There is another kind of control. In the last post on control, that kind of control is maintained through the illusory power of fear. But where does the lust for power and the desire to create fear come from? Insanity.
Very similar to the two trees in the garden of Eden, where one tree granted eternal life, and the second tree allowed mankind to decide what is right and what is wrong, there isn’t a middle road where God could allow another set of beings to live eternally while defining law. Adam and Eve had to be thrust from the garden because eternal life on top of the right and responsibility to set the standard for good versus evil would have caused eternal damnation for mankind. Adam and Eve had proven they did not hold the same objectives as God, they became insane.
Today the same problem exists. Free thinkers, people who believe in equality of justice, people who want to build everyone around them, people who desire peace, people who want to work, these people cannot understand why such evil exists in modern society. The corruption of every institution of society is sickening. We cannot understand why anyone would want to corrupt those institutions. Neither can we understand why those institutions want to remain corrupt. To what end?
Unfortunately, there isn’t a rational end. The end is death, desolation, and destruction. The end is insanity itself. It’s an eternal battle. A battle between good and evil; justice and injustice; moral and immoral; eternity and death.
This is the battle we face daily, and it’s not a battle that exists only in our physical and human experience. The universe quakes as the human experience causes upheaval. Light shines and dims as humans progress and regress. What we see, experience, and do, has eternal impact.
Don’t try to address or comprehend insanity. God himself could not and cannot coexist with insanity, and neither can we.
