Humanity is characterised by imagination

Why is it that we have monarchs and politicians, repression, a lack of tolerance of specific ideologies/ genders/sexuality and money?

There were no politicians voting on legislation prescribing the way we must live, no monarchs aristocratically ruling over us who we must acknowledge as our superiors.

Myths, and belief of them, are what drive and divide humanity

Laws, class, and human rights are all fictionalised creations imagined by few and spread to the masses

You could never convince a monkey to give you a banana by promising him limitless bananas after death, in monkey heaven. Only humans can believe such fictions — Yuval Harari, Sapiens

The most important things in the world exist only in our imaginations

Gender inequality exists not because having a womb disqualifies you from participation or leadership positions; it exists because we believe it does. If we evict those thoughts from the collective consciousness of humanity gender inequality would evaporate overnight

Kings and Queens would have disappeared overnight had their subjects stopped believing in their eminency but a whole system was in place which led to cognitive dissonance preventing change

It would be too painful, both mentally and physically, to face up to the inadequacies in our thinking so instead we ignore them to protect ourselves

In order to profit we must tweak our mindset to take advantage

Laws, orders and myths prevent us from realising our potential

Myths maintain the status quo

To achieve anything of significance we must escape the stigma of inherited wisdom

Laws of physics may be universally applicable but human disposition is in a constant state of flux. If you’re not effectively altering your world you’re subscribing to something which was implemented by others

Doing or believing something because it is the way it has always been done is the most dangerous trait adopted by humanity.

Possibilities for life are only inhibited by a lack of imagination or subscription to arbitrary myths that affect every aspect of our lives

There are two types of people in life — creators and consumers

The beauty of human consciousness is that you get to choose what you want to be
