  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. Sociopathy of power The world is plunging into a selfish, marketing, deadly sociopathy of power. People unite into groups of egoism, egoism unites them, billions of people think about themselves, each group builds its own system. An epic blockbuster of facial lies and self-deception. She collides with another system of egoism, the war of egoism in the eternal struggle for absolute power. Selfishness returns humanity to the child's consciousness of revenge, thus the world is ruled by childhood fears and childhood traumas. 2. The embedded logic of egoism, the promotion of marketing theories of hypotheses, ideologies and opinions - these are all legal drugs of apophenia and simulacrum. 3. Humanity is entangled in the web of its own egoism, people get entangled in their own self-deception, where they manipulate clip thinking, the blindness of cynical skepticism, where they react not to truth, but to social status, each thread of selfishness was formed by the line of human instinct, billions of vicious threads of selfishness, transform everything into nonsense, and lead the herd instinct to a dead end, collective, mass consciousness. 4. Where does time lead us and how deep is the black hole of illusions, time takes us to another dimension, everything seems exotic and an unknown world, a world that becomes native, and life is like a wondrous dream of illusions. Time confuses or creates discoveries for us. The biology of the body reveals a philosophical lesson for us under the yoke of time. It seems that time leads nowhere, like a compass that moves in a circle. In a hurry, we make a lot of mistakes and unconscious sins, the time machine accumulates dirt. 5. Poetry lives in the present. Poetry is the value of what is in this life. 6. Contemporary thinking in contemporary art, an associative collage of banality, turns into an empty formality, expressed in an ugly imagination, where people try to surpass their own selves in a vicious imagination. 7. Nature adorns life. 8. The universe is so eloquent in its colors poeticises reality, romanticizes nature. There is no more beautiful prose writer than the nature of the universe. 9. Nature is a dream of great and greater. The heart becomes infinitely free and the soul becomes gigantic when we are in nature. We become part of the great. We become a part of ourselves when we are in nature, we feel a kinship with it. Nature is romance in which we realize everything and everything, all the pettiness and insignificance of what we feel in the city, we become ourselves. 10. Various martial arts schools of thought and philosophy, including the style of the drunken master. Discipline and training in truth, the only path to enlightenment. The power of thought breaks stones and bricks. They fight with the power of thought, they fight for the power of truth, others at the expense of tactics, and still others at the expense of deceit. Fights for absolute power over people. Recruiting students, universities of theories and academies of paradigms. Martial schools of philosophy, all kinds of martial arts thinking, all fight for the title of dogma. Since the truth is fragmented and forms its own flora and fauna of the evolution of thinking. Some strive for divine truth, others add GMO spices of instincts, vices and selfishness. 11. Too much truth is the style of a drunken master, intoxicated by the sweet wine of philosophical poetry, piercing ages, the comical third eye of philosophy, the power of irony and sarcasm of which will break the stone of stupidity and the ice of indifference. Developed dexterity of thought, manipulates the fighting techniques of aphorisms, and philosophical poems, and quotes from a drunken master, an elusive prose writer of aphorisms, leaving no chance. Loneliness enhances the power of the blow, and the fiery, dragon's breath of truth, the depth of thought, piercing consciousness and subconsciousness, piercing the infinity of time.
