Unification of the Opposites - Part I

In this piece, I'm going to talk about climate change alarmism and climate change denial and how both are imaginary projections which emerge due to a fear of death. Or a fear of psychic change - to turn around and look in a new direction, in case something was missed. I miss these things by not paying enough attention toward the whole of the world and by walking with a poor attitude I could quickly improve if I were brave enough. Fear of death is driving this.

I'll talk about crossing a psychic boundary, a frontier where science fears to tread, yet exists as an objective fact, just not materially. Science is not always scientific - if something cannot yet be measured, yet happens, then it is dismissed as pseudo science and not something that requires further attention. But it happened. 

Climate change alarmists do have a point, not that I agree with it, and I do understand them. Climate change deniers have not even reached this point yet though so have no way of understanding the alarmists collective fear and dismiss it as a form of madness or a cult. 

Both are highly active in making a terrible mistake within their own 'household', by not looking deeply and authentically at what is at stake with the attitude of a hero. The hero knows there are no guarantees and by crossing a new threshold, may never be able to return. This hero's journey is missing from the lives of modern man. (or woman, if a member of the People's Front of Judea). And leaves the world in eternal conflict where none is required. 

No more hero's anymore, we are scared of death, so we do our violence. This is another exposition of the violent outcomes from an image of the world we call climate change due to imaginary limited resources. No one wants to be the hero in their own adventure anymore. What is required for unification?

A psycho-analysis of the extremism called climate change alarmism delivers the following:

  1. A system wide fear, of something latent and scary in the collective of people. An objective fact, but of the collective psyche. A fear of death. A formally trained psychologist will say the schizophrenic patient is imagining the voices. But to the patient, it is very real indeed.... an objective fact. Is it any wonder science is unable to find a cure?
  2. This hidden fear gets projected onto the world as reckless economic growth using limited earthly resources, which is quite a surprise given the more we grow the less is required. The alarmists desperate call, using extreme measures with impunity, is that this so called growth must be stopped because God(or whomever or whatever) did not provide enough to sustain it.
  3. This harmful growth is blamed superficially on so called capitalism in spite of there being no capital involved directly. The largest components involved are common resources put there by nature for all to share, if we so choose.

So, despite the science which is wholly fraught on both sides, neither is carefully looking at the totality of it with a whole unified world view. Both are driven by doctrine. The one being scientific religiosity, the other being religious scientism.

That is, as a 'visionary rumour'. And these rumours are strong indicators of an important problem, going unattended, yet extremely difficult to put into words or have a rational dialog about.

And even superb experts are not enough to get over that enormous hurdle

So it is not just science we need, but meta-science. Or a way of talking about the world in totality and with universal meaning which all people can understand without conflict. Where neither a religion or science can help us.
