Why we are all ‘blind’, or at least – most of us are ‘blinkered’, at this present time, in our human history! Because, we are personally ‘irresponsible’ – not fit for purpose in global (globally) terms, "clever imbecile’s", living in – "a closed system of thought". Ref, A.Koestler.
"The mentality of a person who lives inside a closed system of thought (‘conviction’ vs ‘reason’ or within/in the – ‘leap of belief/faith’, ‘conviction’, or ‘primitive science’, or in the state of ‘anthropological anomie/anomy’), can be summed up in a single formula. "He can prove everything he believes and he believes everything he can prove". The closed system sharpens the faculties of the mind, like an over-efficient grindstone to a brittle edge, it produces a scholastic Talmudic, hair-splitting, brand of cleverness, which affords no protection against committing the crudest imbecilities. People with this mentality are found, particularly often, among the intelligentsia. I like to call them the clever imbeciles, an expression, which I do not consider offensive, as I was one of them".
And, Colin Renfrew ‘Prehistory’ – My note, a ‘matrix in global understanding’ and the individual ‘responsible’ global consciousness, abridged, see, ‘books’. "’Realities’ of the modern world are institutional facts – products of concepts and social relationships worked out a millennia ago in prehistoric times. Cities of Sumer or of Mesoamerica and the (compelling) belief systems of Karnac or of Teotihuacan. We should recall them, at a time when globalisation is complete, and there is uniformity in the contemporary world".

Naturism. Naturist. Nihilism. http://luckyme0.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!A18BF3FCC5E126A2!858.entry this is to be improved, and corrected, as part of ‘the nature/morality within natural evolution’, as in whales and dolphins – altruism, even they show it! – ‘primitive man had a ‘morality’. Some religionists are unable to see beyond the closed system, or it is, by its very ‘nature’ – much more difficult for them!? Nihilism is to be included, as is unfounded derogatory, and demeaning, to the naturist and the ‘so called’ nihilistic. The religionists are concerned about ‘ethos’ in Schools or a lack of ethos, choosing religious dogma for this, which most have now grown out of: due to an inherent, blatant, and obvious experience, of most within the ‘educational religious framework’. Tradition is mostly recognised as being cruel, fairly ghastly, and has on the whole – ‘no great exemplary legs to stand on’!
