Power

Human powers is best established as innate, inborn sources of supplying energy — and which sources are capable of magnification, of decrease, of being latent and untapped, and of being de-energized or depowered.

Qualities of power that can be exerted physically and mentally — all of which can be nurtured and enhanced, or caused to be latent or weakened.

The human mind is designed for learning.

It is also obvious that social processes in which everyone is embedded greatly determine what we do and do not learn, and it this factor that accounts for all types of failure to nurture many learning potentials.

People best recognize what they expect to see and often fail in recognizing whatever they do not expect to see.

For example, most do not expect to experience telepathy or intuition or other subtle activities supporting empowerment. And so they might not realize that such activities go on all the time about them. Thus, what we expect to see is visible to us, while the unexpected can.

For example, the socially engineered poor and powerless often do not expect significant increases in wealth and power, and so the subtle wherewithal of empowerment phenomena might remain invisible and meaningless even though empowerment potentials are innate within them.

Power of our Specie

Our species is known to have powers and abilities it doesn’t use, a good part of which fall into the category known as powers of mind — but which could more correctly be referred to as power of power.

It is worthwhile pointing up one such power — the power of discovering and accumulating knowledge and THEN the power of access and jurisdiction over it.

WHAT POWERS DO SOCIETAL POWER STRUCTURES WORK TO CONTAIN, CONTROL, OR SUPPRESS?

the simple reality that the powerful NEED the presence of the powerless in order to have something to have power over, and this specifically in terms of control, authority, and influence.

Thus, ways and means must be discovered and implemented to keep the majority of the powerless as powerless as possible.

In that sense, if the powerless became aware of those ways and means, then significant numbers of the powerless would object to them. So those ways and means must at least be as invisibly subtle as possible, and even quite secret if necessary.

And indeed, it is quite probable that writing and literacy can be secretly managed on behalf of this or that power structure.

EMPOWERMENT ITEMS TO IDENTIFY CONCEPTUALIZE FIVE GENERAL AREAS OF SOCIETAL SECRECY THAT WOULD BE NECESSARY TO PERPETUATE POWERLESSNESS AMONG THE POWERLESS.

As also discussed earlier, the “others” have to be present in order to have power over them. So wherever humans go they will transport with them the techniques of ensuring the presence of the “others.” Logically speaking, in terms of empowerment and depowerment, the others need to be kept in conditions of depowerment, so as to not become empowered enough to become troublesome to the powerful.

So techniques rigged to guarantee their depowered existence range from brute force to elegant and subtle conditioning that can produce what is called “co-operative obedience or submission.”
