Consequences of Worldview

Researcher Mark Passio claims that worldview poisoning is one of the big guns of (soft) mind control, making people give up on the world, others and themselves and often making them complicit in the toxic and nefarious agendas of genuinely wicked persons of power who tend to be masters at manipulating mass perception and therefore mass action.

My argument in this post is that a worldview that contributes to a feeling of being under constant threat, e.g. one that takes the view that certain demographics or government itself are out to get one, can and does sometimes lead to desperate and/or violent action. 

Information leads to action (see post Thinking v Opining) and it is a natural, animalistic response to threats, whether only perceived or actually real, to engage in fight or in flight by the mere play of bodily chemical activity. 

Thus, if one is of the view often promoted by the media that one's country is being flooded left, right and centre by immigrant populations, with all the threat to one's identity and livelihood this could potentially cause, then one might start engaging in violent and abusive conduct, if only for reasons of perceived self-defence. 

By contrast, people who have a relatively jaunty, temperate worldview - perhaps due to a quantum of privilege and peace in their lives - will be a lot less likely to fall into violent, desperate action simply because their happy worldview will not cause them to feel threatened in their mind-body complex and therefore as needing to fight or to flee.

The lesson to be learned from this is that it is paramount to monitor one's worldview with care if a dark worldview should cause us to harm others (fight) or retreat into ourselves and hide from the world (flight) with the attending risks in the latter case of indigence and suicide.

The converse also holds, i.e. whenever one feels under threat or is prey to a stress reaction one's worldview will possibly take a dip leading to the vicious cycles of

dark worldview > stress > dark worldview = fight or flight


stress > dark worldview > stress = fight or flight

as opposed to the virtuous circles of

positive worldview > absence of stress > positive worldview = happiness


absence of stress > positive worldview > absence of stress = happiness

In conclusion, one's level of serenity will impact on one's worldview and in turn one's worldview will also impact on one's level of serenity. Thus it is advisable to keep one's thoughts in good order so as to be spared the throes of emotional turbulence - thoughts and emotions being mutually reinforcing though not identical agents - and its potential negative consequences for one's actions. 

Let it immediately be said, however, that a dark worldview does not necessarily lead to a stress reaction, especially if one has faith in oneself and is otherwise of a temperate disposition, and stress reaction does not always result in a poisoned worldview if one does not universalise and project one's emotional self onto the world - which can admittedly be hard to do at times.

This brings me back to the basic polarity that affects all of human existence: love and fear. A worldview rooted in fear will shut consciousness down and lead to negative manifestations for one's own being and the world itself whereas a worldview rooted in love which expands consciousness will lead to positive manifestations for oneself and for others.

People as Information

Just as food and sensory data constitute information for the brain/body to decode, whether it be the nutritive elements of a carrot or the words and picture of this blog post, it could be argued that people are information, i.e. in-form us, i.e. form us from within. 

Indeed any person in his or her appearance, smell, gestures, spoken words, habits, personality, sensory and emotional traits is a constant source of information for us to interpret and decode so to speak. This is sometimes called a person's 'vibe', i.e. vibration. It has therefore been said
"I am a part of all that I have met"
since, as I wrote above, information forms us as human beings. Thus our parents have formed us in our formative years through the information they necessarily offered us since the day we were born and the same goes for all the people we interact with but in varying levels of intensity depending on the depth of our relationship with them (see Parents as People). 

Sex with a partner is also a way to be in-formed by that partner and constitutes its very own kind of sensual information. Letter, email, text message exchanges are also ways in which we gain and offer information to the people we know. 

None of these considerations are that revolutionary, however, since all phenomenological data constituting information of sorts, it is obvious that individuals as so many unique phenomena, whether human, animal or plant, will also for their part contribute to all that is in-formative.
