The last 2,000 years have seen periods of endless selfish religious and spiritual propaganda in writings made by most people, most of it materialistic, nationalistic and in some instances basically untrue and wrongly motivated. This culture was a clamor mostly motivated by the fact that this was an era of war and for the strongest empires to amalgamate more and more territory. However such aggressiveness in the world was an important development as this was the only way of bringing the civilization that we enjoy to-day.
Unconsciously our past history affects the way in which many articulate their ideas in the same degree it influences the capability of people to understand and imbibe new knowledge. The best asset we now have as Scholars of Wisdom is world history which is now abundantly available to us. This vast resource for study of human consciousness was not available to our ancestors yet I wonder how they were able to sharpen their own enlightenment to such unfathomable degrees such as has never been experienced since their existence. In this I mean men like Socrates, Plato, Moses the Prophet, Zoroaster, Shiva and Buddha among many others who appeared way ahead of their own time.
Having been a writer for one month, many questions have popped up in my tiny head. Many a time have I wondered why it has become so hard for the modern mind to read anything that is longer than two paragraphs? I am yet to find an answer to that. I myself experience the laziness that shows up as I try hard to stay awake when reading stuff. Something is wrong with our generation. Or maybe the rapid progress in technology has caused a degradation of the brain power of us human beings.
I think the more technology we have become exposed and an influx of information has certainly worked to dull our intuitive faculties such that it’s harder to learn much to-day.
