Why are we all so angry? Where does this anger come from? I have been thinking about this for some time and have come to some conclusions.
First, some background:
My grandfather, a Theosophist, use to sit me on his knee and try to explain to me that every physical thing we know, or know of, is made up of different densities of gas. This is well illustrated by sitting on the beach and gazing out over the ocean on a hot, sultry day. On such a day, the horizon blurs and you cannot tell where water ends and air begins. The same thing can happen between water and ice.
Now, these many years later, we understand through thermodynamics that every thing we know, or know of, is also different densities of energy. Energy that vibrates and pulsates. Vibrations and pulsations that create, in the aggregate, a measurable "Cosmic Vibe." We need look no further than the moon to see the effects of a stellar body's magnetic field on the earth and on us. The effect is real and visceral and cannot be denied.
When I first saw a nighttime desert sky the creation of astrology and astrological figures became perfectly clear to me, for the desert sky is so clear and stars so abundant that they become three-dimensional. They have depth and breadth. It's as easy to lie on your back and see figures in the stars as it is to see them in the clouds. They appear so close that you can touch them. Certainly, feel them.
I believe that in the distant past mankind could actually feel the magnetic fields, the "vibes", of the planets as they crossed the sky. Over the millenia our bodies and our psyches became so attuned to the cosmic vibes, this cosmic rhythm, that our bodily functions, even our peace of mind, became totally in sync with the cycles and vibes of the planets and the earth.
And the point is?
We have so cluttered our environment with all manner of radio waves and electromagnetic fields that the cosmic vibes essential to our health and well being are as polluted as the air we breath and the water we drink.
There is virtually no place left on earth where we can escape being bombarded by microwaves. They rain down on us from satellites above. They are blasted throughout the environment from cell phone towers, television and radio transmission towers, all sort and manner of citizen band radio, short-wave radio, magnetic fields from power lines, the power grid, your computer, your cell phone, microwave oven and even your toaster.
They create an artificial vibe that keeps us on edge, that keep us off-balance, that keep us fearful and angry. Add to that the artificial chemicals we eat and drink, noise pollution, visual pollution, general confusion and an over-populated planet and it's a wonder there aren't more people randomly killing and chewing off people's faces.
George Carlin use to liken America to water going down a drain. As it nears the center it spins faster and faster until it's finally gone. I fear that is now a prescription for all of mankind.
