The Gold Key Release:
to Release You from 
Forever-Limitation
into the Space of Open Possibility


As a possibility . . . 
it's available in many ways . . .

as an actuality, it requires intelligence and sanity to enjoy it safely:

Self-Gratification

The intention of this writing is to appeal to your imagination
to attract your attention and get you to remember things.

Having done that -- and I mean this to be very important -- to dissolve the substance of it all by means I have provided at the end -- a lifesaver.

Persons and things consist of both form and substance. "Substance" makes "form" substantial.

People confuse "the form" with "the substance."
They may think that it's enough to have "substance" without being equally discerning about the "form" of the substance. People are not that discriminating.

In fact, the word, "discrimination", as been given a bad name -- even though it only means, "discernment". What has been popularized as the meaning of "discrimination" (by the official sources of information) is not true discrimination, but stereotypical discrimination, broad discrimination without attention to details. It is the word, "discrimination", indiscriminately used.

Without discrimination, people are unable to tell what is good for them from what is bad for them. They take too much of "the bad" along with, "the good".

That is the basis of materialism, that is, Consumerism
an attempted solution to the distresses of life.


If that escapes you, listen to this:

Two behaviors that involve self-gratification are the affliction of the world:

immature self-gratification
and
insane self-gratification

These are not the only two behaviors there are, but they are the two major afflictions of the socio-economic world.

IMMATURE SELF-GRATIFICATION

abandons sensibility (intelligence) -- or never had it

Immature Self-Gratification wants things before it has created them or earned them.  It wants more before it feels it has earned it -- but it rationalizes that it deserves it. It wants it, now.  It confuses imagining something in a vague sort of way with imagining it with such completeness and integrity that it can be of value others. It wants the "owning" but hasn't the capacity to sustain having what it wants because it hasn't developed, enough. It hasn't borne its fruit, but it wants the fruit brought forth by others -- already.  It's a Consumer.  Infantile and childish behavior doesn't know it's infantile or childish.

Nonetheless, it wants its gratification  -- and those who aspire to Insane Self-Gratification will give it.

INSANE SELF-GRATIFICATION
abandons conscience (integrity) for self-gratification -- or never had it

Insane Self-Gratification gets gratification from choosing The Unwholesome.

It accepts displeasure as part of its pleasure.

It chooses the things of its own pleasure and takes the pleasure despite the displeasure it afflicts -- and then tries to control the displeasure that comes with it, like taking a drug to counter the side-effects of other drugs.

Knowingly choosing what is unwholesome is the definition of, evil. It's also kind-of stupid.

It is the basis of Consumerism as a paradigm of marketing -- programming people to want things they don't already want, beyond what is beneficial, programming people to acquire meager (even if expensive), temporary (even if modestly fulfilling), or questionable (even if popular) pleasures in exchange for long-term displeasure -- the displeasure of being in debt beyond their means, of owing and not being able to pay, or of the let-down of the thing acquired not fulfilling the dream portrayed in the marketing -- portrayed to lastingly exceed the long-term displeasure of debt -- acquisitions depicted to make the displeasure worth it -- the tacit rationale for war, crime, and predation of all kinds.

One of the attitudes it holds is, " Businesses should be protected from interference simply because they are profit centers" -- a very simple-minded attitude. Don't you agree? 

Insane Self-Gratification is the arrested development or magnification of immature behaviors --  the desire to suckle at the breast more and more, and forever -- Immature Self-Gratification "gone 'Godzilla at Tokyo', 'Dracula in London". Insane Self-Gratification is as Thirsty as Dracula and as Big as Godzilla -- bigger, if the truth be told. It's appetite is more ravenous -- and it can't distinguish between good and evil -- the Legal Insanity Defense -- or simply won't -- the definition of guilty. However, like Immature Self-Gratification, it has a rationalization: because "business" is involved, It deserves it. It rationalizes because it secretly feels otherwise.

Insane Self-Gratification preys upon Immature Self-Gratification. It feeds off of unnecessary Consumerism in its own Super Consumerism. It's "The Consumer of Consumers -- The BIG Consumer" and Immature Self-Gratification is the source of its food. 

Immature Self-Gratification is The Way of life of The Eloi. ("the 99.9%")
Insane Self-Gratification is The Way of Life of The Morlocks. ("the .1%")

in H.G. Welles', The Time Machine

The Metaphor of The Time Machine

H.G. Welles' story, The Time Machine, was set in a future, post-war Earth.

In an early scene, we see the time-traveler in his time machine whirling into the future. The time machine comes to rest in a dark cavern. In moments, humanoid creatures discover the time-traveler and his machine in the cavern. In moments, they attack him. They are hairy, aggressive creatures with large teeth and eyes that glow in the dark. These are the Morlocks. The Morlocks are flesh-eaters -- mutants -- the ones who provide the sustenance of the Eloi. The time-traveler manages to fight them off and escapes in the time machine to a days-later time, still in the cavern.

After his first encounter with the Morlocks, we see the time traveler emerge from the cavern into an idyllic, garden-like setting. Soon, he comes upon The Eloi, a peaceful, aesthetically-refined people reminiscent of the Flower Children of the 60s. The Eloi live lives of leisure and gentle entertainments with their needs provided, mysteriously, on an ongoing basis. They are vegetarians.

In a later scene, we hear what we recognize as air-raid sirens. The Eloi stop their feasting, look up, and then file peacefully into the great mouths of underground shelters with heavy sliding doors that close behind them with a boom. After a time the doors slide open and the Eloi emerge -- but not all of them.  The flesh the Morlocks eat is that of the Eloi who come to the caverns when the sirens sound. They "farm" the Eloi. The sirens are theirs.

The Eloi correspond to those who live lives of Immature Self-Gratification. The Morlocks correspond to those who live lives of Insane Self-Gratification. As the Morlocks feed upon the Eloi, Insane Self-Gratification feeds upon Immature Self-Gratification.

That is the metaphor of the story, The Time Machine, as it applies to today.

When Civilizations Fall

A Civilization dies, falls, or collapses either because of environmental calamity or, more commonly, because of Immature Self-Gratification wanting more than it earns and because Insane Self-Gratification doesn't care, as long as it can feed on Immature Self-Gratification. Insane Self-Gratification has the system rigged to maintain Immature Self-Gratification as its food source.

But for either, it's not enough.

MORE, MORE

Both want, "MORE" -- one of them, with good reason:

The Eloi are dependent upon the Morlocks, who give enough to sustain them but who keep their power over The Eloi hidden and unrecognized. The Eloi really do need, "more", for their own survival against the predation of the Morlocks -- more information about their situation and control over their own survival. Their dependency is their weakness. They remain oblivious.

The Morlocks are dependent upon the dependency of the Eloi for their sustenance and keep their power over the Eloi by hiding in the caverns, unseen and so unrecognized by the Eloi -- while they provide enough for the Eloi to survive as a food source. They want more Eloi -- for breakfast. They want to maintain control.

The two have the mood of, "MORE", in common.  It's just that one is predator and the other is prey.

The System of, "More"

In Consumerism, the Consumer is Consumed by credit-debt, the money from interest going to those who own the System.

In Consumerism, those who control the wealth skim wealth from the flow of money from the productivity of the producer in virtually all of its channels, while producing nothing but rationalizations. They are involved with getting the Consumer to consume more and different things, unnecessarily or excessively, to exercise power toward the accumulation of wealth, and through wealth, control, for Insane Self-Gratification. That's Never Enough.

The Displeasure of Never Enough triggers the idea in them that "More Would Be Enough" -- and on they go, choosing the pleasures of their undeserving life, oblivious or inured or desensitized or perversely cherishing the displeasures of their actions that make all they have, always, "Not Enough".

It's been said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

I think that's stupidity. It never learns.

I think that insanity is "going for what is, and feels, unwholesome" as if it were wholesome.

That leaves the psychopaths, who override the feelings of people for the sake of their "one-channel mind" results. They, also, choose self-gratification. But just as they don't feel the feelings of other people, they also don't feel their own feelings. Those feelings are overridden by the tenacity of the logic in them, that They Are Doing Things Right. They are selectively perceptive, one-channel (wealth-and-power-and-material-pleasures) minds incapable of or unwilling to take in more criteria than, "Money Excuses Everything". A one channel-mind is another version of, underdeveloped -- a "one-trick pony" mind.

It's not that "money excuses" (although it's well known that the wealthy and powerful get away with murder), but that people excuse them, abandoning their intelligence and integrity for the hope of themselves (Immature Self-Gratification) becoming like the wealthy and powerful (Insane Self-Gratification).

What a stupid game -- both are forms of Humanoid Self-Gratification

How about this:

Immature Self-Gratification: Educate yourself. Mature into becoming more fully human. Develop your interests into abilities. Produce what is valued so that people will be glad to give to you. Get your self-esteem from living up to your own potential, not from others' social or political approval (which isn't self-esteem, but "other esteem" -- which doesn't really suffice, anyway). Exercise truthfulness to self, patience, persistence and creativity. Exercise creativity that embodies and advances well-being. AWAKEN AND DEVELOP YOUR INTENDING, IMAGINING, ATTENDING AND REMEMBERING faculties of intelligence. Get your intelligences on-line and connected.

Earn what you get within your capacity to maintain it. "By not advancing himself, he stays ahead of himself." (Lao Tsuh)

Overcome the indoctrination of Insane Self-Gratification. Deprogram yourself. Exercise your intelligence.

Insane Self-Gratification: You've seen that wealth, power, and consumerism are Never Enough, yet you haven't learned the lesson. In that, you're the personification of stupid -- never learns -- and insane -- going for what is unwholesome. You're smart in a one-channel-mind sort of way, but you create more detriment than you do, benefit, by preying upon Immature Self-Gratification instead of nurturing it because, "being in business, you deserve it," a slick rationalization if I ever heard one -- a rationalization  you have sold to Immature Self-Gratification to excuse directing the fount of wealth in your direction, while allowing a trickle to trickle down.

You think this is a "top-down control" culture, but fail to recognize that the foundation of your wealth are those on whom you prey -- and that their well-being funds your own. Wealth accumulates proportionally to its general circulation. When wealth accumulates in pools and doesn't circulate, stagnation ensues. It's "socio-economic diabetes".

Get your "Enough" from the "Enough" of others who had, "Not Enough". Partake in their relief and well-being, duly earned.

Overcome the indoctrination of "More Will be Enough". Wake up and redirect your lives.

~~~~~~~~~~

But understand -- psychopaths are emotionally underdeveloped and/or emotionally dissociated (albeit cleverly manipulative and intellect-dominant) humanoids with one-channel minds some of whose "incoming information" channels (e.g., moral intelligence, empathy, and sense of integrity) are unawakened or clogged with dysfunctional programming from who-knows-where, and so, distorted and so, only humanoid. There's something humanoid about their brain functioning. Their, "Never Enough" conditioning sucks hard on the "wealth and power" channel, and may suck it with enthusiasm to the point of killing the host -- and harming themselves, in the process -- but that may not seem to matter, to them, because their moral intelligence is limited. Dinosaurs.

There is a way to bring on-line and balance the intelligences -- but you've got to want to. You've got to see bringing your intelligences on-line as an advantage.

"At no time in the world will a man who is sane overreach himself, overspend himself, overrate himself." (Lao Tsuh)
