1) Dissolution = dissolve
2) Disillusion = end of illusion
a) for a thing to be filled, it must need to be emptied.
b) for a thing to be true , the falseness needs to be ended
The state of being that our USA finds herself enduring is in a depleting, dissolving condition that is forward-moving. The forward direction is in acceleration towards an 'end point.'
Like water that must reach a specific temperature to boil, like a sneeze that must reach a specific degree of itch in order to discharge, or a cloud to acquire a specific amount of moisture saturation to produce rain, our civilization of human beings, not only Americans -- all people -- are accelerating towards a change point.
This is evident in our incessant obsession with speed; speed of action, speed of speech, speed of projected images on TV, speed of expecting things to happen, speed of anger rising when our expectations are not met fast enough.
The acceleration is exemplified by the observable increase in individual human unrest and collective human unrest. Counteracting our natural preference of unity we had before we divorced ourselves from nature, the nemeses appear in the forms of automated phone menus, self-service gas stations, self-check-out grocery stores, automobiles fizzing around with only one person inside, neighboring single-family homes of people who don't even know what the faces of those living a few houses away from them even look like, let alone what those persons' names are, or anything at all about those neighbors, and -- largest of all -- the blatant refusal of awareness that other life forms are essentially part of us.
Collective human respect for each other and earth's life forms appears to resemble those last drops of water in an evaporating well -- so scarce. The disconnect runs deep, and we are feeling that separation pain as though we are being fatally extracted from the fabric of social togetherness -- our roots being pulled out of the ground.
So, add to the malaise of individual disconnect, the extreme confusion caused by our social organizations of our collective body of people; i.e., government, social services, medical services, financial services, and the result is a complexification that renders us all perplexed, overwhelmed and extensively paralyzed. This degree of aggravation and loss of positive human potential and energy, is instigating the disturbance of the collective human condition. It is rising to the itch point of the sneeze that ends the irritation.
The megalomaniacal individuals and their power structures, ballooning under their own weight and crippling all below them, the Occupy Movement in the U.S., the violence of revolutions in nations around the world, look to me to be the human face, wrinkling deeply, eyes watering and squeezing shut for that colossal, eradicating sneeze.
Is it: 1) the cicada splitting its shell? 2) the butterfly emerging from the cocoon? or is it: 3) the self-induced annihilation of the most unharmonious, most evolved but least enlightened species on earth?
I hope the answer to the first and second questions is "yes," and the answer to the third question is "no," because human beings can be so very, very beautiful.
