The Only Winning Move Is Not To Play- The Sunday Collage

- from the movie, WarGames.

In his book, "A New Earth", Eckhart Tolle talks at great length about the damage that the human ego causes.

Ego is a false sense of self, or who you think you are, created in your mind. This is what you present to the world as you. Of course it is false- but you can't possibly allow the world to see who you really are. Or so you think.

Imagine inheriting some kind of dictatorship such as the Supreme Leader of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. You've done absolutely nothing to earn such a position- but there you are- leading 26 million people around by the nose.

You buy in to the whole illusion. You must be great you tell yourself. The people around you expect great things, your ego convinces you that you must do great deeds, and so you begin all of your anti-American sabre rattling with a giant false sense of self- furthered along by those who surround you.

You kill a few people, including your uncle, aunt, and your brother, because you fear them. You fire missiles to and fro, issue threats, fire a missile over Japan, and then conduct an underground hydrogen bomb blast that appears to be successful. You are trying to convince the world that you are this fearless man that must be taken seriously.

And so it is, this version of the insanity of the planet emerges.  

Your false sense of self is now in direct conflict with other people who are just as unconscious as you are- they have their egos and false sense of self to attend to as well. These are our leaders, our politicians and generals.

Eckhart Tolle revealed all of this insanity in his book, A New Earth. It wasn't exactly proprietary information but I think the way Tolle revealed it was most effective. If you truly comprehend what Tolle writes, then you are left with the intrinsic truth that what he says is true. Because you have done those things so you know they must be true.

I remember reading A New Earth at the rate of 20 pages per day. It was hard for me to digest and comprehend. There would be days where I would read what Tolle had written, realize I was guilty of some ridiculous behavior, and find myself feeling ashamed. Two great benefits of comprehending what Tolle had written. I was no longer unconscious. I realized just how insane I had become over the years. The other great benefit was that the insanity of others becomes glaringly obvious.

I learned a lot over the intervening ten years. Not only is this planet inhabited by billions of unconscious nut jobs, but there is nothing you can do about it. We cannot slow them down. Their journey here apparently does not include a stop at the Port of Consciousness.

There is no intervention for this.

Millions upon millions of people have lost their lives over things as ridiculous as which make believe God to believe in- or which political system is best. The same topics banned from many homes- talk involving politics and religion- are the same things we've been dying over for thousands of years.

You'd think we'd have learned by now.

In the movie WarGames, the computer plays tic-tac-toe by itself until it learns that it is a game if played correctly- there can be no winning outcome. The computer then simulates global missile launches wherein mutual destruction is guaranteed. Like tic-tac-toe, the computer learns that there is no point in playing a game where there can be no winner.

The only winning move is not to play. Could we disengage? Sure. If the United States said "ya know Kim Jung un, we're not going to play. No more war games with South Korea, no sanctions, no threats of war- you just go ahead and do what you want. You are a sovereign state, we're going to let you behave like one.

Is that going to happen? Not a chance. Because the egos on our team are every bit as big as Kim's.

In a way, it really might be a zombie apocalypse. Their unconscious egos versus ours.

So sit back, relax, and watch this latest episode of uncontrolled egos playing out. No need to worry about it, there is nothing you can do. It's not like Kim or Don are going to grab Tolle's book and come to their senses.

Just remember that Kim Jung un had his uncle, aunt, and brother killed. What's the worst thing that could happen with a psychopath who finds nothing wrong with killing his own family?

I gotta run now, I've been looking at generators and nitrogen packed foods. I think UPS is at the door...

I think North Korea is nothing but a staged controlled opposition boogie man, I smell several green screens in his past present and future...… Be very very scared…

Fear mongering is the Strategy of Tension. When it is mirrored from MSM to alternative “conspiracy sites” we should take notice. Aye?

Not only is everyone hyperventilating over the latest boogie man, but they are freaking out about an impending WWIII.

Do you really think that the apex of the pyramid of power, the central bankers, basking in unlimited power are going to watch on helplessly as their realm is obliterated in a Nuclear Armageddon?

Toasted real estate no more access to vast resources under their control?


Be-lie-eve what you will.. All The Worlds a stage and the show must go on…

"The IBBC is a bank. Their objective isn't to control the conflict, it's to control the debt that the conflict produces. You see, the real value of a conflict, the true value, is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt, you control everything. You find this upsetting, yes? But this is the very essence of the banking industry, to make us all, whether we be nations or individuals, slaves to debt."---The International

I enjoyed tolles The power of now. I will have to give a new earth a read/ or listen on audible.

Thanks for stopping by you two. I loved power of now. It was where I learned that all bad thoughts and anxiety come from the past and the future. That was my big takeaway...Irish.

I tend to agree with you as always CP. I am really not too worried. The real powers will never let the pretend powers get too out of control- we need a new Hitler every 4th turning or so, don't we?

“The study of “ambulatory” psychopaths – what we call “The Garden Variety Psychopath” – has, however, hardly begun. Very little is known about subcriminal psychopathy. However, some researchers have begun to seriously consider the idea that it is important to study psychopathy not as an artificial clinical category but as a general personality trait in the community at large. In other words, psychopathy is being recognized as a more or less a different type of human.
One very interesting aspect of the psychopath is his “hidden life” that is sometimes not too well hidden. It seems that the psychopath has a regular need to take a “vacation into filth and degradation” the same way normal people may take a vacation to a resort where they enjoy beautiful surroundings and culture. To get a full feeling for this strange “need” of the psychopath – a need that seems to be evidence that “acting human” is very stressful to the psychopath – read more of The Mask of Sanity, chapters 25 and 26.”
