The Unity Religion v 23 chromosome freedom (+ podcast)
Plans are afoot in Auckland to turn it into the world’s ‘most liveable city’.
This is a prime example…
of the Unity Religion at work.
What is Unity Religion?
A mindset that says one way of thinking is enough.
A mindset that says one way of being is enough
It has the look of togetherness & shiny health.
So what exactly does a liveable city ‘look’ like? Apparently you see lots of people riding round on bikes (despite the fact that it rains a lot, is extremely hilly & very spread out).
In the Unity Religion, the media priesthood get behind an idea (no matter how nuts) & send out wave after wave of imagery until the new vision looks familiar & ‘normal’.
“At the moment there is a very vocal push for cycling friendly policies from Auckland Council and for some astonishing new projects that will pour millions into cycleways and the bizarre proposal to clip a cycleway onto the Harbour bridge.
As you will see, the bike spotting freaks as Cycle Action Auckland and Transportblog are talking out of their arsewhen they try and say cycling is an important commuter mode in Auckland“
The push of cycling is one small part of an agenda I call the ‘Fitness Cult’. This cult ‘fits’ extremely well into the new Unity Religion:
“fit (n.1) … “the fitting of one thing to another;” c. 1400 …
... “to marshal or deploy (troops);” … From 1580s as “be the right shape.”.
A fit is also a paroxysm which is not considered healthy in any way.
At the heart of the Unity Religion we see an IMAGE of togetherness …
created by people wearing
… similar ‘uniforms’,
… acting in similar ways &
performing similar activities.
The Unity Religion
It’s camera reliant.
It is an illusion of togetherness that actually prevents togetherness because it is based on looking and acting a certain way instead of building bridges to each other.
Touch and feel – the realm of the heart,
do not belong
in the Unity Religion.
Let’s look at the sacred relics of the Unity Religion and how worship is performed.
Members must choose
to look …
Members must choose
‘modified & re-worked’
Members must choose
And they must choose to adopt
no matter how
The Unity Religion demands that its members choose to sacrifice aliveness & its accompanying spontaneity for the …
The unity Religions creates smaller unified clusters or lumps …
“lump (v.1) … “to put together in one mass or group”.“
… sticky masses of …
… market-modified behaviour.
Recognisable signs that a lump is active include immaturity and lack of discernment.
Chump Lump: The new …
… babytalk – the words & intonation suggesting a young child is being included in a conversation.
Comedy Lump: The super-silly ..
… cringe-making, sarcasm-cruel, sexually-confusing & degrading comedy genre (directly related to the Chump Lump).
Green Lump: The eco-green …
… organic super-health cult – a marketing dream quite possibly driven by food giants like Monsanto corp.
… same-themed trauma.
New Age Lump: The belief of a dream existence created by wish-filled, …
… self-improved thinking.
Architect Lump: The adoption of super-sterile, sharp angled, human-unfriendly architectural norms to …
… homes & public buildings .
These lumps are everywhere. To locate them look for high visibility displays, listen for critical or sensational promotion & notice that sticky, gloopy feel which tells you that ‘unity’ is being created. Then stay well clear of it. It is dangerously yielding …
& very unforgiving.
So where does that leave us?
I think there’s another way. A very practical, viable alternative.
… 23 Chromosome Freedom.
We will be taking a serious-playful look at how things may actually work. And how we can harness this for a different kind of life, even amidst the destruction & decay going on around us..
23 Chromosome Freedom
says that by ourselves we are
23 chromosomes are half of what it takes to make something …
… new & fresh & vital & alive.
We ARE creators,
but only when we join
with another/others, an idea or a project.
To realise that we can only ever be/bring half is extremely humbling.
To realise that any greatness we achieve in this world comes only by meeting another (person, idea) in the middle removes any chance we ever have of reaching pedestalised fame or recognition by ourselves. And thank sanity for that.
Real freedom comes by understanding that
our power lies in our choices.
And that it is up to us now to choose who & what
we will join with,
as well as what we would like
to create with them.
This small article is an intro into to the following podcast which is too big to tackle alone or through. So my partner Michael & I invite you to join us on a fascinating, sometimes blasphemous & totally unedited road that has been oh so cleverly disguised.
