6. Ideology/motivation
Society has become “split” in the 20th/21st century; we’re socially
schizophrenic
What we discover is not something we don’t know, it’s something
that we’ve chosen to not think about learning
Anxiety is the feeling that arises self-defensively when you’re about
to “know” something you haven’t thought, and when you’ve
thought it, it will become something in relation to who you are
There’s a difference between knowing, thinking, doing, and being
It’s possible to know, think, do, and be, and still not UNDERSTAND
(because the other four create appearances)
What we did know was that there was some “divine God” who was
Right, so we didn’t HAVE to know
Soul: connects ourselves to the Divine Rightness seen as the part
of us that can be corrupted or purified
Transcendental certitude: what we understand is what is right and
correct
o Loss: something above and beyond this Earth is undeniably
right, and can be accessed by enough meditation etc
When you have a loss of transcendental certitude, you have a loss
of faith, a loss of a belief system, a lack of meaning in life
o This loss does not eliminate the necessity to believe
o We have to believe to move
What a Nike shoe represents is more than it appears to be (e.g.
represents child labour even though its just a shoe) this relates
directly to faith, which represents more than it just is; represents a
feeling of transcendental certitude
The sacred is a paradox: it’s both what it is, and more
o You can destroy what it is, but you can’t destroy what it
represents
Dorian Gray removes his soul so that he can no longer register
regret
A church is sacred, a religion is sacred, but what do in the NAME of
religion, can be murderous (we have a church, but what’s it made
of? church made of firearms)
