Have you ever noticed how a flock of birds in flight will turn to the left or to the right at exactly the same moment? Most people who have watched birds in flight agree that the birds could not have accomplished this by simply following the "lead bird". There had to be some sort of automatic communication process taking place between the birds.
The Philosophy of Exotischism embraces the idea that there is an automatic communication process taking place between human beings. Whenever two or more people are together, subconscious spiritual messages are traveling between their souls, exchanging information, educating the other person, and influencing the other person. This information travels between our subconscious minds in a manner similar to the way that radio, television, and cell phone signals are sent. But instead of us broadcasting our data out to the world, it is more likely that there is a force in nature that comes into us, draws out our subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings, and passes those thoughts and feelings around to other people.
The Rise of the Warrior Class
the 20th Century came to a close it was starting to become clear that a new
class of people was beginning to develop.
The seeds that helped to create this new class of people (who in
later years were to behave in many ways like the warriors of the past) were
being planted as early as the 1930's.
the years preceding World War II many people began to abandon their religious
beliefs because of the conflicts between religious myths and science.
During World War II the excesses of the warlords in Asia and the white
the period following World War II there were many books and articles published
that showed how people are capable of putting complexes on other people
doing something unfair to them or saying something unfair about them and then tying them in psychological "knots" from which they cannot
escape by denying that they have done anything wrong.
There were a lot of people at that time who believed that by the year 2000
people would no longer want to gain feelings of personal power by taking
advantage of other people psychologically. It was thought that once people
realized the manner in which they were hurting other people, they would want to
stop doing it.
the past few years the new class of warrior that has developed around the world
has shown that its members take pride in taking advantage of people who are
psychologically (and spiritually) vulnerable. Instead of using the
information that has been published on psychological weaknesses to help other
people become stronger, they have used that information to purposely abuse
people who have been abused enough already.
the excesses of this new warrior class are likely to catch up with it in much
the same way that the excesses of the warlords in Asia and the white
Eight Miles High
the period following World War II a lot of people were beginning to realize that
mankind had been living in a dream world. People had been flying high
believing in myths that had no basis in fact and were now having to face the
harsh reality that they were about eight miles high and were falling
uncontrollably back towards the ground. There was a period of time in the
late 1960s when the children of prominent families were walking around dazed
from the drugs they were taking and were joining cults that took advantage of
the problems they had adjusting to the fact that they were not really better
than other people.
when people began to see how hard it was for the middle and upper classes to
adjust to the harsh realities that were starting to become obvious at that time,
many people tried to create the impression that the people who were starting to
benefit from the shattering of the old myths (those people who were the most spiritually and psychologically vulnerable) were actually the ones who
had been flying too high.
Once again the children of the middle and upper classes felt like they were
better than other people (at least they were better than those wayward people
who had been flying too high hoping that they could escape the spiritual and
psychological bondage that they had been placed under).
of the reasons why people in the late 1960s felt that they had been flying too
high in the past was that they began to realize that they were constantly
attacking other people spiritually and psychologically by doing unfair things to
them and saying unfair things about them and then denying that they had done
anything wrong. Yet at the
same time they professed to believe in religions and philosophies that put forth
ideas such as "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and
"a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step".
They were flying high (and were for perhaps the first time in their lives vulnerable) because there was a wide gap between
what they professed to believe and the way that they actually lived (and because
everyone knew that there was a wide gap between what they professed to believe
and the way that they actually lived).
also began to fear that eventually they might be asked to give back the
spiritual power that they had stolen from other people in
the past when they unfairly attacked them spiritually and psychologically
and then denied that they had done anything wrong.
Many of the stronger members of society had a lot of spiritual energy (and they were capable of giving and
receiving love with that spiritual energy) but they realized that their love was
based largely on being "rich in spirit" from having stolen their
spiritual power from other people. In order to avoid a situation where
society might start to criticize them and take away the spiritual power they had
stolen, they started to reach down (and reach out) to people who were a little
bit more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable than themselves (but who were basically the same as
themselves in terms of thinking that it was not really wrong to steal spiritual
power from other people). They tried to get these people to join them in
the practice of stealing spiritual power from the people in society who were the
most spiritually and psychologically vulnerable. They hoped that society would allow them to hold on to the
spiritual power that they had stolen in the past because they would appear to be
doing something that was good in the present (helping millions of people who
were less fortunate than themselves to increase their feelings of spiritual
Many efforts were made at this time by the stronger members of society to educate the people who were not quite as cool (or not quite as together) as themselves on how they could increase their spiritual energy by learning how to take advantage of people who were even more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable than themselves. As a result of these efforts, over the past few years more people have been flying high than ever before. Originally, the stronger members of society had been flying about eight miles high because of the wide gap between what they professed to believe and the way that they actually lived. When they showed the people who were a little bit more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable than themselves (people who had originally only been flying about two to three miles off the ground because of the smaller gap that then existed between what they professed to believe and the way in which they actually lived) the secrets of how they could steal the spiritual power of those who were even weaker spiritually and psychologically than themselves, then these people began to fly much higher than they had flown before. They increased the height at which they were flying from about two to three miles to about eight miles because of the much wider gap that now existed between what they now professed to believe and the way that they actually lived. There were now tens of millions of people who were flying eight miles high.
Navigating a Straight Course
Most of us who were born in the last half of the 20th Century were encouraged very strongly by our teachers and by our families to learn to think as carefully and as logically as possible. We were taught to respect science and we were taught to challenge any ideas that were not backed up by the cold and hard facts. Our teachers and families were not trying to mislead us. They wanted us to be able to successfully navigate our way through life and they sincerely believed that it was dangerous to accept any ideas that were not based on the facts.
The same respect for the truth that was instilled in all of us as children is causing a lot of people to start questioning the physical laws that in the past have been so important to science. But while a lot of people are impressed by the argument that energy is matter (we may be able to exchange spiritual information with other people in the same way that radio, television, and cell phone signals are sent and received), the real reason we are starting to once again believe in spiritual forces is that we realize from our experience dealing with other people (and from our strong emotions towards other people) that our spiritual links (both positive and negative) with other people have had a large influence on our lives and will continue to have a large influence on our lives in the future. As we learn to better understand the nature of spiritual forces, we should be able to start steering a straighter and a more consistent course as we navigate our way through life.
