When using a phrase like “divine will,” most people will immediately presume that I am thinking in terms of two isolated kinds of will, with one kind of will being divine and with the other kind of will being something other than divine. To a certain extent, that is correct (yet notably imprecise). So, to be more precise, there is a very inclusive category that I am calling divine will and there are distinct subcategories within that larger category, such as statements that people make about divine will or statements that people make about other kinds of (“less than divine”) will.
Divine will is a reference to all of what is actually happening. One of the things that can be happening is that various people will be talking about their own isolated will (“my will”). Their claims about their ego’s will or their social persona’s will may be in conflict with what is actually happening (or in conflict with other people’s statements about their personal will). Their whole commentary on “will” is based on presumptions about some fundamental reality to their own social persona or projected identity.
Beyond various statements about personal will can be the subjective experience of willingness or motivation. The experience of motivation is not a primary topic of this exploration, although it is notable to contrast any experience of actual motivation (as in actual emotion) as entirely distinct from what anyone may or may not say about their experience of motivation or will or intention or purpose.
So, when it is the divine will for someone to make statements about their intentions, then that is what happens. Some fraction of statements about intentions may be made in distress or terror. Someone may project claims of intentions that they expect to be to their advantage to project. They may even attempt to distract from or deny other intentions that they expect it would be best to keep secret or unnoticed.
Divine will does not need to be spoken. Maybe people will say that certain actual things are “not divine will.” Maybe people will make comments about outcomes that are allegedly not present yet are somehow “divine will.” All the comments that are actually made must be divine will or else they would not be made.
Further, all instances of speaking (in regard to absolutely any topic) are divine will. Deceptive statements and misdirecting statements are divine will. Silent action (as in anything from unannounced breathing to unannounced typing) is divine will. Sincere statements are divine will, even when naive or delusional. Honest, perceptive statements are also divine will.
Simply put, the words “divine will” can just refer to a recognition of what is actually happening. If someone has been confused about something, but then reaches a new state of understanding, then say can say that they have finally perceived divine will.
Consider that a huge amount of social interaction is to suppress the recognition of divine will. Those in the lower-ranking positions of any social hierarchy, such as all children, may be targeted with the programming of various doctrines, value systems, and paradigms. Then, after a central committee agrees on some curriculum and programming to present, instructors can be trained and then paid to go out and present the doctrines in social rituals of indoctrination.
The children can be presented information to memorize. They are pressured to focus on the information and then compete with each other to blindly repeat that information with the greatest amount of consistency with the instructor’s delivery.
If we label the instructor as a science instructor, that does not make them competent in science. That labeling does not imply that the children will be verifying or critically examining any of the doctrines presented. Indoctrination rituals focus on memorization and blind repetition. The children are programmed with bias about what is important and how to relate to or label whatever they witness.
For instance, they may be taught of two verbal categories such as matter and energy. The materialist model is that matter is real and fundamental, while energy is one possible quality of matter that comes and goes.
Or, a child may experiment with sunlight, a magnifying glass, some dry wood, and some water. They may discover that the wood is just a temporary arrangement that is relatively stable. The wood does not burn if simply exposed to sunlight (in contrast to human skin, which can actually get burnt just from sunlight exposure).
However, if the magnifying glass is used to refocus or reorganize the energy of the sunlight- to concentrate the field of energy in a particular way- then the sunlight can radically alter the wood. The wood can ignite and then radiate as heat and light, eventually leaving some lines of rising smoke and a pile of ash.
Where did the heat of the burning wood come from? What created the energy of the flame?
The dry wood was always a condensed field of energetic potential (which was then reorganized in to a less condensed form, radiating as heat and light). Matter is just one possible state of energy.
For instance, electrons are just energetic fields. The atomic compound known as carbon is just a set of energetic fields temporarily bonded together. If a proton is added to the compound known as carbon, we can call that new compound nitrogen. But the carbon did not “go anywhere.”
There never was some fundamental presence of carbon. There was just a stable temporary compound that we can label as carbon.
The materialist model implies (or presumes without considering any other option) that there are many isolated fundamental realities. There is the reality of carbon and the reality of nitrogen, but the two realities are completely distinct. Unfortunately for devotees of that model, that model is rather absurd.
Carbon exists to the same extent that a fist exists. It is just a temporary arrangement. It can be disrupted by the removal or addition of a type of energetic field called a proton.
Carbon is only a form. It is not a fundamental thing.
In fact, matter is not fundamental. Matter, such as hard crystalline solids and liquid crystal plasma gels, is just a particular category of forms of something fundamental.
So, divine will can include the organization of the capacity for language. Through language, conceptual models can be formed which classify matter and energy as two fundamentally distinct types of reality. Or, energy can be considered a very inclusive term that includes all condensed material formations of energy, such as an ounce of uranium or a gallon of propane or a pound of firewood.
Energy is fundamental. All materials are just relatively stable fields of energy.
A pound of firewood is not a very concentrated form of energy. A gallon of propane is more concentrated (and also rather unstable or flammable or volatile). Other forms of energy are extremely stable, yet also extremely concentrated. Only a very specific kind of energetic interference will release the energy that is condensed in an ounce of a certain isotope of uranium. Different isotopes (forms of uranium) may have very different levels of volatility.
How do we know that uranium and carbon are not fundamental? Because there are different subcategories of each broad category. There are three natural isotopes of uranium, plus there is “depleted uranium” and so on.
There are also different isotopes of carbon, like carbon 12, carbon 13, and carbon 14. All of those are carbon, but each of them are distinct. They have distinct properties energetically and physically, such as mass. Only carbon-14 is radioactive (unstable).
So, carbon and uranium are categories of energetic formations. There are subcategories of various types of uranium just like there are various types of carbon.
In general, some energetic formations are quite stable, like the most abundant forms of the compound carbon (carbon-12 and carbon-13). Also, the isolated field of a proton is quite stable. Other energetic formations or fields are rather unstable, such as what are labeled as a neutrino or a positron.
Some formations are quite simple, like a chunk of coal or diamond. Other formations are amazingly complex, like an apple tree or a mushroom or a mammal or an international system of wealth redistribution.
In language, people can be programmed with the idea that their personal will is somehow isolated from or even contrary to divine will. There are a variety of experiences that someone might have and some of those can be selected to glorify and others to vilify or demonize or suppress.
In popular indoctrination rituals, children can be programmed to socially project submissiveness and conformity to social norms. If the FDA is glorified as an operation of unbiased political integrity and scientific infallibility, then the FDA can be used to pressure the masses to make certain presumptions about what is possible or impossible.
If the holy FDA announces that scurvy is a powerful demon that can possess humans, then the idea may be accepted simply based on presumed credibility (and repetition by an authority that is presumed to be credible). Really, the idea is being promoted through bribery and intimidation.
“Accept what the holy instructor presents and you will be socially rewarded with validation. Question what the holy instructor presents and you will ignored or even ridiculed or expelled, bringing shame and stress to your family. You do want our class to have the highest grade-point average and win the pizza contest, right?”
But is scurvy really a mysterious and incurable demon that possesses and then eats people? The social hysteria around the possibility of social persecution may distract most people from such an inquiry. We may be programmed that scurvy is terrifying and dangerous and incurable. If those details are “on the test,” then an effective indoctrination ritual will program the target population to fixate on only those details, obediently memorize them, then blindly repeat them.
The masses may be programmed in regard to how people should always be. For instance if people should always be honest, then it would be a serious accusation to claim that the FDA might be very slightly biased or even occasionally just a tiny bit imprecise in their published doctrines.
Through a phenomenon known as the Stockholm effect, a socially powerful group can impose its military and economic might on another group, often resulting in a display of submissiveness, loyalty, and even devotion by the oppressed group. If people should ever experience shame or social anxiety, then it would be a great violation of social expectations to socially display skepticism or curiosity in regard to the precision of the doctrines publicized by a holy tyrant such as those people doing business as the FDA.
Is it divine will for the FDA to exist? If the FDA exists, then that is divine will.
Is it divine will for the FDA to persecute those who attempt to challenge the social and legal dominance of the FDA? If that is what happens, then that is divine will.
Is it divine will for public indoctrination rituals to glorify holy rebels and then program the masses that, if they ever discover that the FDA is not entirely operating how people should always operate, they should protest and campaign and reform to make the FDA back in to how it allegedly used to be or otherwise in to how it should always be? If that is what happens, then that is divine will.
The masses are programmed to vilify certain patterns of activity or historical figures. They are also programmed to glorify certain social personas and then project those personas as their own. In other words, the masses are programmed to operate according to certain narratives or scripts or prescriptions or roles.
If people have been socially programmed that it is heroic and glorious to reform social institutions, then many will. If they have been effectively programmed to protest whatever patterns of behavior are defined as injustice, they will. If they have been effectively programmed to campaign for whatever is defined as justice (or even as “divine will”), then they will.
Should programming exist? Should rituals of social indoctrination exist? If it is divine will for something to exist, then it will exist, at least as long as it is divine will for it to exist.
The recognition of divine will is a rather simple thing. It is accepting reality as being however it is (without any bias toward how reality allegedly should be or any bias away from how reality allegedly should not be). That may be an extremely rare development, at least in certain modern cultures.
Why? Because if may be divine will that extremely effective methods of programming the masses are invented and implemented. The systematic obscuring of divine will may be one of the most obvious realities in regard to the observable results of various social institutions.
“Only a certain portion of what is should be. Only a certain portion of what should be is.”
The targeted populations are trained to focus on certain issues, to memorize and study those issues in programmed ways, then to blindly repeat various doctrines about those issues, then finally to expect social validation for their displays of loyalty and conformity to the holy doctrines of the dominant social institutions. They are given a script to memorize and a role to perform.
Note that classrooms do not have conflicting authorities. The central committee presents the instructors with the curriculum and the answer keys. The instructor simply validates answers that match the relevant answer key.
Another obvious sign that someone is deeply programmed by social indoctrination is a resistance to the fact that there are a diversity of opinions about a a diversity of topics. If there is a display of hysteria that some people apparently do not think that transgender rights is the single most important issue for all 7 billion humans on the planet, then that is a sign. Or, if there is a tantrum of ridicule to shame people who are totally ruining everything by focusing way too much on media celebrities or pro athletics or pop music, that is also a sign.
If there is a social projection of the idea that people should be a particular way and should not be a particular way, that is a sign. If there is a ridiculing of systems of indoctrination because “they should not exist,” that is a sign. If shaming others and bullying others should not exist, that is a sign. If there is a sincere hysteria about how taboos should not exist, that is the hypocrisy of a taboo against taboos.
Irony is not hypocrisy. If the pope stands on the balcony of a massive castle and says that both inequality and coercion are morally wrong and anyone who does not condemn both inequality and coercion will be executed in a holy ritual of public human sacrifice, that is ironic. It is only hypocrisy if the pope believes the script he is reading.
If an actor in a play screams that “dishonesty is wrong and people should not pretend to be other people who they are not,” that is ironic. That is a person pretending to be someone else. The entire context of a theatrical production is that it is all staged. It is all a pretense. It is all scripted. It is all fake.
However, if the actor does not know that he or she is just an actor, that is hypocrisy. If the one reading the programmed script does not recognize the script as a script, that is hypocrisy.
Divine will is a very simple thing. The recognizing of divine will may not be so simple. If the divine will is for the socially powerful to program the masses to obscure or vilify or deny divine will, then that may be exactly what is happening.
Once there was an actor playing the role of pope. The actor walked on the the fake balcony and said very passionately to the audience “people should not pretend to be someone that they are not. Theatrical productions not only should not use fake balconies, but should not exist at all. The FDA is a holy government agency that has an absolute monopoly on scientific credibility because the scientific method is a very mysterious demon that only possesses a very small group of people, all of whom are either FDA officials or have made massive bribes and/or campaign donations to those who regulate the FDA. Also, insincere parody is wrong and shameful and so only people who have been issued an FDA license for parody should be taken seriously as comedians. Unlicensed comedians must be immediately executed in public rituals of human sacrifice or else all of humanity will be harshly punished for eternity by a three judge panel composed of Santa Claus, Saint Peter, and the ancient Egyptian deity Ma’at, who also weighed the souls of the recently deceased to determine whether or not they would be allowed in to heaven (but for thousands of years before her name was later changed to Saint Peter).”
FALSE: Anubis was NOT the one who made the final judgment. The final judgment was made by the goddess Ma’at, who is known for her “scales of justice.”
Some modern temples of the ancient Goddess Ma’at (also known as Justitia, etc):
