We can look back at history and see patterns and trends. Theoretically, if we look at past
behavior, it should be possible to distinguish, and change, tendencies that are detrimental
for individual as well as common good. This does not happen. Why? Why is history doomed
to repeat itself? Why do we seem to be unable to learn from it?
The reality we know is not solid, is ever changing. The microcosm reflects the macrocosm.
Uncertainty is scalable...from subatomic, wave vs. particle uncertainty, to uncertainty that
puts a black man into the White House....something no one would have bet on two years ago.
One could document the steps leading to Obama's victory...but the best and simplest
explanation for that victory is simply that the time was right. In other words, no one
really knows how Obama became president. The shimmering illusion of his phenomena
resonated with enough other shimmering phenomena to create a sympathetic chord
vibration that caused enough entities to manipulate machines in such way that it
was perceived that Obama had enough resonance to be declared the next president...seems to
be one vague explanation. A laundry list of reasons why his campaign was more effective than McCains doesn't explain the phenomena. It's like pointing to musical notes on paper as an explanation of sound. Symbols are never the "thing-in-itself". "Whatever this is, it's not a table."
The way we see affects perception. What we see is affected by the way we see. The possibility of being burned as a witch these days is slim because no one sees witches anymore. A ragged man, talking to himself, wandering the streets of New York is seen as different than that man in
a small village in Peru. The best place to hide something is in plain view, because it takes away the stigma of being hidden. People believe lies because they are spoken as if they were the truth, by entities that project a shimmering trustworthy quality...they believe their own lies.
History repeats itself because the same old lies are touted as something new by the same types of entities that always seek power.
