Aging is a demonstration of the law of entropy
There is a way to counteract it by introspection, the practice of meditation
The book secret of the golden flower by Richard Wilhelm is interesting.
Many myths contain the story of a deceiver who mislead the first humans. I advocate, with others, a version where survivors of a previous high tech civilization kept some knowledge and saved part of the technology that gave them an advantage on others who returned to a more primitive way of life in the beginning of the present cycle.
Saying education is the answer is also a false assertion, education has never been available and specialized as today but we also see the ignorance of fundamental things such as knowing how to remain healthy and not abusing nature . It’s a failure, or to use another word a scam, built by some to deceive many. Its obvious in our days that the merchants are behind the educational programs, they push a way of life that will assure them a predominant position.
Who are they ? The initiators and teachers of the techniques that are responsible for the raise of the human race to the present high tech civilization, are said to have been Samaël for the jews, he who convinced Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge but was also the father of Cain as he committed adultery with Eve, and Ahriman for the Persians in another version of history.
Unfortunately for most believers of high technology, there is no solutions in that direction and even if they got very deeply dependent of it that their jobs rely on its perpetuation they have to realize it’s a dead end and disengage from it before it completely fails and leave them without options. Voting for and supporting a lie because it serves your personal interests wont make it become truth.
At the end all lies are openly spoken and the people seem to accept it as normal.
