It seems to me that for many, the proving of our world as being concave is the only goal. Everyone wants to prove their theory, and this goes for flat earthers and those who believe the scholastic story as well. Yet, I’m right and you’re wrong rarely ever leads to anything constructive. To me that personal discovery of the concave world was just the starting point of the journey. No one taught me about the concave earth, I had to figure it out myself though research, observation, and contemplation. Once I figured that part out, the next step of the journey became far more important.
So if you want to tell others and convince them that this idea is the correct theory, perhaps there is another way to go about this. I find this much more satisfying than creating some experiment that proves it beyond any doubt, a goal which may not even be possible. For proof is the bedfellow of belief. And belief is the death of a thinking mind. When one believes something, it ends the journey of discovery. It’s as if the mind says, “ok, that’s enough. I now believe it so any contradictory evidence is no longer accepted.” We see this almost as a goal of certain religions. Science believers as well. I think we’ve all seen the popular saying “I believe in science.” Well, science isn’t a belief system folks!, so where does that come from? Not understanding, that’s for certain.
We are all guilty of this path of thinking, scientists, mathematicians, the religious, even atheists are believers, like it or not. They believe there is no God, but have no concrete proof, just a lack of convincing pro-God evidence. And once they’ve convinced themselves there is no God, the mind stops letting in any information to the contrary. Just like their opponents. I always get a kick out of those silly God vs. no God debates. Creation vs. evolution. Do they really think they will convince their adversary, or even the audience to drop their beliefs and pickup a new one which is diametrically opposed? A true road to nowhere if there is one.
I include myself with these groups as well. Fending off belief to find the higher path, understanding, isn’t easy. Belief often creeps up and nips us in the heel, much like the old viper story. We must be ever vigilant to keep our minds open to knew possibilities regardless of how cocksure we may be.
So are we are just fooling ourselves in this pursuit?
Back to the topic. Perhaps, instead of scientific proof of a concave earth, there is another way for the theory to be more convincing and understandable to the natural mind. I think there is. And that is to look at the implications of a concave world. How it relates to our other beliefs and hopefully, understandings of the world we live in.
This opens the door to just about anything. How does a concave world fit in with other areas of study? For science, we plot the data into a new model and we come up with an entirely different result. The same can be said for religion. Politics as well. And especially history…his story.
To me, the focus on how the heavens are conceived, built, and work, is seemingly a futile path. Interesting for sure, but that’s all. How can anyone ever prove such a thing? No one can go there. You can’t fly up into space and take a picture of the earth and say this is how it is, even though NASA has tried to do that repeatedly for the last 60 years or so. Not only is this not proof, it isn’t even possible once you understand the challenges faced with such an endeavor. I think we’ve all tried to explain the NASA deception to little or no avail. It just makes us look like kooks to those who can’t understand what we’ve already learned.
Understanding is the key to it all. Once we can see how this affects every aspect of life, future, past, and present, we can come up with a myriad of ways to show why this theory must be true.
So what are your thoughts?
What are the implications of a concave world in your life?
How would things be different if you were taught this from the start?
What if everyone was taught this instead of the spinning globe in a never ending universe?
And most important, what lies on the other side?
