Ideas are dangerous (First Sketch)

June 26, 2013

Where does this notion come from

this feeling within that wants us to be special

to be different and other than what we

humans, are? We are all one beings

constantly fighting each other and ourselves

showing our flairs and cherishing our foibles.

Is it our biology? Our drive to procreate,

show our peacock feathers? To attract

the opposite sex? Or for those that cannot have children,

perhaps just to have success and explosions of positive feelings?

Isn’t it selfish? Are we not all one? Take a step back

see ourselves and how we are all the same.

We don’t like it. Our pre-prehistoric urges

stand out – To be the one, the leader, the top ape

on the highest branch, the one to spread our seed

or to have the seed spread in us, tricks us.

But if I say that we are all the same,

that is an affront to individuality.

To independence and choice.

To these sacred notions of freedom.

They have a life of themselves. A sort of

philosophical evolution and will to survive.

We give these ideas life, but do they come from us?

They are like bacteria in our minds

catching and spreading. Whether they are wrong or right,

that is just another one of their tricks

as there are no ultimates. In the blackness of space

before and after us, nothing exists. But we,

we are fertile ground for ideas in the cosmic winds

to plant and grow and like any life, their only purpose

is to grow and not die and they will do anything to survive

selling death, wealth, treachery, independence;

any sales pitch to make us fight for them.

To enslave us to their plow and drag out the troughs.

The smartest are the most susceptible,

the most verdant of soil. For although weak

this way they may dominate the strong.

These seeds of thought are planted

in their rich dark abundance of possibility

for these hosts and intellectuals propagate their ideas

with much more conviction than those

that just be. For those that do not care so much for ideas.

Soon enough their indifference will end them.

They will be embroiled by the fight of these philosophies.

They will be infected and forced to decide what is wrong and right

better and worse, what you can and can’t.

They make us organise them into books of thought,

make political parties based on these thoughts,

enlist those who are ignorant to destroy the land

to build more houses to breed more believers

and when an idea will not spread through its form alone

it will enlist us to make armies to hammer opposition

still holding onto the original idea as sacred

but warping it into something complex and confusing

so that even if we can question it, it will be beyond us.

Everyone but those who know the truth.

So what can we do is not think, but destroy all ideas.

All selfishness. All organisation. Revert to our true selves.

Live free of ideas and only hold feelings.

And what is the truth? Well let me tell you…
