“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood let alone believed by the masses.”~Plato

Plato’s ‘REPUBLIC’, is perhaps the greatest satire ever written. He presents what would seem on the surface the perfect system, a Utopia on a grand scale. Yet upon close inspection and understanding of this screed, what is found is the most profound tyrannical system that could possibly be conceived by the mind of man.

Aldous Huxley wrote a novel that followed in Plato’s form, BRAVE NEW WORLD, that makes the same message, but is easier grasped as it is put in modern language.

Hey, maybe this is a Demonocracy..

The word “believe” has an ancient etymology, and is derived from the Sanskrit. It is a portmanteau, a combination of two short words; “bel” and “eve”. It has gone through countless variations through time, and “bal” and eva” are two of the earliest. When one examines the concepts these words were used for conceptually, we find that this is a dialectical portmanteau, with a tension of the opposites extant in it’s meaning.
“Bel”: has to do with jejune, rebellion, angst and “belligerence”, “bellum” “Bal” {an evil entity}, “ballistic” and a long nomenclature of similar conceptualizations put into a descriptive word.

“Eve”: has to do with nurture, nature, empathy, compassion, love, and understanding, equilibrium… also a lengthily nomenclature.
The original conjunction actually expressed an error of thinking, which comes back to us in more modern times in the form of “True Believer”, irrational certainty, fanaticism, and again associated with ‘bellum’ or war, and destruction. This is why I make an attempt not to use the words ‘believe’, and ‘belief’ when self referencing. I like to use the term I “think” or “it is my opinion”. Or, “beyond reasonable doubt”, or I think this activity is plausible, I think they’re doing this when making a strong judgment of my opinion. [If I do use the term self descriptively, I mean it in the very soft and vague popular sense] Belief is best defined in terms of “faith”, of believing without the need of proofs, as is demanded of many of the major organized religions. And this is where the word again takes on its original connotations, of erroneous thinking.

Here is the etymology of the word “Belief”: In Sanskrit, Bala=explain, describe, force, against one’s will, without being able to help or change things, militarily, troops, young, childish, infantile, not full-grown or developed, newly, rising early, ignorant, simple, foolish, fit for sacrifice, child, fool, simpleton, or any immature living creature. Eva means earth, world, conduct, habit, usage, custom. We derived the word Eve from the Sanskrit Eva. Supposedly, Eve, the wife of Adam, introduced Adam to the religion of sin and degradation. Bel + Eva = Beleva (Belief; Believe). The connotation of Baleva is, “forcing one’s childish, foolish, ignorant, infantile, underdeveloped, sacrifice worthy, earthly habits, conduct, and customs on oneself and others” (preferably on others).

Be wary of what you believe.
