WHAT IS SELF-HELP?

Look in the mirror. Like the sight? Then why do you give others the fright?

The above line was taken from Life Love Light & Loss- Mystic Poetry. (Link below)


Self-help is helping yourself: stop feeling sorry for yourself, stop expecting the world to give you when you haven't given anything first, self-help is keeping busy, helping others, a civic duty.


We live in the age of many "isms": consumerism, feminism, sexism, racism, political correctness has led to transgender madness to such an extent that arch-feminists like Germaine Greer are saying a man can't become a woman simply by hormonal treatment and bits chopped off as they can't have periods or the menopause. Time to pause? No the PC mafia in government, the media and education, want more fascist control over what we say or think or do.

Generate real genuine vibes and excitement

This decade, referred to as the tens, teens, tenties and even the tenners, the twentytens, will become a watershed in the age of stupid. What this modern obession with social media, PC madness and consumerism has led to is the most lonely and depressed society in living memory. Things were never this bad even 10 years ago, let alone 20, 30 or 40 years earlier. Before the loneliest twat on earth thrust Facebook- Fakebook- onto our screens, we all had sensible lives. We talked with neighbours, we had social skills, we had communication skills, Zuckerburg and the mates he conned out when it got big, have turned their needs and wants into a global prostitution of stupidity, fame and dumbing down of intelligence. This has led to countless suicides, murders, break-ups and a chemical imbalance in our brains. Where are the keyboard warriors? They are busy putting up stupid photos of coming out of the shower half-naked (then complaining harassment when a bloke comments on their sex-appeal or lack of it) and counting how many fake likes and fake friends they have on Fakebook.

Close the deal and live each day as your last.

Recognising that most of us are lonely these days is the first step. We are bombarded with fake love and lust on dating sites, we are so supid that we must have the latest smartphones and gadgets made by Chinese wage slaves, our kids are getting even more self-obsessed. The rays and radiation generated by phones, electrical appliances, mobile phone masts, eletricity grids and microwaves are all affecting our health. Mass migration has led to mass over-development. The south-east of England is now the most overcrowded region in Europe, thousands are dying weekly due to pollution and the NHS not being able to cope but keyboard warriors pick on easy targets. 

Welcome to the age of loneliness, depression and mood swings (and thats just the blokes, the women are worse!)

Philosophy and self-help by Kenton Elbert Junior:

What is philosophy?

 

Although there are many different branches of philosophy, philosophy of the mind, ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of religion, to name but a few in a vast sea of subject matter, one thread holds all of these sub divisions together. The noun philosophy or philosophical means the study of behaviour within our own and other environments and the search for wisdom related to the subject in matter.

So in brief the meaning of the word philosophy originates from the ancient Greek words, philo (love) and sophos (wisdom). When an individual studies the subject of philosophy they wish to gain or at lease gain a better understanding on why and how people behave from both a subjective and objective point of view and in gaining this knowledge be better cognitively adapted to understand the possible meaning of life and its concept. The philosophical approach is therefore a practice of principles or beliefs that may offer guidance throughout our life at times of anxiety or confusion. The philosophical approach can offer answers and clarity within what may appear at the time to be an unresolvable situation.

Generally there are three sub divisions within philosophy, although these three can be broken down into as many other divides as an individual may wish. The three main philosophical schools of thought are most commonly divided into natural philosophy, moral philosophy and metaphysical philosophy which I will go into greater deaths later in this course.

What is wisdom?

 

Wisdom, without taking into the religious connotations of the meaning is the quality or state of being wise in whatever context it maybe applied to. Generally knowledge is what is perceived to be right in an objective sense. Wisdom is the right way of accumulating knowledge which is to be used to carry out correct judgement and give clarity of insight. Many words can relate to the term wisdom, some of which include, knowledge, compassion, forgiveness and empathy to others being some definitions. From a psychological point of view wisdom can be as an integration of knowledge, life experience and an understanding of ourselves and the environment around us which helps the individual be tolerant of the uncertainties and dilemmas that we each face during our lifetime. 

True wisdom it could be said brings a balance in an uncertain world and direction in which we each take in life and confers a sense of balance.

People who are generally perceived as wise, for example, in religious context, a swami, guru, Buddhist monk or spiritual healer that many people turn to in various cultures are seen to share certain personality traits and cognitive states of mind, such as optimism that problems when studied can be solved and being able to remain in a calm state of continuousness in demanding or challenging situations. Although these character traits can be attributed to that of a wise individual, other factors should be taken into account for example, foresight with the ability to see the bigger picture of a situation and not just the immediate circumstance and introspection, to seek enlightenment from within, not just without contribute to what being wise and its definition is.

So to summarise such a broad concept of 'what is wisdom? It is the human ability to judge, think and act using life knowledge, common sense, and insight along side having empathy with others and understanding the cognitive functioning of the human and natural mind, for as some believe, it is not just man than has the capacity of wisdom, but also the animal kingdom, of which we are an integral part of and work in unison with

What is truth?

 

Many people have different ideas on what constitutes truth and what truth is. The following outline is from a subjective point and is my opinion of what truth is and how I understand its meaning.

The truth should be a consistent fact or set of facts, not false in any knowledge sense and remain consistent to the characteristics of a belief or idea such as religious practice or scientific knowledge. It should show loyalty to an idea or friend, being honest trustworthy in principle and in accordance with that set of practices or pattern of understanding, being or reflecting the genuine nature of something. A trustworthy person can be described true in opinion, honest, honourable and upright.

Truth may take time to prove and therefore only certain beliefs can be absolute after many centuries of study and observation and scientific research to prove what is thought to be truth to actually become fact. Many people believe that religious doctrines that scholars spend a lifetime studying to be the absolute truth of god, yet there is no proof to clarify such thought nor indeed any proof that a God even exists, yet still many people observe what is dictated in the Bible or Koran as the definitive truth and question it without doubt as the word of their God.

Truth to myself is a simple factor, it is the freedom of speaking what one believes is true, a true statement or proposition that is without intentional falsehood or misguiding information.

Again what truth represents has many variants according to cultural, religious practices. One truth could be perceived as another man’s deception.

To conclude, for me a truth is something that has to be proven by scientific fact or centuries of study or sincerity. Not just based on a statement made by someone without the ability of a genuine foundation on what they claim their truth to be. Truth is to be found in logical thinking and subjective analyse, not by repeating what others claim to be the truth such as can be found in many religious doctrines and those scholars who claim them as absolute truth with nothing more than a Chinese whisper of evidence.

What is "good"?

 

The word good can mean many things depending on the context in which it is used.

In my personal opinion good is being able to deal with a situation in a rational and logical manner, or able to use something within that context to the best of ones ability.

Having the necessary qualities to carry out specific duties to a high proficient standard. Someone or something that is able to produce results or conditions to a required standard.

Socially good can mean an individual who behaves in a correct manner and obey or adhere to social accepted norms of behaviour, not to act in a socially unacceptable way in public, for example,

from a religious point of view a good person is usually perceived as one tries to live by a moral code of that particular set of beliefs or organisation.

While some may see the code set out in many religious doctrines as a good example of how to lead a good life others my see this as an untruth. In some peoples perspective God is immoral, contradictory, homophobic which if followed as dictated in many religious scriptures can be evil and corruptive and governs ones life without freedom of choice and social balance leading to war and destruction. This is not good. Again Good is much of a subjective thing, and what maybe seen as good for one individual can be contrary for another, depending on culture, upbringing, demographics and personal cognitive understanding.

Can goodness be taught to us?

 

This is a big question and there are many and varied answers which correlate to it.

In my personal opinion I think that peoples behaviour can be modified through the guidance and instruction and an individuals characteristics can be transformed through virtues instruction and good moral examples within the society and culture that influence them.

Some philosophers reject the idea that human nature has an inherent inclination towards goodness. Hsun Tsu for example proclaimed that people were born with an evil mind and that if the mind received correct guidance and training these evil traits could be controlled and in turn may lead to goodness. He advocated that the mind was bad by nature but he did agree that personal experiences and interactions could possibly help to illuminate to a degree some of the inherent cognitive evil and be cured of this evil and embody human goodness.

From another angle the philosopher Meniscus believed that humans are born good and it is the situations and surroundings that corrupt the mind and cause individuals to react inn an evil way. No one acts in an evil manner unless first exposed to what is deemed to be immoral and again as in many areas of philosophy what is seen as immoral in one culture may not apply to that of someone from a different upbringing and culture. 

Each of us as we grow we learn from parents, peers, teachers, TV and the society in general what is right and what is wrong and it is a subjective matter which path we choose to take. Goodness I feel can most defiantly be something that can be taught as is can be said the same of evil, an individual can make their own decisions from the information humans attain to make a conscious choice of what type of character they turn out to be, good or bad or even a combination of both of these factors.

I would like to conclude this section by quoting from Plato. He said that people are representations of things here on this earth and therefore are born without being either good or evil, but neutral of these factors. It is impossible for an individual to be truly evil because humans only represent the ideal evil. Nobody knows what evil is, evil is what we encounter throughout our life.

One may be perceived as a good person by a cult who beheads people in the name of a non existent God, while those who believe in this non existent entity could see this act as a symbol of virtue and respect such foul actions.

Can goodness be taught? Yes in some respects I believe it can but goodness can at the same time represent evil when viewed by a distant on looker who’s ideas reflect others disapproved notions.

The importance of free will

Free will gives the individual the choice of doing something because they want to do it, not because they feel under pressure to do so or are forced into an action by something or someone else. Free will is important as it encourages the individual to make their own decisions in life, rather than being controlled by a collective thought, God or simply fate, in having free will we are able to be self determined giving the individual the ability to choose the course their life will take and the consciousness that these choices lead to are not predetermined.
 Some psychologists use the concept of free will to express the idea is not a passive reaction to forces but that individuals actively responds to internal and external forces. The term soft determinism is used to detail this position, where people do have a choice but their behaviour is always subject to some form of biological or environmental influence.

I believe that there is no such thing as absolute free will, rather a broad spectrum of individual choices that we are given to choose from. If free will was absolute surely chaos would follow. We each can make our own choices but free will is not something that we have total control over as human beings, we must adhere to certain laws and standards.

To conclude free will is the idea that as individuals we have a degree of freedom to choose how we behave, we are self determined as individuals. In accordance to freewill a person is responsible for their own actions and the consequences that these actions may lead to.

More of Kenton's philosophy

Virtue

 

The virtue theory is the role in which the character and the virtues that individual character embodies for determinative or evaluating what is perceived to be general ethical behaviour or accepted by cultural modes of conduct,

In virtue ethics the morality of a person or collectives actions are based on the character of the individual, for example, a virtuous person will naturally act in an ethical manner towards others and within collective situations. It is not purely enough to carry out an act that is of benefit to another, the act itself must come from a good and righteous character from within the self.

Most of the virtue theories derive their inspiration from Aristotle who declared that a true virtuous person is an individual who has ideal innate character dispositions. He declared that these traits derive from natural internal tendencies, but need to be nurtured in order to become established characteristics of that person. In his teachings he declared that a true virtuous person who is kind and shows empathy across a vast array of of situations, being accumulated over the period of a lifetime, so in this sense virtue ethics are a personal thing rather than an action based theory, it looks

at the virtue or moral character of an individual carrying out an action, rather than at he ethical duties and rules, or the consequential outcomes such as rewards or recognition in relation to particular actions.

Most virtue theorists would claim that to be a virtuous individual they must at act in a virtuous way as result of a rational thought leading to a correlating action, rather than say by acting by pure

instinct alone,

In conclusion it is almost impossible to summarise the virtue theory or put it in to a particular context because in reality there is no common set of virtues all individuals adhere too, some from different historical times and cultural societies show significant variations of what counts as or is the virtue theory.

Can the future be foreseen?

 

This is a rather ambiguous question in nature, for in some situations the answer is yes to a degree and in other instances the answer is no, dependent on the context in which it is used.

As individuals we can see the basic route each day, month, year and even our lives may take as these are choices we make ourselves and so in that respect we have a rough idea of what the future may hold from a subjective cognitive perspective.

To see the future or as it is known by parapsychologists as precognitions an ability to use psychic knowledge in order to predict it in advance of it actually occurring. Psychics call this method of being able to see future events 'second sight'. For it to be true second sight it should not be induced by scrying, drugs, trance or other artificial means.

Unfortunately throughout recorded history no one individual has been able to predict descriptions of future events in a regular pattern, if an individual could do this they could be at true visionary or psychic. Baring in mind that there is no factual or scientific evidence that such a person exists now or in the past suggests that people or groups who claim to posses such abilities are exaggerations or urban legend mythology.

I do know that tomorrow I will likely awake and proceed with my daily tasks but anything more such as predicting a major earthquake or disaster is unlikely to be true or just luck of chance and nothing more than that, unless in the future more scientific evidence is provided such stories are meaningless or lay in religious scriptures which have no eventual proof whatsoever.

As human beings we can remember the past and can try to predict future events based on the past, but we cant perceive or foresee any event until it has actually happened.

What is a person?

 

In ordinary language the word is often used synonymously with 'human being' this is incorrect as being a person does not or should not always correlate directly with the word person.

In order to try and answer this question is a somewhat complex and not as simple as some may perceive. Are there living entities that are not human beings but could still be classified as a person?

An example could be primates or gorillas. There is indeed evidence that some of the great apes have very sophisticated cognitive intelligence, perhaps sophisticated enough for them to be counted as a person. Other examples could include dolphins or whales who show in some ways an equal intelligence to human species. Although not scientifically proven but still possible, alien lifeforms could constitute as a person, should alien lifeforms exist.

For centuries it was accepted that person and human being were equivalent terms in meaning. This has now fundamentally changed over the last few decades by modern philosophers such as John Harris and Peter Singer who amongst others have challenged the traditional concept and understanding of person hood and having personality.

Peter Singer claims that a person is any kind of being which has the capacity for enjoying experiences, interacting with other on a social level and have preferences effect the course of there life. John Harris claims any being that is capable of valuing their own and other life and surroundings can be classified as a person. This not only incorporates a vast group of beings but excludes some human beings for example new born children who lack self awareness and adults with cognitive abnormalities such as brain injuries, dementia and psychological illness in some cases.

So what does it mean to be a person? There is no one answer to this complex question to demonstrate a straightforward answer. But what being a person should consist of in my personal view is compassionate and caring behaviour to other people and species and respect for the environment around us.
