There is something extremely incredible that's going on in this world of ours. Particularly with the human mind and it's interaction with the environment in which it resides. There's coding that's done with computers and software. When that code is written for software, a certain type of code is called language.
Then there's coding that is done to the mind.You can teach a person colors at an early age and even though that person was taught the color black and knows that they are not black, they will believe they're black if everyone around them says that he or she is black.
The same goes for a person who is taught the color white. Although a person knows that they are not the color white, they will believe that they are white if everyone around them says that he or she is white
It's difficult for the experiment to work if the population or specimen can't understand the codes and language. The intentions of a lesson maybe to enable you to be insulted when you hear certain things. What words are considered racists, what words are considered hateful or sexists? Why is knowing this important? No input on how you should respond.
At this point in time, there is so much division. Division in the church. Division in the city. Division in leadership. Division in the country. Division in the world.
We're a bunch of people walking around with our beliefs and values that were giving to us at a young age. We held on to them because it's comfortable to do so. We were programmed. If we didn't hold on to the beliefs we were given, we were reprogrammed. If you don't know any better when someone tells you that "this is just how things are", then it's easy to take on their beliefs as your own until you see or know otherwise. There's no evidence needed as long as it makes sense.
If you were born into poverty, your parents can tell you the real reason you're poor or they can tell you what they've chose to settle with. These reasons can be many including bad decisions, impatience, impulsive behavior, emotional reactions, poor planning, oppression, effects of slavery, systemic rascism, systematic rascism, so on and so forth. For some people born into poverty, you may not qualify for all of the aforementioned reasons, but it's okay. We'll manage.
There's where the programming continues. You will not only draw your on conclusion, but you will also take in what the guys in the neighborhoods have said including the talk at the local barbeshops. The TV Shows and movies may have the greatest impact because of it's ability to be watched several times. Music may have an even greater impact because you have other impoverished people telling you their story and why they were too born in poverty and how it's someone elses fault and not their parents or not themselves.
This program can be cruel and unusual punishment. You're taught all of these things that held a certain people behind, but you're expected to not believe that those same forces exist and do not work against you. Do they or do they not. That energy doesn't go away. Energy is neither created nor destroyed, but changes forms.
