The Map Is Not the Territory
Don’t confuse the Moon with the finger pointing at it.
A word points to something beyond itself.
It’s not the thing it symbolizes.
Compulsory schooling was created by a few elite men to teach many common men that the map is the territory, that the finger is the Moon itself.
Take the words “HDL” and “LDL.”
HDL is high-density cholesterol, and LDL is low-density cholesterol.
We’re taught that HDL is “good” and LDL is “bad.”
We’re taught to raise our HDL since it’s “good” for us.
But what IS HDL?
Have you smelled it? Tasted it? Seen it? Heard it? Touched it? Weighed it?
Are large HDL particles better than small HDL particles?
Large HDL particles are called HDL2, and small HDL particles are called HDL3.
HDL2 removes more arterial plaque than its smaller counterpart.
We’re taught to raise HDL “levels,” but what about raising its “function”?
Its function is called “HDL efflux capacity.”
“HDL cholesterol efflux capacity is associated with lower incident cardiovascular events,” according to mainstream medicine’s mouthful-of-marbles jargon.
Incidentally, “raising plasma HDL levels will reduce cardiovascular events” was never more than a hypothesis.
The theory was designed to make billions of dollars for the pharmaceutical elite and further their cause of eugenics by killing millions of common people.
Making billions of dollars while killing millions of people — not a bad deal if you’re an unprincipled businessman.
Maybe it’s time to step back inside your body, and escape from the maelstrom of words.
Maybe it’s time to avoid medical gangsters who are so eager to “manage” your cholesterol.
Maybe it’s time to reevaluate the compulsory schooling — at least for your childrens’ sake — that taught you to think in “black” and “white” terms in the first place.
Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) held up a pencil and asked, “How many ends does this pencil have?”
Most people reply, “Two.”
A pencil has either infinite ends or no end at all.
