The realist and the idealist

PHYSICAL SCIENTISTS ARE AT HOME IN THIS WORLD; THEY WANT TO UNDERSTAND IT AND MAKE THE MOST OF IT, THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN ESCAPING FROM IT TO AN IMAGINARY IDEAL WORLD OR TO HEAVEN

     Physical scientists, be they physicists, chemists, biologists, geologists and astronomers and applied scientists, such as hi-tech folks, engineers, medical doctors etc. are at home in this world; they are happy in their skin; they are not motivated to reject this world and their selves and flee to imaginary ideal selves, ideal worlds or to imaginary gods and their imaginary heaven. They are realists.

    I, on the other hand, rejected my body hence rejected the material world and seek existence that is not based on body, matter, space and time; I fled from science, even though I find it easy to do. I am a person searching for an alternative to this world. I am an idealist. I have been so since age six when I began elementary school.

     I am not at home in this world; something tells me that I am an alien here and that my real home is in the nonphysical world, aka spirit world, but where is that spirit world, is it a mere dream, wishful and magical thinking? I find it difficult to accept extant religions answers hence I declared myself agnostic by age fourteen.

    There are realist scientists, business, and practical folks who are at home in this world and the idealist, some philosophers (I could have written Arthur Schopenhauer’s books), who are not at home in the egos’ bodily world.

     Who is right? I do not know; I am just stating the two types of people I see in our world.

THE AMERICAN SOCIAL SCIENTIST IS A EUNOCH

     The American social scientist is a eunuch; he observes his evil society, describes it and knows that what it is doing, discriminating against Black folks, is wrong and keeps quiet about it. Well, it is not enough to describe extant society as it is, if you find its behaviors disgusting you must say so and do something to bring about social justice.

     The USA is an evil society and if you keep quiet you are merely hastening its collapse; it must be changed and made a fair society if it is to live longer.

LIKE MY WARRIOR ANCESTORS I AM A VERY AGGRESSIVE PERSON

     On the surface I seem polite but if you did something that I felt is unfair to me my aggressive part comes out and your death would not satisfy me.

     If I am standing in a line and you try to jump the queue, I will ask you to go back behind me. If you keep me waiting for a long time while I am in a line to get to you for your services, I tend to feel offended by you and tell you so.

      Whereas I am a friendly man and get alone with most people, I am hostile to anyone who offends me; I want all white folks who discriminated against me dead! I refuse to forgive them. For now, I get back at them by writing about them, showing how evil and despicable they are, but eventually, however, only the collapse of their racist empire would satisfy me; I want the USA replaced with a love-based society, a social democracy where we all pay the school fees of all kids through university and provide all persons with healthcare.

     Being honest requires me to accept that I am an extremely aggressive person; one must be truthful to who one is; I am not one to hide my true feelings.

     I do not buy social science’s environmental determinism that says that the environment determines people hence absolves people of moral behavior. Yes, our world affects us, but we are choice making animals.

    To the best of my knowledge, I have never consciously done something that I believe is wrong; at age eight, while living with my grandparents, I took a few pennies from my grandfather’s table and used them to buy my favorite candies, butterscotch candies; to the present I have felt guilty for that singular theft. Beyond that I have never taken something that does not belong to me. I had the opportunity to steal; my mother had a lot of money; money was everywhere in her room, and I could have taken some and she would not know it; I always asked, and she gave me what I asked for.

     I have not consciously done anything harmful to other people.

     I assume that all people are like me. White people are human beings and, as such, are choice making creatures; they deliberately chose to be racist, fully aware of the harm they do to Black folks.

    Imagine what they did to African Americans’ self-esteem, damaged; for that alone they ought to be punished, sent to hell; there is no such thing as hell.

     What we can do to them is working to change their satanic society and turn it to Christ like society where we are like the Good Samaritan and help the sick and make sure that all adults are gainfully employed (white folks deliberately keep black folks unemployed to make them waste their lives and take refuge in alcohol and drugs, which is evil behavior).
