This landed in my e-mail from “Big Think” Edge yesterday. Oooooo, for me, them’s fightin’ words.
It’s all over her face!
“I know how to calculate the situation and I win. Because I play the game and have money that means I’m right.”
Well, par for the course given most people don’t read or know history or pay any real attention to science. There about a million artists and scientists who have proved her wrong through their work and their lives. This marketing in my email mimics everyone else in our society. “Look at THIS person! Maybe they’ve got some advice for you. LISTEN TO THEM! They’re successful. If you do what THEY do and say, you can be successful too.”
This is terrible advice, based on incorrect, politically correct assumptions. Politically correct in that uber-rational, alpha male, reductionist, parsing, cold, hard facts, calculations devoid of life will kill us all quicker and get us off this damn rock. Nice! More for them when we’re all gone. No aesthetic, no feeling, no sense of time or space, nothing to do with nature, procreation or the feminine. Their way is SUPERIOR to intuition. That’s the position of the pedophile Catholic Church and the U.S. Federal Government under Trump too. They’re misogynist criminals.
Well, the rational mind is NOT rational without both reason and intuition; female and male and about a million scientists who’ve studied the issue agree with me. Granted, maybe she has some kind of mathematical mind that can calculate the cards in a poker match. Then she makes all kinds of money winning games. That doesn’t prove anything about intuition. That is only a testament to how SHE works her game. That’s great! But don’t slam intuition like everyone else on the planet is LIKE YOU or should be!
Individuals with mind and heart differences are so inconvenient, aren’t they? The diversification in nature is a never ending thorn in our side. That means you can’t control people very well. So no matter how much tech, TV, and politics try to program people’s minds, some damn artist, scientist or someone that thinks creatively comes along with this revolutionary, mind-blowing work that takes everyone’s attention and RUINS ALL THE FUCKING BRAINWASHING! What a drag.
My entire blog is full of posts that give documentation about the efficacy and transcendence of intuition coupled with reason. I’m not going to repeat all of it here. You need both to have a superior mind and that’s a fact. Note that I’m not saying anyone will listen to you, like you, or respect you. There’s that. But that’s only a problem if you care what they think.
