(Mestre POP, a student of Rational Culture, Florianópolis, SC- BRAZIL)
The greatest challenge to be achieved by humanity in the fields of religion, sciences and politics, in order to overcome the main obstacles, is the duality. If the opposed notions as to what is right and wrong proceeds, the human battle will always continue. The way I see it, those who are partisans in the right will always defend the concepts inherent to that political view, whereas the same is also true for those in the left.
These arguments are substantive for our comprehension on how the ideologic views are structured and, as a consequence, boost up people to march in defense of this or that point of view. The same phenomenon is observed in religion.
At this very moment, in the middle of 2013, manifestations are taking place in Brazil with the right looking for strategic advancements to demoralize politically those who are on the left and possess the central power. There is, so to speak, a battle between them involving anarchists, fascists, nazists, reformists, liberals and conservatives.
There is, though, the dangers of a coup d’etat! For, those who are in power will defend their position; however there are also those who has never been in power and want to take their chances, and the old power who longs for a coming back.
This sea of ideas hovering over everything and everyone is what makes this world into an unsolvable puzzle! It is the thought which divides us, sealing us in castes, groups, tribes, in the minority or majority, where people will always fight for what they believe represent their freedom and objectives.
Not only that but the world is largely affected by egocentrism, which prevails even inside these sealed groups; the misunderstandings are widespread. The psycho-social, economic, ethnical or political problems surpass all intellectual conditions of man, making humanity into a hostage to so many dillemas.
The Rational Culture on which I base myself will clarify the origin of all human conflicts, showing that it is due to the ignorance about the Universal Laws and the real essence of thought and imagination.
Only in the Rational Culture you will know why the humans are thinkers. René Descartes stated that thinking assured to the thinker his psychological existence: ”Cogito Ergo sum”, which means “I think so I am”. Nevertheless thought never clarified to us why we exist.
We know from Theology that our Origin derives from the Divine Nature, but it never accounted for the fact why we are free thinkers or captive thinkers. As thinkers we have a very short view of the reality which is above our capacity of thinking or imagining. All we can do is create hypothesis and, inevitably, we will fall in contradiction with those who bear a different view to ours.
Man is at the crossroads for bearing such weak knowledge about the reality, despite the fact that he considers himself as a great sage, who will try to disclose the mistery of a universe he cannot make out.
In the need of equating and solving the human problems and conflicts, man created organs such as the United Nations, which is incapable to resolve anything objectively. The truth is that all these conflicts and problems exist primarily inside ourselves.
In this way, humanity needs to surpass its fake knowledge, which is feeble to provide any answer or solution to the world dillemas.
Nonetheless, instead of accepting that and reformulating his vision of the world, man still poses as a bearer of great knowledge and wisdom.
This is the biggest dillema.
The continuation of these reflections and analysis are in the books of RATIONAL CULTURE.
