The mormon tower.

I can see off in the distance in my mind a picture of the emotional context of the mormon church. I’m going to paint it for you.

It looks just like the lord of the rings tower. A giant structure reaching towards the sky, with a society gathered around it in a circle. But, the L. of the rings movie didn't have it right; there would never be just one great wizard in the tower; there would be an entire Order. There would be the grand wizard, his complementary mindmen, and their complementary mindmen followers/disciples; there would be several levels to this hierarchy and each circle (level) would have larger and larger numbers and the disciples less able. At the bottom would be the grand wizards small army - millions of followers. Stupid. Blind. And trusting. Each tower would represent a different order, and on the great stretch of the continent, there would be many, many different towers. Each tower holds a different grand master who has their followers living in a particular emotional reality that he has created with its particular gods and conceptions of the meaning in life.

They want control. Because they know the mind, the emotions, and the soul they become wizards, or knowers of the mind and emotions. They intuitively use their knowledge of the power of fear, death, very emotional feelings like sex, familial and communal ties, sacrifice, etc. to control others. They have great power, but because they seek to rule over others and not let others rule themselves they are ultimately limited. They can only pull certain types of people out of reality (emotional types), and they place onto their minds an emotional context that has nothing to do with every day life, designating certain actions to mean something far greater than they really are. Basically, they create emotional myths that their followers live and die in.

Each tower would be a type of an emotional generator that would attract a certain type of person from the greater civilization. They will never be able to control the entire society - they don't want to. They want the weak, those that are trusting, and cannot think for themselves, and then they raise their children for the them, generation by generation. They get all of them to look towards the leaders, telling them to never even move or blink without their approval, direction, and designation. All of their followers look like them, talk like them, fuck like them, and they (followers) never stop talking about them (leaders), or the paradigm they (leaders) created for them. It is evil, because they use the good and the truths of our emotional selves to get others to only look at them, never telling the people to trust themselves and their personal particular capacities, to be their own self, extending with their particular capacities to lift up the entire civilization towards the greater good. No, they never reorder the entire society, lifting up the whole, they just have their few, stupid followers looking up at them all day long, chanting, singing, and worshiping them. I remember last year there was a birthday party for the prophet. There were over 20,000 people there, and the news did an interview with some of the guests. These guests were literally weeping as they explained how grateful they were to be there. At his birthday party. Crazy. These wizards wield more power over the mind than you can possibly imagine.

Isn't it interesting how the leaders tell the followers not to trust in reason and science?

If it was all about the truth, then they would have to embrace reason and science, because it is a part of reality that exists within us and outside of us.

"All of their followers look like them, talk like them, fuck like them, and they (followers) never stop talking about them (leaders), or the paradigm they (leaders) created for them"

They have such a powerful hold on the mind. When I was in it faithfully, I didn't even realize how much control they had.

Excellent post :-)

They have no idea what they're talking about. How long does it take to figure out what the proper role is of each part of our selves, to know how to govern one's self with reason, emotions, and the spirit? You'd think after 200 years of this shit, they'd know. They don't. I've had professors at BYU that have been studying all this shit heavily for fucking years that still have no idea. Oh, sure they give off little tidbits here and there like always, but nothing fundamentally sound. But the truth is they don't want you to know, cause if you did, you'd never have to go to them and ask them how you should live your life.

If they knew, it would be obvious. It would be simple, easy to follow, and effortlessly successful. They would never have to 'convert' people, because people would want to follow it. If you have to doubt, you don't have to doubt.

I remember giving talks in sacrament about denying reason's role. How fuckin' clueless.

I think that is the scary part. I remember doing all kinds of crazy shit on my mission like talking to large crowds in front of a bank or on a bus. How fuckin' nuts. What person in their right mind would talk with a dumbass, youth dressed in a full business suit in the middle of the summer heat raising his arms in front of 50 people at a time? Only the fuckin' completely clueless, or 'the pure in heart' who are so fucked up they'll latch onto anything.

I never converted an intellectual, or successful member in the community. Never. And that is all I went after to try and help out the branches I was 'serving' in.

I look back on the conclusions about people and reality I made in this emotional reality, and I can't believe it. I was trained to think of people as future members and think that my entire life's purpose was to bring as many people into the 'fold' as possible, and the highest joy was to be with a being I've never met in a place I've never been in a time i've never experienced. To think that the importance of life has been reduced to whether or not I visited a family I don't even really like for 20 minutes a month.

I don't know how they can get past this. I hope some day that they can get to a point where they enjoy people for who they are, but I doubt that will happen.

The leaders have them so tightly wound around their finger they can't even have normal relationships without wanting to 'convert' every single one of their friends and family. What a mind job.
