“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.” — Eckhart Tolle,
“Instant Karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head” — John Lennon.
How would you get along with your sibling(s), parent(s), or any other person you’ve known for a long time — if you only met them for the first time today?
This is definitely a thought provoking question that many of us would instantly try to rationalize given the benefit of personal hindsight into our own past.
When asked such a theoretical question a significant number of us would immediately relate to parents and friends we currently know well and would try to update our evaluation of them using past associations and memories as a reliable index.
That approach works fine today looking back to a certain past we can reliably count on and relate to as well. But in this proposed kind of “clouded” social environment you are left to your natural instincts and gut feelings to figure things out as best as you possibly can.
All previous associations would be vague recollections. We would all live in a world of uncertainty, doubt, skepticism and mistrust. In a sense the way the world is today without the veil of vagueness. How can you effectively function if your psychological functions are running on empty?
Psychologists and psychiatrists offices , totally automated and run by humanoid robots, would be flooded with anxious and concerned people. Prescription drugs would be dispensed en masse and general populations of folks would be popping tranquilizers like tic tacs.
Such an existence and social structure would be doomed to failure since no one could be certain of anything. This Alzheimer- like society would function badly and eventually collapse.
Figuring out your crucial aspects and associations in your life every day and every minute would convert paradise into a prison.
