Quote As the cogs of the Gregorian calendar shift into another numerical gear, RM has recently been considering the cultural swamp that is the social media and my disenchantment with its seething, babbling and incessant content. This insight of Jasun Horsley focuses that view sharply:"Too much cultural immersion is no doubt accentuating the focus on the negative in a way that isn't necessarily productive. Judging by the sort of cultural entertainment we choose, we also wallow in dark stuff to distract us from our own darkness."He argues that culture is seeded with all kinds of dark memes and 'realities' that distract us from focusing on the dark aspects of our own psyches, and thus prevent us facing and releasing them,"These psychological and social principals are understood well enough to be applied and so, of course, they have been. A large part of cultural engineering has to do with seeding us with fantasy-based fears that, over time, give rise to the social realities that control us."Social engineering, by way of financial, physical, spiritual and psychological manipulation are key components in the operations of those who would seek to control Mankind (the various methods of which have been touched on frequently at the RM site). Such is their pervasiveness, the awakening individual may well be compelled to ask, who is writing the script? This leads me inevitably to consider those works with which I am currently engaged and how important it is to focus on writing one's own script and not participate in those scripted realities provided by the usual outlets as exemplified by the social media (Faceborg and Twatter to name but two of the main culprits).
