be reduced even more and human will turn into an insect. The assistant will manage human through a radio channel, and human, as it befits an ant, will crawl and collect energy, dragging it in the anthill. The more energy the ant gets, the happier it will be.
Turning the society from the three-class one into the two-class one is degradation, as three-phase systems are more energy-efficient than two-phase ones. Moreover, class contradictions were an important source of progress, if they are reduced, the society will start degrading. Furthermore, when the elites replace the lower classes by robots and artificial intelligence systems, the issue of what to do with the majority of people will arise.
The answer will be evident – to immerse them into illusive dream to make them perish in sweet pleasures, like a fly in the syrup. This decision will turn all the social elevators and ladders off. The renewal of blood and thought among elites will stop. That is, interclass motion will disappear along with classes. And motion, as we remember, was the basis of life and an energy access mechanism. Anyway, everything will end and perish rather quickly. In a couple of thousands years the last God alive will create a new Universe and, having erased his memory, will self-destroy.
A wonderful occupational stupidity, great underqualification and a simple amazing universal human poverty of intellect... all of the mentioned makes our world unique and unpredictable. If there were no problems or no stupidity, smart people would get deprived of the reasons to apply their mental abilities and would degenerate so that the world would lapse back into stone age...
Passive receipt of information - such as reading, listening, video-must be mixed with the acts of creating information - it is necessary to write, speak, build, create and train, practicing practical skills. The best proportion, of course, 50 to 50%, and any deviation from the balance leads only to degradation and decline.
A person who lives a smooth easy life quickly gets silly and dumb. A new fresh silly thing lets this person make new personal problems and difficulties that will surely make this person stronger and better while eradicating the silliness out of this person. The circle gets closed. It only takes waiting for a while to let a new silly thing appear.
The rise and fall of humankind are two different phenomena.
1% of people evolve and become «Gods». 99% evolve and "turn into bees, ants, aphides, wasps, worms and flies»...
At first it will cause a rise but in time, Gods who don't face difficulties and competition, will fall. The rise will end...and a long night will come. Later, in a million years, there will be a new rise and a new spiral turn.
Humor, jokes and fun bring pleasure, of course. That's good. They are especially relevant when things are bad and they help to live in our complicated world.
But I've noticed that people who abuse it unnecessarily start to look like idiots for some reason. Idiotic joy, idiotic fun, constant idiotic jokes - these people are clearly at the last stage of degradation, they clearly need to change something in themselves.
I've noticed that once I get some fear within myself, many things go wrong and misfortunes follow me. As fear is like a smell that keeps good luck away from its owner. Fear is a bird of ill omen. And in order to bring good luck back and be aimed at victory, the first thing to be done is to overcome fears.
There are two opposite forces within every person: the appetite for rest and the appetite for action. In fact, the appetite for action is craving for use and order, beauty and perfection. While the appetite for rest resembles solitude, death, space… But space is chaos.
That's why, logically, it can be supposed that the appetite for rest should end with chaos and destruction and turning into «nothing». Slowly at first and faster later. But we know one more thing: chaos is a place for novelty. Hence, it's better to plunge into the peaceful «nothing» for new ideas. But moderation is important here. As being in «nothing» for too long can destroy personality.
Harmonious action-rest schedule is the perfect variant that one should be aimed at.
Sinfulness is attractive as it resembles chaos. And chaos is novelty. Everyone who lives in the world of order and who is close to perfection, also needs novelty and becomes attracted to sins. Thus, some people think that anything disturbing the order is awfully attractive and new. But it's not a matter of the struggle between good and evil. It just proves that there's no order without chaos or perfection without novelty... As everything is like a two-faced Janus. Everything is well-balanced and disturbing the balance leads to total degradation of mankind.
Don't idealize anything. According to the law of balance, anything perfect should be compensated by degradation at something else. Thus, something perfect usually hides some disgusting fault. Such is life.
The sententiosity about how one should work and go all out, is really harmful in itself. As doing things this way will lead to a person's fatigue and degradation. What's more, finally it will significantly slow down a person's efficiency. Spending 20% of time and efforts on work is the best variant as the remaining time and efforts should be spent on self-development, rest and sport.
Human degradation is profitable to them. In time of a crisis of overproduction, human growth and fruit bearing should be restrained. The world needs caterpillars, parasites and the mold of sin to eat all the extra bits.
