Voices in Your Head

There are many voices in your head but only one of them is you. Adopt fantasy free thinking the and voice in your mind which is you, starts to take over. Without engaging in fantasy it is hard to be wrong about anything. At the very least, a person’s chances of being right are optimized. There is a trade off.  Happiness and fantasy free living are not compatible.

How is it that a person takes up fantasy free thinking. Say this to yourself. “I acknowledge and accept that uncertainty is the way of the world. Life on earth is a dominance and subservience contest. In order to survive, like every other living thing, human beings only live if they dominate and consume other living things.”  Fantasy is the only way to escape looking at a timeless dilemma. Every person wants to think of himself as a kind and peaceful entity who hurts not man nor beast. However, we all survive by killing and eating other animals. The land we stand on was taken by belligerence. Fantasy is the way to deny these basics of existence.

So, total uncertainty is accepted, what next? If you are seriously able to deal with it, you will discover that many things that are popularly believed are not true.  You may have trouble finding things that are true.

Economics is the study of survival in the secular world. The secular world is what is escaped with fantasy. The harsh system is still in place even if you pretend it is not.  Jesus offered an alternative way to escape. Jesus had a way to migrate between the secular and spiritual worlds. He taught others how to do the same. The voice that emerges as fantasy is discarded is like a direct phone line to the spiritual world.

Most people believe in God. Some believe there is no God. Others are unsure or confused. Personally I can feel the presence of a spiritual world. I do not believe Jesus was God but I do believe what he taught everyone. Jesus could go spiritual and was teaching others how to do it. Yes, I believe in God but I know almost nothing about God. Neither does anyone else.

In dealing with harshness, the spiritual world is a better option than engaging in fantasy. With fantasy, reality catches up with you from time to time as life goes on and just one more time in the end.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
