A Different Kind of Revolution

October 5, 2018

Assumptions about the nature of reality express as systems. Those systems take the form of those assumptions. So, in times past, even when you had a revolution, the new system would be a different form of the old system. A monarch would be overthrown, and an oligarchy would arise, and then the oligarchy would become a republic, and then the republic would become a dictatorship. You could think of these structures as different points of view of the same thing. They're different points of view of separation.

 

 

There's a new revolution. It's not a different form of the same assumption about the nature of reality. It's a different assumption of the nature of reality itself. This forms different systems, systems that we haven't seen in human history. These are unfamiliar systems.

 

Government isn't a bunch of people playing out roles. Government is the associations we make about a bunch of people playing out roles. For example, the power of the Supreme Court isn't the activity of some people in a room wearing silky black robes. The power of the Supreme Court is the associations that we make about the activity of some people in a room wearing silky black robes. That can have massive power if we believe it has massive power and no power if we believe it has no power. The associations are the power, and the associations are now changing. This is the revolution.

 

There's a different kind of revolution happening right now. It's not a revolution of form. It's not about outside things. It's not about titles, roles, systems, and so forth. It's not about apparatus. It's about associations. It's about the way that people define titles, roles, systems, and so forth. Those associations are changing, and that's creating a revolution.

 

This revolution isn't going to institute a different version of the same thing. This revolution is a revolution from the ground up. It changes the nature of the things that evolve out of it. This is a completely different kind of revolution.
