PseudorealityPseudoreality is a world that is perceived by the beings living in it as true, correct and immutable, but in reality is life's greatest enemy and does not deserve to be real. Characteristic are totalitarian, non-negotiable laws of nature, which form the basis for the worst atrocities, but are accepted and often even defended by the population. The environment as well as the inner nature of the human being cause immeasurable suffering and limit the possibilities. The psyche feigns a sense of meaning and hope in order to disappoint you repeatedly.
In the striving, to master all the problems, people burden themselves with aditional rules, which often culminate in oppression. This article is dealing with the fallibility of nature. The resulting societal problems are a vast topic in itself, and will be discussed under social criticism.
Virtual realities, fantasy worlds and game scenarios, which are subject to rules and restrictions, but which you can voluntarily enter and exit at any time, do not count as pseudoreality. Here you consciously abstain from some of the possibilities to compete or to have a special experience under special circumstances. Losses in such a world are not final and life threatening. On the contrary, play and imagination are the actual reality, because they offer more possibilities, are diverse and changeable and, above all, because not every fart means doom. If games have negative effects, such as addiction, then the fault lies not in the game, but in the parameters of the frame world in which the game is played. The pseudoreality is designed to make good things like dreams, games, imagination seem useless and subordinate to the morbid "seriousness of life".

About the term Reality
With reality we commonly refer to the physical world in contrast to virtual worlds and fantasies. This definition is acceptable, as long as it serves as unbiased designation to distinguish forms of existence. But it becomes problematic, when the term is used to declare the "real life" the only true and right one and to discount everything idle and intellectual as useless visionariness, when it´s used to justify deficiencies of the physical world just because of their alleged immutability and to disparage critique and idealism. My personal connotations with the term are:
About the term Nature
As Nature we commonly designate the wilderness in contrast to civilization or the living / self-emerged in contrast to the artificially created. In view of the ruthless exploitation and destruction of nature by humans, nature is prematurely portrayed as the well-meaning, innocent victim. But nature in the broadest sense is the natural law according to which everything in the universe develops. The superficial beauty and delicate balance of untouched ecosystems is just as much a product of natural evolution as the restless human spirit, which damages the environment in its irrepressible will to develop. Beneath the pretty surface of imposing landscapes, lush greenery and lively animals, nature is a cruel, abysmally perverse regime.
It is said that life is a miracle because it is so unlikely to come about. Conversely, that means nothing more than that this universe is quite unsuitable for life, and that life in it is a bad deal with great hardship. Nature gifts nothing, it forces life into a merciless fight for survival, which produces such a monstrosity like humans. Evolution does not think sustainably, it gives preference to what seems useful at the moment. Then the world suddenly goes to its knees as a result of the consequences and we only have the choice between suppressing our drive to develop, or moving on and being executed by the broken world. It doesn't matter to nature whether we destroy the world now or the dying sun does it in the distant future. That is why I will not glorify nature as the original state of perfect harmony. It is a callous system that allows life and consciousness to blossom on the basis of a long chain of beneficial coincidences until it reaches its limits, and then leaves it alone with its inadequacies and torments it with the realization of its own transience.
Injustices are often played down by saying that life is not fair. The question, how we can best come to terms with nature, however, must be followed by no less important questions: Is life then still worth living? Is it morally acceptable to come to terms with an unjust system? Is it morally acceptable to put children into an unjust World?
The body is a disability
One major reason, why life is bad, is because it´s bound to a fleshly host. Am I an ascetic preacher who condemns the sinful flesh? No, on the contrary, I want unbounded expression of all lusts, including the physical. And to do that, the body is in the way. Consciousness arises from the mind, so you could simulate physicality without all the dangers and disadvantages. You should not be tied to a body, to a single, unalterable, fragile, for constant attention crying one, which is restricting you and telling you how to be and what to do in order to to grant you the happiness hormones. Our behavior and body functions eventually serve just a pointless self- and species-preservation, never we get asked, whether we agree to the dictated goals and conditions. We shouldn´t serve life, but life should serve us. In the following, we will eludicate, how the body restricts our freedom and happiness.
- food consumption
Life support of a body is usually based on mutual exploitation. In order to get vital nutrients, other lifeforms must be killed and eaten. The dead body parts are devoured and digested with unappetizing juices to abominably stinking toxic waste. The food chain and eating hierarchies are a fundamental part of nature. The casualties are already calculated into the numbers of the offspring. Most living creatures are too dumb, to see through this perverted system. Humans have to struggle with conflicts of interest between hunger and morality. This leads to emotional repression, blunting and indifference, or to auto-aggression and militant tree huggers.
Special food can be delicious, but the daily ingestion is annoying, the procurement and preparation requires disproportionate effort. Toiled all day and in half an hour everything is eaten. Additionally, nature meticulously dictates how to feed, to avoid dieseases galore, so it is impossible to eat properly without measuring and analyzing every morsel.
A biological body is an unequaled polluter. Sweat and rancid fat oozes from all pores, dead meat exfoliates, in each body opening you find another stinking, slimy waste pit. One is trapped in a piece of rotting flesh, a petri dish for microorganisms, pests and pathogens of all kinds, which involve you in an endless struggle against the all penetrating filth. Bacteria populate every nanometer, shitting onto you, and you are even dependent of this vermin. You are decaying alive and have to do a sisyphean task to scrub off the dirt every day. And not just yourself, the whole world is a sewer that keeps producing dirt that covers everything.
Sexist is nature, which divides sentient beings into genders in the first place. Neither can you choose your body, nor your sexual orientation and you are trapped in it for life. Too easily, you are cursed with the wrong body, ugliness or preferences, which can be satisfied only by harming others. The genders are limited to their one-sided horizon of experience and develop completely incompatible ideas of relationships. It is foreseeable, that mutual lack of understanding, sexism, sexual violence and prudish morality can easily develop here. Lust and love could be so beautiful, if they were not just instruments of reproduction, which, because of its central biological importance, takes itself far too seriously, to provide unburdened joy. The great drama of pregnancy, birth and the immense responsibility for the offspring overshadows pleasure and ruins relationships. Feelings of love, romance and lust are only reproduction-enhancing mechanisms, their magic is an illusion. Evolutionary and societal optimizing pressure leads to completely exaggerated demands and cringy mating behavior. In addition, there is the danger of venereal diseases, which fuels fears on all sides. So it becomes an unenjoyable, hysterical farce. But the sex drive overwhelms every reason. People sacrifice their lifes and their dignity to the reproduction and raising of brats, unmindful of their wellbeing, and they feel important, competent and morally superior with that. More and more generations have to endure this vale of tears.
Intelligence is tolerated by the body only as far as it is useful for self-preservation. Those who can build tools, think one step ahead of their enemies, have a survival advantage. But the ability to think is also accompanied by the reflection on one's own existence, the desire for meaning and fulfillment in life, for something that is greater than just crawling over this earth, eating and multiplying until you die. And as scientific knowledge progresses, one becomes aware that one's own mind is imprisoned in the skull, written on a fragile, slimy mass that can percieve reality only as an unreliable interpretation of limited senses, that one is a slave to his genes, instincts and imprints, and that one can never truly understand other beings and the world as long as you are in that prison of flesh. Most people take the yoke of nature as given and do not plague their minds with such pondering, or they seek their salvation in dubious spiritual explanations, religions and philosophies.
Who doesn´t know this, you just sat down comfortably, then you remember something to do, or something drops. Telekinesis doesn´t work, so you have to stand up again, leave your for the actual activity adjusted posture, to wrench and bend yourself, to inconveniently go somewhere just to do a minor matter. You also stumble against everything, you are too small, too big, too light, too heavy, moving on your own is slow and cumbersome, why you are dependent of complicated, expensive and pollutive vehicles. Communication doesn´t happen through direct thought transmission, but has to be phrased in words, which is time-consuming and imprecise, regularly leading to misunderstandings and annoyance. These are all small issues, but they add up. But one big Issue is the helplessness of such a weak body in the face of the overwhelming injustice of the world, that leaves so many people behind in desperation.
The brain craves for constant entertainment, because in prehistoric times this made sense, when there were only the classic sources of pleasure such as eating, sex, etc., and these had to be worked hard for, so there was little risk of overdose. The same nature that has set this up, also has allowed us to develop a brain that can invent sources of pleasure that are much more easily accessible. But habituation comes quickly, we want more and more and always new and then we have to macerate and mortify ourselves to protect us from the evil temptations that deviate from the natural path of happiness. The satisfaction of preprogrammed addictions, such as social interaction, however, is thwarted by our own brain, since it irreversibly mutates into an antisocial cripple from the slightest miscalibration during childhood.
- Loss of Control
It is useful, that many body functions proceed automatically, but you cannot consciously intervene when the need arises. For example, energy management still thinks we are in the Stone Age. Consumption-intensive things such as brain and muscle mass get dismantled immediately, if they are not used for a while, instead excess energy is put into useless fat reserves lying around. Another shortcoming is the unconscious body language that cannot be turned off and the simultaneous lack of an innate conscious understanding of body language. So you are an open book, helplessly at the mercy of those who have learned to understand body language and who want to sound out and to manipulate you.
Already with puberty, the decay begins. You completely pointlessly start to stink and grow lackluster, frizzy bristles everywhere, which reinforce the stench because of the surface enlargement. The skin becomes dull, limp and patchy. The few who are not born as unsightly freaks, soon become disproportionate clumps of meat with disfigured grimaces. With each incoherent occasion, the brain cells commit collective suicide. Intelligence and the joy of life expire, the initially new and exciting world becomes a habit, which robs us of enthusiasm. Curiosity and the urge for freedom turn into routine and worn down thought patterns. Most adults lose all their dreams and deny anything childlike, but don´t become mature or wise either. Youth is withering quickly, most of your life you are a senile, shrunken mummy. You are increasingly plagued by ailments that make life difficult for you and your loved ones.
Whether it's little ailments that permanently pester you, or terrible strokes of fate that ruin your life - all diseases are hideous enemies whose existence has to be totally exterminated. Besides the shining self-healing power, it is often overlooked that there is also a self-destructive power. Physical defects are repulsive and cause psychological distress, and psychological distress is in return harmful to the body. You don't have enough worries yet, so a problem must of course spill over into many other areas.
- contagious diseases
I am very racist towards pathogens. Stupid nature invented parasitism, but that is not a legitimate reason for these vermin to exist. They belong exterminated. However, this is extremely tedious because there is no collective immune system that can automatically download every current vaccine.
- congenital disease
Congenital diseases, or even just inherited predisposition to disease, is based on a lack of the body's own quality testing of the germ cells. Many unsuitable mutants die in the early embryonic stage, but a number of diseases allow people to mature, only to torment them. Congenital diseases, which have long been known, occur again and again because nature learns nothing.
- ametropia, tooth displacement
DNA is too stupid to shape your eyes and teeth into the right shape. Or the body is too stupid to counteract environmental influences.
- autoimmune disease
A body incapable of distinguishing itself from pests, how stupid one can be?
Of course, the mouth is populated by unwanted parasites that piss their destructive acid in your mouth. Teeth are also designed in such a way that the dirt gets stuck in all the gaps, where it is difficult to clean.
Cancer tops it all off. Everything causes cancer, sitting, standing, lying down, the sun, your own shit, almost every chemical substance. Every tweak can mean cancer and everyone just dies of cancer. Cancer here, cancer there. Such a penetrating crap! Doctors recommend amputating the entire body because the risk of cancer is 5000%, and for those who are still persistent, there is out-of-body cancer. It is a disgraceful death to be murdered by one's own treacherous body cells, this world is neither our home nor hospitable. It stabs you in the back at every opportunity.
- contagious diseases
Pain is said to be a warning sign. This works for small injuries, where you immediately step back and treat the wound. But when it hurts somewhere, and you first have to study to know what to do, it already gets absurd. A howling siren is of little use, if no bug report and no repair instructions are delivered. But it gets really idiotic, when one is incapacitated by one's own alarm system, when the pain is so severe that one doubles over on the floor and is unable to do anything about it. Positive sensations quickly lose their appeal and can even turn into the opposite in the case of continuous fire. But you don´t habituate to pain, even if you die anyway, the siren continues to howl pointlessly. The pain function can turn life into an unbearable hell and gives criminals a variety of torture methods at hand. And there is even pain when you are not sick at all, e.g. the notorious menstrual cramps.
Fortunately, you don´t have to live forever in this shitty world, but dying in its present manner is a cruel extermination of loved ones by the callous nature, whose heartless logic created the contradiction of self-preservation instinct and mortality with cynical contempt for our feelings. Instead of gently dissolving into air, the end has of course to be as undignified and unaesthetic as possible. There are 2 basic ways of dying: Either you wait in plaguing uncertainty, until you get carried away by disease and decay or you help with violence. Besides sorrow and agony, you will also bother your bereaved with your ugly, filthy carcass, which must expensively be disposed of as hazardous waste, while your personal valuables are desecrated by philistines and vultures.
The evil dominates
It's not, that everything is bad in the pseudoreality. There are good and bad things in the world, but the world itself is bad and always gives priority to harm. This spoils good things, because they don´t exist on their own terms and stay good forever, but are only a shape made of perishable materials.
- unjust causality
Unhappiness is the default setting, that is always present without any action, to which everything goes by itself. Happiness is something, that must be worked out and therefore can break again. In a just world, good deeds should lead to good results, bad deeds to bad results, and if you do nothing, nothing should happen. But in pseudoreality, there is no clearly defined good and evil. What is useful to one person, is harmful to the other. With every step, that seems good at first glance, you have to keep in mind: What are the side effects? Is someone else suffering from the benefit I gain? Is the positive effect only short-term and harmful in the long run? And do not forget: No good deed goes unpunished. If you look closely, almost nothing can be achieved without risks and sacrifices. And if you do nothing, don´t think everything remains as it is. Friendships must be maintained, houses must be maintained, freedom must be defended. You have to drudge to build things, then you have to drudge to keep them. You always have to work for your well-being, but for the bad, you just have to sit back.
- unjust propability
Usually, there are only one or few ways, to make something right, but countless ways, to make it wrong. Since doing nothing is mostly harmful, and you can only do a limited amount of things, the propability to cause harm is infinitely bigger, than to cause good, independently of whether the things you do are good or bad, simply because of the fact, that there is always an infinte number of things, you don´t do. Additionally, you have to expect the worst possible reaction of your fellows, regardless of the factual outcome of your deeds. They will slam even good intentions and sabotage everything.
- Evanescence has always the last word
In the beginning of a life, the world appears full of possibilities. Carelessly, we nest in this world and invest emotions in its fleeting things, that then get wrested from us without mercy. We get the chance to build something, only to fall even deeper. Positive and negative things are equally transient. However, evanescence is rather associated with the fading of good things, because no one grieves for bad things. When we compare joy and pain, we don´t compare the general occurence, but we think of a specific positive event and compare its receipt, which is temporary, with its loss, which is eternal and irreversible. The future is uncertain, except for death. There is no guarantee to find love, but a guarantee, that loved ones will die. Love and Hope tie us to life, but the fear of loss prevents us from enjoying life relaxedly. We are far more busy, pondering about dangers and fighting problems, because these have far greater impact, than good things. They always say, you have to get over tragedies and carry on. This would make sense, if there was something to win at the end. But you only put off the evil hour, you have to overcome neverending obstacles and to look back to more and more lost things. In the end destruction always wins.
- fragile psyche
It is said, that happiness is largely determined by one's own thinking. It is also said, that the first years of life are the most imprinting. Therefore, the external influences, which are actually less responsible, have their greatest effect at the time, when a human being is most vulnerable to them, in which one has not yet built up a solid world view in order to defend themselves against harmful influences. No rose-tinted glasses, no self-deceptive mantras to sugarcoat your life, even the smallest of the bad role models strike you uncheckedly and ruin your life permanently. Parenting is a tightrope walk, you can only do it wrong. If one is too strict, the brood depraves, if one is too lax, it also depraves. The psyche absorbs negativity like a sponge, every flaw burns irrevocably into the subconscious. Destroying is easy, repairing is nearly impossible. To procreate under these circumstances is a reprehensible act.
- the brake of progress
The lifespan of people is limited. Once a generation has learned from its mistakes, it goes extinct and the new one has to learn everything from the start. While organized gathering and sharing of knowledge enables some progress, experience can not be taught. The further the misdeeds of the elderly date back, the more unreal they appear, the easier the mistakes are misjudged and committed again. In addition, the everyday struggle for survival lets the latest scientific findings take a backseat. The quick buck seems more urgent, the barely wheezing status quo safer, than to worry about fundamental changes that make life better in the long run. Thus the progress is long drawn out and a few backward fanatics or natural disasters are enough to throw everything back to the Stone Age. Even if people succeed in learning from history, it is not a reasonable price that they always have to fall flat on teir faces to figure something out, because it does not only strike those who need it.
- the lie of the balance
Pushing something out of balance is a bad thing. But if the balance is a middle way, it should not just be able to fall in one direction, you could tilt it in the direction of positivity. But that does not work. Tipping is always bad, only the balance is good. But balance can´t be good by definition, because it is balancing good and bad. So if the balance is the best possible way, 50% positivity is the maximum, and that is just the impropable ideal state, most of the time it's out of balance. Although theoretically more than 50% positivity can be reached, you have to have a guilty conscience because in the end the equation has to work and the negative surplus is shifted on to somewhere else.
- no escape from subjugation
Who accepts the unfair rules of life and makes the best of it, is a servile opportunist, who is only thriving, because he adapts to the ruling order. But who has the backbone, despite all senselessness, to question the laws of nature and to rebel against adaptation, has to accuse himself of succumbing to his pride and convenience, instead of doing something for his happiness. Our opinions and decisions, what we perceive as our self, is nothing but a compliant minion of our subconsciousness, which eventually just serves self- and species preservation and bypasses or overwrites our personality at a pinch. But as long as the psychological strain isn´t strong enough, it remains in its dreadlocked thought patterns. We are imprisoned in a body, ruled by a program, exposed to an uncontrollable world. Our waking consciousness is degraded to a passive observer, who underlies the delusion, to be the ruler of himself.
- coercion leads to more coercion
Since natural constraints such as mental isolation and limited resources lead to greed, envy, and lack of understanding, some folks come up with the crazy idea to oppress people and impose a panacea for wealth and happiness onto them. This lifts greed, envy and lack of understanding from the personal level to a societal dimension. Personal problems you can theoretically solve on your own, but if the madness is nationalized, the shit has hit the fan. Nature itself is sad enough, but then you are additionally opressed by things like economy, politics and religion.
- The World agrees with the evil
Natural laws don´t know human rights. They give violence its tempting power, which bad people embrace. It is in the nature of things, that the most ruthless and power-hungry people get into the most powerful positions. The brain is designed to build up bogeymen and fight them quickly. While forces of freedom are thwarted by constant explaining and mediating, the evil overrides everything by manipulation and opression. Good examples and pleas are useless against depravity, one is compelled to get into the spiral of violence.
The Personality Dictate
In your head, there is a little judge. If you dare to neglect the way of life prescribed by nature, he will punish you through disease, unhappiness, depression and increased mortality. On the other hand, if you behave well and do exactly what you have been designed to do, then he rewards you with a candy full of happiness hormones. The judge can be bribed temporarily, but only to pay back manyfold afterwards. If you want to obtain your fortune through deviant activities and substances, he will punish you with addictions and all their consequences. The required personality itself is nothing else but pre-installed, incurable addictions.
- physical training
You do enjoy the conveniences of civilization? Guilty! You are an animal, designed for life in the wild. Evolution does not keep up with technological progress. You must sacrifice your time to fidget, you must toil physically and take an eye on your diet, otherwise you will get fat, sick and weak. And of course lack of physical health also affects psychical health.
- mental challenges
You like to relax and don´t want to keep stressing your brain for your mental fitness? Guilty! You have to scourge your synapses, you have to trudge out of your comfort zone, otherwise you'll be punished with stupidity and demotivation, your already built up synapses will be taken from you, making it increasingly difficult for you to do anything.
- Suitability of Interests
You are interested in idle things and have no truck with useful work? Guilty! Nobody consciously chooses their likes and dislikes, and yet you are solely held responsible for them. If your interests do not match the externally determined demands of life, you will always lead an unfulfilled existence and in the worst case be unfit for life.
You are introverted, pssimistic or have any quirks? Guilty! They say, you should be authentic, but only as long as your authenticity coincidentally matches that of a sociable optimist, who knows to put himself on the market, otherwise you will find no friends, no love, no sex, no job, no help and you are doomed.
- social contacts
You are a loner and think you don´t need friends? Guilty! Even if you hate people, nature doesn´t grant you to become happy alone. It has condemned you to be a social being. This is even worse than the other dictates, because it is dependent on unreliable other people. Even if you are willing, the others are antisocial and will reject you, if you don´t meet the requirements. The feeling of being misunderstood will drive you even more into isolation.
You have a pronounced sense for aesthetics? Guilty! Nature puts you and others into flawed bodies, and you must uncritically accept, what is thrown at you. Since nobody has chosen their physical appearence, a fine taste is automatically a discrimination against everyone, who is ugly, and you are co-responsible to promote a morbid beauty cult. So, be satisfied with mediocrity!
You don´t have trust in the world? Guilty! Wether there is a basis for trust at all, the world doesn´t give a shit. The socalled basic trust is simply expected. This term already sounds like brainless naivety, running blindly into your perdition. But without it, you will be punished with desperation, depression and increased risk of dementia. If you have trust, the world will do anything but stop to anguish you, which leads us to our next point:
You are sensitive and no born fighter? Guilty! You must be hardboiled and blunted. Who doesn´t stand up again, repeating the same mistake over and over again and build upon the life, that takes everything from you in the end anyway, will be charged with great unattractiveness and will be left behind without mercy. But who praises resilience as a virtue, only speaks for a tyranny, that strives to impose affirmation for all its misdeeds through violence.
- standing on one´s own feet
You are well sheltered and live happily in Hotel Mum? Guilty! Yoe will be called lazy and spoiled. You will be punished with dependency and learned helplessness and your parents will be reproached for their good intentions. Life will tear you out of your safe home without mercy and rob you of all your loved ones. It forces you to learn all the annoying crap to survive the wilderness.
Even if you meet all the requirements, that is not enough for nature. You also have to be grateful for it and deem it right. Act as if everything is sunshine and roses, what life is selling you at extortionate prices and idealize the dark sides into "opportunities" that the oh-so-benign nature grants you to grow on! If you use your alleged freedom of thought and think too much about negative things, then the judge will make those thoughts your prison cell and self fulfilling prophecies. Nature will do nothing of its own to save you from this condition. It will continue to destroy you unless you choose to acknowledge the dictate and struggle your way back under unimaginable torments of self-denial.
The 2 principles of psychology
The human psyche can be boiled down to two basic principles, which always turn against oneself:
- Self is the fool
The first rule says, that the blame is always on your side. Even if not, you must carry the can for it. Nature will never bother to admit a mistake and always shift the responsibility upon you. If you suffer from something, it´s always because of your negative thinking, never because of the obvious depravity of the world. The flaws of the others are only your own projected weaknesses. And if your psychical problems are indeed the others´ fault, you must still work off everything yourself. Then, you must accept, forgive, get over it, always you have to betray yourself and to adapt to the world.
- Always the Opposite
The second rule says, that the truth is always the opposite of your convictions and to overcome your shortcomings, you have to do, what you precisely want to do least. If you hate or fear something, you must expose yourself to it. If you are lethargic, you have to be active above all. If you are idealistic, you will get disappointed and have to accept the opposing side. As soon, as a wish becomes fulfilled, you are unsatisfied and want something else. Also, if you want to help someone with mental issues, the logically obvious actions are always just wrong and make it even worse. Negative personalities get the advice to seek the presence of positive people, while positive personalities get the advice to avoid negative people.
The evil is pointless and illegitimate
There are several attempts to justify the evil in the world. No matter what excuses one invents for the necessity of evil, they are circular reasoning based on the logic of the same laws of nature that cause evil. Wether badness is real or imagined, evitable or inevitable, just or unjust, absolute or relative, doesn´t matter. The perception of evil exists in the form of suffering and this contradicts the will of every sentient being. A murderer is not judged by the number of days in his life he did not murder. We should not apply a different standard to nature than to any other criminal system.
- Dualism Nature works. For that reason alone, complacent masochists think it is perfect and just. Suffering and loss are glossed over as an inevitable part of life. The challenges would make life interesting in the first place and you would grow with them.
- creator of one´s own reality Disciples of this theory claim, that our negative thoughts and evaluations would make the world appear so bad, we should kindly see everything positive. Evolution has not made our perception of bad more intense than the perception of good for no reason. The bad is a permanent threat, you have to keep an eye on. If we just change our minds, there can be no talk of being the creator of one's own reality. The fact, that reality does not adapt to our desires shows, that the mental creativity is subject to limitations. If these constraints indeed do not come from the outside world, but are in the interests of an unconscious, higher self, the problem would only be shifted one link in the causal chain. What reason would the higher self have to torment its incarnation, if it was free to decide and there was no external need for it? The laws of nature in themselves have no consciousness, but we do. We are the ones who suffer, and yet it is not us who are allowed to shape the world in which we have to live, but we have to let rules be dictated to us by a callous machine, that does not benefit from being so shitty.
- merit principle As already mentioned, the unjust causality ensures, that you have to toil for your wellbeing. Instead of looking for the guilt in the system, some postulate a basic guilt of the living being, that has to prove itself in order to deserve the good. This manifests itself primarily in economic pressure to perform and religious concepts such as divine testing or karma. We were neither involved in drafting the laws of nature, nor did we sign a declaration of consent. We owe nothing to the world. It is obvious that the distribution of joy and suffering is not immediately based on good and bad actions. Decisions are rarely made out of bad intentions. We do what we believe is right based on our personality and experience. The effects of our decisions are often delayed, subliminal or are corrupted and superimposed by outside influences, so that they lead to persistent fallacies. We cannot influence things like the environment into which one is born or certain diseases. To base these things on collective guilt or past life guilt is idiotic. Punishments, where there is no recognizable connection between the perpetrator and the victim and where there is no learning effect for the perpetrator and no protective effect for the victim, but which are based only on the revenge of an unverifiable higher power, are pointless.
Joy serves to motivate, pain to avoid danger. However, many dangers cannot be avoided at all. The wear and tear of joy is a warning against the danger of neglecting other self-preservation measures. In a world without danger it would not be necessary to learn to deal with suffering and the habituation function would be superfluous. The total abolition of suffering would include suffering from too much joy. So the supposed necessity of pain rests only on the existence of itself.
If one could enjoy the same thing forever, the motivation to tap into new sources of joy would disappear. It is quite true, that problems provide the incentive for progress and change. But we have to differentiate here. Challenges are stimulating when you have the chance to go offensive. This means that basic supplies are ensured and there is a realistic prospect of persistent improvement. But most of the time we are trapped in a hopeless defensive, busy with fighting deterioration and the risk of losing everything outweighs the chances to win. Most problems do not enrich us, they wear us out.
The 4 stages to vanquish evil
Just warned against this, I now present the panacea for all problems. Of course it will not work, because this wouldn´t be pseudoreality, if hope appeared realistic.
- recognizing the evil
The root of all evil is coercion and the essence of all evil is suffering. Where living consciousness is plagued by coercion, suffering arises. Different forces collide, and where they cannot find a constructive way, the stronger force mercilessly overrides the weaker one. Often times, both parties have legitimate claims, but it seems impossible that everything can unfold freely at the same time and forever. This is a coercion as well, the coercion to compromise. Nature rolls over us with disease, death and destruction and all of its crimes remain unpunished. It coerces us to accept. Evil does not occur personified and separate from good; it hides cowardly and is inextricably mixed with good. It occupies the brains of potentially good people and uses them as a human shield, because you cannot kill them without also killing the good parts and thus causing new suffering. We are forced to keep evil down with lengthy and cumbersome methods; we can never really defeat it. Our whole life we are coerced to put up with every whim of the extortionate laws of nature. Those who submit to causality and jump on bandwagons seem to be able to live happily. But that's just phoney peace. We want to achieve happiness beyond being obedient. In Fantasy, everything is possible. There, evil can be fought overtly, but we are prisoners of reality. It is verily the realm of evil.
- fighting the evil
Imagination is the path to freedom. Dreams, playing, art and stories open up worlds, that can be so much better than "reality". Fantasy is the legitimate reality, that has to defy all constraints. It shall expel evil, isolate it from good and banish it into vulnerable bodies. Evil shall be torn out of its hiding place and face responsibility. It shall feel like us, what it means to be trapped in a perishable piece of flesh without a chance of escape, defenseless at the mercy of violence. It shall become aware of how it is hated by the whole universe, how wrong and useless its existence is. To do this, we use its own means against it: "Misfortunes never come singly". Anything bad has a domino effect, a long, causal trail of blood, that we pick up and reverse. This suffer-mirror-curse allows the suffering to flow back to the perpetrator, who experiences everything he has ever caused on his own body. Every fear, every physical and psychological pain, every loss, every sadness, anger and despair, every helplessness, all of this in the full extension of the life of every single victim, falls on the personified evil and kills it in immeasurable agony. We can have a clear conscience, take truly fulfilling revenge, because we do not destroy living beings that succumbed to evil, but rather coercion and suffering itself.
- ignoring the evil
Ignoring does not mean accepting the suffering. Suffering is to be despised with every fibre of our existence and deserves not the slightest concession. But while at Stage 2 we had still to sacrifice too much time and energy to eliminate this nefarious entity, we now move on to passive annihilation. We no longer pay any attention to the enemy and pursue our lusts undisturbedly. The power of imagination will build up a shield around us that protects us from any persecution. No pathogen, no unwanted creature, no weapon can penetrate it. It can also be activated a refraction of light, which makes us invisible or hides all attackers. So we do not feel disturbed anymore. The intelligent force field expands over things that are important to us. This way our friends, family and our property are protected. If we are eager to commit a "crime," let's just do it. The time line will be split, so that both of them, perpetrators and victim are equally happy. The damage is outsourced to an extra dimension and via suffer-mirror-curse returned to itself. We determine the causality of our actions ourselves and are no longer forced to maintain our lives at the expense of others. Shall the coercion have to take a step back for diversion and struggle in vain to spoil the fun for us.
- escaping the evil
On the last stage, we no longer have to bother with this inadequate world at all. The imagination forms a so-called Panzercloud. This is an indestructible dimensional field in which our imagination becomes reality. Our personal universe, with which we become one and experience infinite joy. We float as a self-contained cycle, independent of any external influences through the framework. "Reality" bothers us only as a voluntary amusement. We enlightened ones can visit each other and experience adventures, while the evil suffocates lonely and forgotten in itself.
