The sacred is profane, and at the root of why ideology is inherently divisive. Divine “truth” claims represent a delusion and ignorance which cannot but claim that those without or in opposition to it are either lost in the best case, or the evil enemy in the worst; one of which shows high arrogance and disdain, the other the willingness to harm with moral certainty.
The universe has no morality, no ethics, no special revelations for those who can “see”. As the logic keeps circling in my head—if there were a right way and we’d found it, it would all already be the way we want. But it isn’t, and instead we have chaos and indeterminacy as our engines of consciousness, growth, change, and creativity.
If the universe were perfect, and wholly ordered and controlled… It would have no movement, no force, no change, no causality, no entropy, no time… It would be perfectly still, perfectly safe, perfectly known, and nothing at all would happen. If a perfect universe did exist in a multiverse, it would destroy itself the moment it came into being, having no further reason to exist.
If there is a blessing to be had, it’s that it’s all based on corruption… That all truth is subjective and temporal… That we cannot ultimately know all, because to be omniscient is also to know nothing and lose all frame of reference necessary for knowledge to exist.
This is a species that still wants God and Newton to be correct… That still cannot let go of wanting there to be inherent purpose and meaning, and so unintentionally causes itself the majority of sorrow known in all history in its efforts to find this perfect truth.
If the universe is magic, it’s not because we make up bullshit truths we wish were the case, but because we have the option to make them up. But we still hold on to the idea that these made up concepts are real; so much so that we are the architects of our own unnecessary annihilation.
The sacred is profane… And it is destroying us.
About the author:
Glen Allan is a ridiculous person with thoughts and ideas which fly in the face of normal convention and challenge many assumptions about what people generally think of as reality.
He recognizes that many people will either disagree or claim the ideas to be founded in delusion, and only has to say that he'd like it if you could try to realize the world might not be what you think it is.
