Changing Consensus Reality

Are you old enough to remember the social fall out from John Lennon’s statement, “The Beatles are more famous than Jesus” ??? I don’t know how to do the math on that, but I have suspicion that is likely accurate. Assuming over time, interest in religion declines, Beatle songs persist, that statement could be more true over time? I still know some folks that are devoted to their faith who would take offense of that concept. My friends in Europe, even those that practice a faith, would be less offended than those here in the Bible belt. Membership in churches has declined, and that had been a steady thing before even COVID. That’s a thing. The world is changing. It has always has.

The thing about society, or societies, is that there is a enculturation process; citizen must be educated to the primary paradigm in order for systems to function at their optimum levels. As societies fragment, systems start to fall in disrepair and people stop participating. I am not saying the fragmentation process is bad. So, if i just examine youtube for a moment, there are people I like, and I would like to support, but I am not able to support everyone I like. I, too, am participating in this game. Naturally, I would like my writing to be successful. There is the equivalent of a like button. You could clap if you like.

I led with the above to bring you here. What if Star Trek was the paradigm we need to advance into to rise to the next level of being? What if that is the actual reality frame we are moving into? John Lennon said the Beatles were more famous…
