The Dept. of State of Confusion
To: Anyone with open eyes.
is the natural state of the world. No one knows what will happen next.
The accepted model of the universe is always being redefined.
The status quo is always in a state of flux. The experts
are always ready with the next best thing. (pun intended.)
These same experts are in a constant disagreement about
what the best thing is. They rarely even agree on what is really
happening right now.
There is an argument at the moment about whether or not we are suffering
from self induced global warming or a natural progression to a geological
age of tropical climate ... or is it our introduction to the next
ice age. Any of these hypothesis, theories, speculations can find
an accredited scientist as an advocate ... or opponent.
the point? The point is that there is no one who knows what is really
going on. The point is that we are stuck with handling the unexpected
whether we have an expert, a philosophy, a religion, an
ideology, an education or some other explanatory framework to use
as a life map. The point is that there are too many variables in the
world to feed into some computerthat will predict the future. The
point is that we have to deal with it whether we understand it or
not. The point is that you still have to decide what you will do,
whether you use your own judgment or that of someone else.
world IS in a state of confusion, always has been, always will be.
It is SUPPOSED to be, it is made that way, dealing with this confusion
is part of our job of survival. Its not so bad really, most
of the time, it definitely keeps things interesting.
Every time some person or group attempts to put the world in
order, the result is a disaster. Remember two guys by the last
names of Hitler and Mussolini who made the trains run on time and
who decided that they knew best who should live or die. Remember just
a few years ago an entity called the USSR that thought that there
should be state regulations for everything.
State of Confusion has existed since the beginning of time. It even
participated in the formation of time, universe and life. It changes
form all the time. It is always there whether we recognize it or not.
Deal with it.
