Have we gotten the entire world figured out? Do we have all the crooks and cranny’s of life mapped out in great detail? Though I wish so full heartedly we did I must honestly say we do not. If this is the case then, why have we treated our minds as if we do? When one studies thought or philosophy we must flip the pages deep into history. Why do we not look towards the philosophers of today? Could it possibly be that there are none to be found in the chaos of modern society? I see a great issue with the way the world operates today. While we are busy burying our noses in textbooks and notes on data we have slid the book of thought under the table. While we have continued the efforts to advance our knowledge in the field of concrete data, we have forgotten to place the same efforts to developing thought. The world of today is as wild and crazy and in trouble as it has ever been. Why have we chosen now to lock our minds in the coffin of lost skills? Now, is the greatest time to continue developing our ideas of the world. We have come to a point where we rely too heavily on others to feed us our thoughts. We no longer value an individual mind. A collective mind works well for sharing ideas but where does new thought come from? Today the ones who come up with the new ideas dictate how we think with out us even knowing it. They are in control. The words and ideas they bring to life are passed onto us through the various channels and mediums of media that exist. They give us options though, two or three. This way we can all fall into a category. If we all find familiarity with one of the groups then we will all be happy. Sure we disagree with the other group but that is what they want us to do. We are in a category THEY designed disagreeing with another category THEY designed. We are in truth fighting our self. We must not stand up then against the opposing view but against the creator of the view. This is how progression will be made. The rapid pace of life has tricked us into believing their predisposed truths. These are not real truths. The only real truths are the ones we create. Let today be the today you recognize the trap we have been placed in. We have been ineffectively fighting our self for years. For every step we take forward, we in turn take one back. Let today be the day you realize we must create our own thoughts and beliefs. Do not fall victim to the handcrafted system they have created. We have a choice to be oppressed by believing or free by creating. Let us create. This is our time to be the thinkers. Let us inspire masses to continue the trend and shape the world in our own way. The philosophers of yesterday were important to their time, the philosophers of today are of great importance to you and I, but the philosophers of tomorrow will be of great service to millions and millions of souls to come.
