Reflections in a Petri Dish | Materialism Fever; World Pandemic

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

It’s no accident that Dog is God Spelled backwards.

Is the world as wicked as it seems to me to be? Some of us long for sanctuary and surely succor too. It’s one thing to be ‘involved’ with the world. Then you’re not troubled by this weltschmerz and the strange and occasional angst that comes to one who is no longer capable of being involved with the world. Woke up at 1:30 AM. It keeps getting earlier. One of these days it will be yesterday, just like that, or that tomorrow that never comes but somehow, it finally does and you’re finally ahead of the game or out of the game.

Does the world actually chew people up and spit them out? It seems like it does. It’s a big world; something like seven billion people. I find it hard to get my head around that number. I look at it but it just bounces from zero to zero, like one of those balls that set the timing for lyrics on a kid’s TV show. There’s this place called Indonesia. A whole lot of people live there. I don’t know any of them. I don’t know what goes on there. I heard about a place called Timor where some bad things happened. It’s like a dream, or a nightmare if you happened to be there. I suppose this is more of the world doing its laundry, here in The Kali Yuga. It’s been laundry day, every day, for a long time; wash, rinse, spin, repeat cycle, repeat cycle. Seven billion people would not be here for no reason. This is simple logic but the vast majority of the residents of this world are unable to put this together in their heads because they have a fever. There is a fever pandemic that holds the world in thralldom. It’s Materialism fever.

Materialism fever is a complex thing. It’s not just a fascination with the external world, to the exclusion of virtues and pursuits that apply to states of being that are possible when the fever has gone into remission. What it does is to color ones thoughts and emotions and this affects the manner in which one sees and hears. It affects the value given to every experience. It affects the types of experiences that are sought out. This contagion is massively amplified by its presence in the group mind. It creates a hive mind which can be very difficult to break away from the influence of.
