Is that not the question of all time? We live in an age of information, it has become our true currency. In the entire history of the human race never before have so many people had as great an access to as much information as those living today have at their finger tips. It is ubiquitous, it surrounds our every move, our every breathing seconds.
We are pummeled on every side by information, information about everything assaults us from every side. We are overwhelmed by information. So much so that we ignore the crucial because of the important. Most of us fail to correctly prioritize which information to pay careful attention to and which to ignore. We sleep in a cacophony in mind numbingly loud information that ceaselessly demands our attention.
Who did what to whom and why. What happened where and when. We simply cannot take it all in and make anything useful out of it all. We have been blinded by the light, the sound and the fury of the information that surrounds us. Yet most of us are blissfully unaware of how much incredibly important information were are ignoring.
So, I write this insignificant little blog (no, I am under to illusions about how insignificant this little blog of mine is) attempting to digitally scream at the top of my digital lungs as it were about the things that I believe are critically important. I honestly do not care in the slightest that any of you who read this think that I am a crazy conspiracy theorist blogger. I am what I am, and perhaps maybe I am a crazy conspiracy theory blogger.
I try as best as I know how to provoke people into thinking. No one can make you think, least of all me. There are others out there, they inhabit places of wealth and power, of respect and prestige, who do not want you to think about the events transpiring around you. They want you to remain comfortably asleep. While you sleep, they make all the important decisions regarding your life.
These people control the Media, the Government and private industry. They have made themselves your lords and masters, and you do not even know it, let alone who they are. Which of you will wake up and regain control of your lives is mostly up to them, which means most of you will never wake up. You will go through your lives asleep, being controlled and utterly blissfully unaware of that fact.
No one can wake you up if you refuse to even consider the possibility that you are not awake. Waking up is hard, it hurts, it’s so much easier to remain asleep. It’s so much easier to let someone else make all of your important decisions for you.
All Is Vanity
1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
3 What profit hath a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun?
4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full: unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
8 All things are full of labor; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
The Experience of the Preacher
12 ¶ I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.
13 And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.
14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
16 ¶ I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
