“Stupid’s” (Latin “stupere”) varied etymologies give wide ranging meanings and words—e.g. Stupefy, Stupor, and Stupendous. Its origin was to be “Amazed” (stunned) by being dulled through shock, as in being wide-eyed and open-mouthed. In C16 it embraced the “slow-witted, foolish,” dull, not intelligent, and ‘dead-alive’ senses. Later came “Selective Stupidity,” as in “having eyes and cannot see”—the source of “blindness to the elephant in the room”—the idea referred to here. It provides Excuses (anything but the Truth) for “Bending” (bring into a curve) Reality into Distortions or leaping into Fantasy (e.g. the Supernatural). Any exit off this course stirs so much disharmony, fear, and difficulty (which, for some is Guilt from Shame or being inadequate in thinking abilities) as to cause Illusions (seeing what is not there and not seeing what is there); Hallucinations (false images or beliefs having nothing to suggest it, outside a disordered mind); “Delirium” (temporary mental disturbance leading to believing ideas opposed to reality); Delusions (believing what is not real and not believing what is real); and Misinterpretations (wrong track, wrong plane of existence, and/or wrong direction). All disarray ones ‘sureness’ of any topic one thought one knew or will later know. A benefit of “going along to get along” with the Crowd is members knowing how hard life is by being stupid and alone. The Weak-minded get necessary relief from “being on the edge” of “going crazy.” Others gain self-esteem assurance from Crowd people more stupid than they. Stupidity is honored since, no matter how stupid the Crowd, what they do works for them. This is despite such being outside of Humanity and shattering ones Individuality. Clear examples show by the incredible degrees of Incompetency, everywhere! Stupid provides excuses to get mere Information and for not doing hard work to gain Knowledge or to self-improve. These give permission for an Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadistic (IHES) mindset to reproduce itself in behaviors–all justified by them being wrapped in Willful Ignorance and because “everybody” does it. To by-pass Courage is to “Escape” from Reality, as their role models have done. There is too much inner turmoil to leave the Crowd and then to take on the hard work of being Self-Reliant in discovering and developing ones Talent for application to ones Mission.
Besides, for good reason, they dread competition. By avoiding thinking skills—always using the excuse of: “I’m too busy”—they complain, as Supernaturals, of people not relating to them—people using hard and big words in obscure sentences are “boring.” The same applies to books. Instead, Stupid is easy—e.g. enabling one to assess a situation without the taskmaster of Spiritual Elements Essences to consider. The Crowd’s “noise” and “commotion”–like the empty wagon making greater sounds than when full–is well suited since the Stupid cannot tolerate Quiet. The Crowd makes things easy with preconceived fixed notions to insert according to wishes, while ignoring or rejecting any contrary signs, implicit indicators, or contrary facts. Thus, thoroughly Stupid or IHES things done have Crowd backing as being “noble,” since it follows their patterns. Increasing stupidity equates to increasing Crowd loyalty. These “Wax-heads” must avoid the hot Sun of the Truth and Reality.
A Crowd favorite is Stereotyping persons, places, things, styles, or events—i.e. gist definitions, oversimplified and thrust into tight pigeon-holes which give no adjustment or individualizing “wiggle room”. The Crowd is “Conditioned” not to research to ‘know’ but to “believe and have faith” in what is read or told them—biases/prejudices “Framed” with “Non-Essence” Secondary/Tertiary Qualities. Then, these fantasies are “Halo Effect” painted—i.e. the picking out of one or two characteristics, traits, or features–based on Unexamined Assumptions one has been socialized into–for broad-stroking general identifying images. These false images and how such people are likely to behave, one might be told, are to be associated with, say, dark skin color. Stereotypes serve White Supremacists well in their Mind Controlling business of shaping Stupid people’s thoughts with “Sound Bites” of ready cues having instant recognition. The Mass Media “Re-Enforcer” is focused on generating entertaining “Excitement” by Trinkets (e.g. Flashing Light Gadgets), Trivia (e.g. gossip, rumors), and whatever keeps one as a Superficial Thinker–and thus “Stupid”—i.e. having eyes and cannot see the “what it is”).
