Let us say there are two levels of What Is: surface reality, and what lies under the surface — aka what’s behind the curtain.
Living and working in either venue, a person is, to a significant degree, immersed in What Is. He doesn’t particularly notice this. But if, one day, he gets it into his head that he wants, somehow, to venture beyond both versions of What Is, something happens to him:
He becomes aware of a magnetic pull back to reality. He feels the magnetic field exert its force on him. Because reality isn’t only What Is. It’s also a magnetic or gravitational Insistence. “You must remain loyal to reality.”
The overwhelming majority of people heed this dictate. They believe they should remain loyal. They believe being faithful to some version of What Is is their duty. This is the glue that holds societies together. It’s a kind of magnetic contract.
“All right, now, you’re going to live on planet Earth. Part and parcel of that arrangement is, you’ll stay loyal to the reality that’s presented to you. If you begin to stray, you’ll feel a reminder. A force will pull you back. You’re in a field, and the deal is, you won’t move outside it.”
As I say, as long as a person lives in the field or even probes behind one level of reality to find a deeper level, he doesn’t experience what the field is doing. But if he looks for a way to go beyond all versions of reality, he experiences the magnetic force.
Moving past all versions of reality means: inventing your own.
If you do that, whatever your work is, you’re now in the arena of art. Creation. Imagination.
And you receive “a loyalty review.”
At that point, you have two basic choices. You can retract and duck back into the field, or you can walk out and reject the incursion on your freedom and power.
The loyalty oath is a con. It’s a hoax.
The style and form of society is always a shorthand reduction. It asks people to perform according to oversimplified standards.
To justify this insistence, propagandists assert that simplicity is best. What they really mean is: shrinking the dimensions of your mind makes things easier. This demeaning task is accorded the quality of holiness. All organized religions of any size promote such hogwash and call it insight.
Living in surface reality, discovering the deeper level of reality, inventing your own reality … and being able to exit and enter from all these states, by choice, is the “royal road,” and the challenge that has no name, no banners, no consensus, no authorities.
