93% of Americans have glyphosate in their urine. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup--can you spell CANCER?

A way to go about "letting go" of the ego is to become aware of your ego-driven reactions and desires as they arise. Awareness--step one. Step two--turn your focus off of your ego reaction and look for the bigger picture, the one that allows space for the other's needs and the needs of the universe/God's will. Once you get a bigger perspective you can see that your ego is just one part of the whole equation. From there it is more possible to accommodate others' needs.

I'm reposting as a comment a good private email and my reply. Here it is:

What an incredible read in that blog post! The distinction between meme bundles held between Left and Right is important in it's variety as it is important in the shared meme's. I truly enjoy reading your writing as it pushes me to slow down and truly absorb the meaning. Also, your vocabulary commands respect!! :) I love it!!

I couldn't help but draw parallels to Plato's Cave essay. I feel as though the shared meme bundles in your blog are very dependent on the light in which they are viewed. As the shadows bounced off the walls and became the only "lightened" reality for the chained and enslaved, the sunlight of enlightenment upon exiting the cave became the light in which the shared meme bundles showed their differences. Realizing that in the cave the shadows were NOT reality, the man returns to tell the others of his discovery. Their institution was closed off by then (or was it always)? In other words, it seems the source of light (the light from the fire or the light from enlightenment) can change the boarders of institutions either more open or more closed depending ...

What do you think? I do apologize I haven't read cover to cover your book yet so if you have covered this before, feel free to share a link instead of restating (typing?) what has already been stated (typed)?

:) Hope this email finds you well. And again, excellent blog post! I will definitely be sharing it among my friends and colleges.

Here's my reply:

Thanks for your comments. If you have my book,you will enjoy skipping to Ch. 3, A Simple Model of Memes.

As to Plato's cave... I agree with the scenario you have painted inside the cave. Exiting the cave, however, dispels differences, it does not reveal their differences. In my thinking, the light outside the cave causes the enlightened to realize there are no differences after all. The apparent differences inside the cave are the result of shadows cast by ignorance onto darkness. To carry the analogy outward, Plato's light comes from a single source, underscoring the unity of sun.

In terms of this political article, it seems so obvious to me that it's all shadows, and into those shadows people are projecting their most basic fears. This is Jungian archetypal kind of stuff. If these people could step out of the cave, they'd all be hugging each other and crying with relief to discover they all really want the same exact peace and security for themselves and their families without losing identity or liberty in the process.

The Simple Explanation theory suggests that the "universal unit of consciousness" carries all of the information that manifests our time/space continuum. In today's vernacular, you can think of the universal unit of consciousness as the primal algorithm of this particular set of laws that govern our universe. Some people call that God. Some people think it all can be boiled down to math and science. That's what the Simple Explanation book is about.

And now it is April 3, 2017. I would have to say the early optimism expressed in this article has not yet panned out. I suspect my refusal to monetize the site somehow contributes to the low subscription rates. I still have only 31 followers, and at least one of them is dead. I have a strong sense that the highest months were the result of Russian hacking. Last week this very article received 29 hits in one day. Really? Obviously we're being used as a boomerang to slingshot a hack. At least they're polite about it.

Reprint from author's preface to 2nd edition. A good introduction to the Simple Explanation theory of everything.

Hi Toddster2012. Thanks for leaving a comment. Yes, loving and also doing your part to help your local collective. See my "Golden Rule" articles...

I almost didn't see your comment because suddenly Google doesn't give me my blogs comments anymore. And they've removed the comments tab from the blog's dashboard. I wonder what gives?
