Thurston’s Thoughts

Can’t Find the Reasons

Prohibited Knowledge

Are we defined by our knowledge or our lack of it? Our thoughts create a predisposition forming our perception which partitions our perspective to accept beliefs as truth despite contrary evidence as being observable and provisionally true. These ordained falsehoods or reflections of mysterious declarations are anesthesia to ignorance compelling rituals of conformity. Still, the hype is real promoting a reality of distorted dependencies habitually spread as fact. We adapt to our knowledge it does not adapt to us. Competing proposals can not only reveal proof but also disproof where clashes of facts collide.

Belief cannot supplant questions of fundamental disputes where assertions rely on the disputed contradiction with mostly our belief as the main validation. Lack of deduction induces conditioned assumptions from a selective criteria leading to the mass mania of fanatical conviction even if not strict adherence. A desperation to believe or sculptured explanation precedes the belief’s indoctrination. Psychosomatic experiences and social reinforcements confirms the psychological and emotional attachment further validating the belief. Extreme fear, panic, and anxiety historically are used to motivate irrational occurrences such as witch trials, McCarthyism of the 50’s, racism, economic forecast of doom, homophobia, religious extremism, partisan politics, and any square peg of fear in a circle of coercion or ignorance. 

These apprehensions are social distortions widely embraced to instill fear, obstruct change, or stimulate psychological innuendo. The expectation is worse than the reality because our minds has an unlimited ability to conjure up catastrophes of our fearful imaginations. Situational justifications accompany the irrational conformations necessary to suspend our moral sensibilities thus fueling our subjective agendas. This is how crusades, atrocities, and persecutions are pursued in a frenzy of rationalizations whereby the resulting actions are inconceivable and despicable. The concealment of such degeneracy generates a vehement denial to preserve dignity and separation from the evil done.

So the inconceivable which is undeniable becomes the unspeakable and oblivious revisionist minimalizations of regret. Time is not stagnant nor is change but our resistance to both are ghost of futility proving repeatedly that change occurs with us, around us, or without us but rarely by the compass of our permission. The circle of acceptance eventually increases according to expanded evidence beyond our belief to embrace an unquestionable truth. The mass hysteria is a panicked reaction to ideologies which challenge or alter our comfort or prestige creating uncertainty and a perceived anticipation of decline thereby rejecting truth and change while safely clinging to belief. 

Primitive instincts of fight or flight and self-preservation overwhelms our sensibilities into a raging crescendo of uncharacteristic hostilities as an outlet for rampant anxieties and insecurities. The unrelenting consequence of this is not only regretful actions but also distractions of negligence to pursue solutions. Change is a redistribution of circumstances and familiarity causing uneasiness and adaptation. The delay or prevention of change prolongs the benefit to those seeking to hoard power or privilege. Therefore, the crux of change is the balance of benefit sequestered and insulated by the status quo of established methods. Accordingly, any major change is usually by force or utter necessity against the gate keepers of authority and influence to reject prior beliefs and practices.

Discovery and exploration tethered to ancient and primitive ideologies and mass hysteria sabotages social progress. From days of old information was forbidden to the common folk as being too ignorant to comprehend. Thus, sacred knowledge required that belief was the only validation for inaccessible information fostering a dependent subjugation by illiteracy. Development of universal humanity suffered from the resulting caste systems of knowledge, wealth, and prestige. However, the contemporary equalizer is information is now abundantly available to most at our finger tips. So, as the questions continue, how much longer can we ignore the answers? A footnote of any civilization is its progress and knowledge.

Civilizations and their proclivities crumble over time when signs are ignored past a tipping point. The tipping point is upon us as our apathy and arrogance of entitlement will be the vanity of our failure. To preserve survival evolution must occur. If information and education erases the deficits of ignorance, deceit, and psychological control can ritual beliefs and indoctrinations continue to forbid progression? So, if it is available what is preventing our access except for our pursuit? If we can’t find the reason to thrive, we will have no reason to complain or for things to change.

If divided we stand, united we will fall when the excuses outweighs the reasons. The past contorts the future when the present is mired in obstructions to intellectual and social progression. How can we entertain a multitude of distractions but can’t find the reasons to avoid the implosion of society? Knowledge has always been power and possessing Knowledge always will be the advantage of those who know to rule those who don’t. The incentives are self-evident and the reasons are motivational persuasion to secure advantages beyond those subdued by ignorance. Arm yourself with knowledge and information as an antidote to ignorance and deceit or behold the liabilities with no good reason why.

     

Dark History Bright Future Anthem of Evolution- Hidden Systems

The current genealogical impression may betray its ancestries by appearance but not its DNA. In this context, likeness, in principle, is the disparity in recognizing differences, both yours and others. But, it ignores historical facts, lineages, and beliefs. Classifications, racial identifications, and social regulations are undergoing a revolution of revelations regarding misconceptions and dubious practices. The fear to scrutinize has been lifted by the dissonance of disparities attributed to discredited beliefs and ideologies.

A humanitarian, geopolitical, economic, and religious shift liberating the painful truth of centuries of deceptions, authoritarian control, psychological manipulation, and intentional scarcity is revealed. The repatriation has traditionally been of lands and resources, but this time it will be the untethering of the minds of the masses. The deformity of social evolution’s resulting awkward growing pains has expanded beyond the boundaries of its spell, breaching a new horizon of realization. This expansion of knowledge will unquestionably shake many beloved foundations and misconceptions.

The stale ideologies habitually observed no longer apply to the emerging reality of authentic free will. The free will to explore space outside our history and restrictions guided by our authentic internal compass expressing compassion as we would like to receive it. The racial, moral, and economic principles rooted in echoes of Roman society, religion, and exploitations are destined to erode, having reached the extent of this variation of its reincarnation. We must prevent the next variation by breaking free from its creeds and structures that are proving to be other than what we believe them to have been.

As a matter of consumption, we understand and often can see the effects on the body. However, not so much the consumption of the mind. As guardians of the mind, we too easily surrender the sanctity of our thoughts and beliefs to matters we have no understanding of. The banners of race, nationalism, and greed have amassed a tremendous toll upon humanity, whose veneer has worn thin. The army of humanity, not race or religion, in every corner of the world, has risen to challenge their regimes’ oppressive suffocation of their freedom, equity, and sovereignty.

In many ways, this book is about hidden systems and mentalities engineered and programmed to reproduce a minion class unsuspecting of the puppet show in which we perform. The consequence of social engineering produces the desired control disguised in many different ways in various societies, countries, and thoughts. Nevertheless, the funnel leads to the same construct, a paradigm of rituals reminiscent of a shrouded time lagging the current reality.

Truth is born of exploration in all areas of life. It must be evaluated to hold its integrity. So, just as we risk being wrong, we must also risk being offended in pursuing truth. Ignorance lounges wherever it finds no resistance.

Dark History Bright Future Anthem of Evolution- Book Description

Dark History Bright Future  Anthem of Evolution

Book Description 

Thurston presents a candid examination of the sociology of racism, modern social systems, primitive rituals, and religious manipulations cloaked in conformities of ignorance. This is a casual forensic inquiry of history, methodologies, ideologies, and consequences of racism, religion, and economics to formulate narratives leading to our modern challenges of divisiveness and conflict. The sanctity of ignorance must be individually and intellectually dissected for suggestive solutions and future perspectives to identify historical traps of distraction, dehumanization, and deceit.

The book’s goal is to stir discovery, self-evaluation, discussion, and the rejection of counter-productive ideologies, behaviors, and conformities designed for subjugation. Among the evaluations are suggestions for solutions understanding the context of time, genetic migration, economic motives, political influence, military conquest, spiritual corruption, and psychological captivity.

 Not surprisingly, these transcend race to maintain exploitation through servitude as essential to a ruling class heavily reliant upon etymological illiteracy. This anthem of evolution is a call to shed the mental shackles of forbidden curiosities and rational impossibilities. Dare to explore your beliefs as the iceberg of deception melts under factual scrutiny. This must have book is an expansive journey into the tip of this deception and ignorance binding us. Free your mind, un-shield your eyes, and hear clearly this resounding message.

Dark History Bright Future Anthem of Evolution- “African American”

Dark History, Bright Future-Anthem of Evolution by Thurston K. Atlas

Dark History Bright Future  Anthem of Evolution

Excerpts regarding the term “African  American” 

Page 176

Otherwise, there is a distinction such as African American or minority, not of lesser numbers, but as disadvantaged. Never just American. The Olympics is the only time we are simply American. No other race or nationality are referenced by a land many of them never visited and ties dating back over four hundred years. They at least have a country instead of just a continent of origin. However, many have populated this country to have the interim title removed from their designation, simply being called Americans.

Undoubtedly, the ability to Americanize one’s image for easier assimilation diverts attention from themselves, especially by ostracizing others, particularly Black people. Those who arrived by immigration now bemoan immigrants while concealing apparent hints of their immigrant origins.  White and light complexion immigrants easily assimilate into the white culture or middle class and are excluded from adverse comparisons and discrimination. Once incorporated, they quickly develop no allowances for a diversity of perspectives or cultures not rejected by their new identity and cultural spectacles.

Their culture is surrendered in exchange for a new identity welcoming them to the Americanized white subgroup. Not having their identity stolen but surrendered, they fail to see the damage and trauma caused by never feeling or escaping the prolonged ostracization our people have faced. Regarding the “African American” plight, they don’t know the half of it. The sting of the whip or the noose around the neck of it. They instead become members of the system by white association. The system and the integration become indistinguishable.

People are molded to be inflexible and dismissive, while systems are designed rigidly but fickle. Taking the country back for conservative values is maintaining the violation of church and state for religious values to mandate legislative foundations supplementing sociological biases. These customary biases and identities are preferred as normal behavior well entrenched, while any deviation is abnormal or fearfully anticipated. The imbalance that produces their comfort disregards the aggrieved party’s demand for consideration, essentially minimizing and dismissing claims with indignant outrage.

The way it has been is prone to narcissistic impositions by rejecting the evolution of intolerance and discontent to instead embracing inclusion. The majority inclination has shifted from the majority ideology of controlling minority populations. Yet, the now racist minority ideology resists the changing times seeking to rule the majority. The ignorance of the past attempts to paralyze the present and remains opposed and fearful of future possibilities and expectations. Redefining the constructs of society, self-identity, and equality is deemed a threat.

Marginalized society is no longer happy with whatever scraps procured, instead wanting whatever possibilities and considerations advantaged white’s receives. Wanting equilibrium of opportunity and social treatment impartially available and applied. The contempt and discontent are prevalent and pervasive on many levels regarding a biased irrelevant and suppressive application or standard.

However, a stark difference exists, whether it is gender inequality, pay inequality, religious discrimination, educational gaps, healthcare deficiencies, lifestyle orientation, and many others, not just racial profiling and social injustices. Moreover, many deep traumas have been directed towards all subgroups not representative of the dominant controlling group despite being members of other dominant subgroups such as educated, male, or the double whammy, Black and female. Every subgroup has a learned behavior with defining expectations and benefits and is subjected to judgment from other subgroups’ prejudices.

However, the problem arises when it minimizes or infringes on another subgroup to be defined by the standards beneficial to the dominant subgroup. Thus preferences are common to all humans or specific taxon, but the exercise of dominance and privilege where none exist based upon a manipulated interpretation or advantage violates humanity. Continued practice of this violation is not a deterrent for change, it invites it by unfairness. On the contrary, it dictates perseverance because to concede is to assure the imbalance of identity, perspective, and privilege continues.

Page 389

I have a theory, maybe a wacky theory but follow me. Suppose we travel back far enough to the origin of life in Africa. Wouldn’t that make everyone walking the earth African and all Americans African American? Suppose all bi-racial people claim their presumably socially dominant racial identity instead of the lowest relegation of their racial identity. Wouldn’t that make them white if they so choose?

Sort of the reverse one-drop rule where one drop of white blood would make you white or whatever race contributed to your identity. If Canaan was made Black by Noah to curse his father, Ham, then can’t all Blacks claim to be White being descendants of the pure seed of Ham directly from Noah or Canaan when he was white? What about as a descendant of Adam? Genealogy allows for claims of many variations of race or identity.

Furthermore, if people can choose to be non-binary, a singular person can identify as plural, and anyone can be white then why can’t Blacks claim to be any race, even white or no race, as a matter of self-identity, even for government purposes? Why not if it is based on self-identification or ancient history? So what is African American? Is it a color, a lineage, or a classification that secretly segregates us as a distinction other than American?

Look at any government form; under white, it does not have any distinction outside the collective family of white, none indicating origins or lineage. Maybe, everyone’s identity should be an x on forms to eliminate race as a consideration. Makes me wonder if race or gender is even needed since it is questionable what benefits the distinction brings. Arguably, it is more used for discrimination. This could indicate that some re-evaluating needs to occur when these terms have or should have no bearing on determinations or qualifications. But let’s go to the deep waters.

Case in point, to some the greatest President of all times, 45, who claims the confederate heritage and an all-American persona grandfather and grandmother was born in Kallstadt. But he claims white, not German or European. It goes unquestioned and is acceptable because, quietly, most designations of white fall in the immigrant category of impersonating a legacy of American heritage.

My grandmothers and grandfathers were born in Mississippi and Georgia, but I need to claim African American. Their parents and grandparents were born in America. It is a sly segregationist distinction where Black and brown people are further diluted as people of color. These distinctions are misleading, ambiguous, or flat-out lies. We are relegated to a continent or hemisphere, while other races belong to a country, province, city, or culture.

Whites can be of any nationality to claim white. All dark complexion people are not directly from Africa, although all humanity is from Africa, so how far back are we going? If that make all Americans African American by ancestry, whereas a naturalized African would be what? African Americans too, regardless of color. If born in Africa and naturalized in America, that seems to make you African American more than Black. But what that would make you is knowing your natural heritage, which we cannot claim. Still, their struggle is not removed from ours, our reference point is simply different.

Therefore African American signifies unknown origins and lost heritage. How many claim America as their homeland and heritage to take back America? But their roots don’t go back as far as ours in America? They will claim the country but not the atrocities. That would make America ours before it was theirs by way of their immigrant legacy. We have been the N-word, coons, coloreds, negroes, blacks, people of color, and African Americans in the ever-shifting saga of our assigned identity. I claim Black with pride just as others claim their distinction, even confederate, but they refuse to claim squatter.

Black is a legacy American whose ancestors were subjected to slavery, reminding me of my obligation to not defile their sacrifices and tribulations. The analogy is often inconsistent when attempting to retrofit an identity or association. By that metric, is there such thing as Confederate American or Immigrant American according to their heritage and ancestry? Most whites are of immigrant origins compared to descendants of slaves, but they also arrived on a boat, most after us. African American is furthering an insidious distinction that undermines the concept of equality. Minority applies to everyone from Black people to gender, disability, religion, and soon-to-be white in approximately thirty years.

Race is a delusion of numbers and classifications by disproportionate criteria. The technical distinctions defy logic while casually applied. By designation, the census and office of OMB consider African Americans to be anyone whose ancestors’ origins are traced back to the lower regions of Africa, below the northern portion or sub-Saharan. I would imagine even indirectly from another land. So realistically, African American is a polite way to say slave descendant. Everyone else on the globe can be considered white, even if from Africa.

By definition, it is firmly consistent a dark complexion person or so-called Black from the northern part of Africa is white by geography. So with the geographical origins set by that criteria, how does anyone else become classified as African American if not by color? The spectrum of color variations in all lands further extracts light complexion appeal as the overwhelming and overriding criteria simulating whiteness but not by geography. So by geographical designation as evidence, it reveals in general not where they hijacked us from but a dark skin aversion.

By the same curiosity, what slave trade or immigration globally have others undergone in four hundred and fifty years? Does it reflect their geographical origins for direct comparison to ours during the same period? That changes many things in the world, but many it doesn’t change. Globally connect the systems, ideological cultivations, and echoing beliefs throughout that time for an accurate portrait of comparison. From origin to evolution, follow the continuity of repetition over time. The repetition of time cast its shadow as truth without breath possessing only time with more assumed than spoken.

Page 399

This brings it back full circle to the descendant from slavery labeling disguised as African American. Maybe they need to know to exclude us rather than ensure we are included. White includes every light complexion nationality without further distinction whereby they are incorporated by deceptive but established means regardless of time or history in America. Skin tone grants automatic membership and privileges from day one. This is also true for other darker complexion nationalities so long as they are not Black.

Page 401

It would then seem culture not colorism is at play. It also confirms white is more of a social status of inclusion not a race. With African American meaning the descendant of slaves and white meaning everyone else, including descendants of slave owners, it also denotes us not being accepted as belonging on or from this land. White exclaim they need to take their country back, but it was inhabited when they arrived, but no mention of returning it and definitely not vacating it. But, we are welcome to return by boat to Africa when we have been here before almost everyone saying we don’t belong.

Relocated by slavery, our designation is the closest estimation of commonality, Africa, even if over four hundred years ago or more. But, African American also denotes being of unknown origins or lineage from a miscellaneous bin of humanity. It gets confusing because white is miscellaneously composed and defined only by what has not been included, Black people, ignoring genealogy. African American is an oxymoron. Africans suggest we don’t belong here, and American likewise suggest we don’t belong there. Yet, we are tolerated in America as orphans with no specific nationality or ancestral identity.

Dark History Bright Future Anthem of Evolution- Preface

 

Dark History, Bright Future-Anthem of Evolution by Thurston K. Atlas Dark History Bright Future  Anthem of Evolution

Preface

Thurston K. Atlas started a blog entitled “When Playtime is Over” to express his point of view on relevant topics and present an alternative voice. Thurston K. Atlas’s diverse life experiences and challenges provide a basis for his perspective he felt compelled to express. The author hopes that the perspectives and ideologies offered are used for motivation, contemplation, and progression. Thurston K. Atlas’ primary objective is to generate introspective thought, facilitate candid conversation, and arouse free-thinking perspectives.

This book is presented in a series of observations and commentary of perspectives intended to editorialize and illustrate the surface ramifications of underlying racial principles and ideologies. It further explores and challenges some long-accepted fundamental socializations and the consequences of adhering to these thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. The goal is conveying a deeper understanding. Part A is the conventional or historical perspective, while Part B is a companion article offering a more specific interpretation applying causation and intent, hopefully leading to awareness and solutions.

The articles in Part A illustrate factual experiences, while Part B stirs the sediment of its implementation and impact. The psychological and sociological dynamics causing and promoting racial discrimination also produce many other biases affecting various socially marginalized subgroups targeted by discriminatory treatment. These dynamics transcend racism and geography, but many of the solutions are similar since many of the root causes are comparable.

The primary goal is for you to include these ideas and considerations in your family and subgroup discussions, making the exchange a philosophical family affair. Finally, part C is a series of questions intended to encourage conversation to preemptively address issues clarifying possible actions, responses, and perspectives applied to real-world situations. Whatever your perspective, it should be factually and logically defensible but certainly withstand debate.

The discussion within the Black family is crucial as a rite of passage, survival, and recognition to avoid the distractions and traps that deplete our aspirations and progression. We must place the narrative in our hands, emancipated from the residue of slavery and focused on future prosperity. It is only a generation away if the proper approaches are applied. Applying enhanced knowledge, altered perception, and practical actions for those sufficiently determined and disciplined are the treasures that will summon fortune, astutely changing the Black condition.

The advantages of aggressive pursuit are undeniable, while the complacency of the past is inadequate. The absence of change prolongs assured damages, while the sluggishness of progress stalls optimism and is insufficient to execute solutions. We are all familiar with the old methods the same old results. Time to change the channel to visually, emotionally, and intellectually recalibrate our psychology, sociology, and methodology.

Hopefully, we will reconsider what we validate and from what we seek validation. We must visualize our objectives directing our actions toward achieving them. So, welcome to when playtime is over, where our goal is to stimulate thought and conversation, not to convert your perspective. Any persuasion is solely at your discretion and deliberation. So, let the discussions and transformations begin.
