The interesting point, that has spooked me, and I have tried to dig into, is the relationship between the real world as we know it, and spirit. I mean, there is a way that spirit interacts with matter. So, how is that? Reading Arthur Canon Doyle (the author of Sherlock Holmes) and his interest for spiritual communication, led me to the hypothesis, that there is a direct connection possible with spirit through prayer and what we define as a media.
In other words, it is possible to discuss with your ancestors and other people who are deceased. But, these ideas are basically absolutely unscientific, and are only based on the experience of individual persons, who were often persecuted and vilified, gnostics of a modern industrialized world.
Anyway, with a deep respect for the followers of mediation, I have turned around a little, and returned to philosophy, to try to dig up some answers there.
I stumbled upon a very wise book by the greek philosopher Theophrastus, who wrote a very distinct and extremely interesting book called Metaphysics. Theophrastus was the pupil of Aristotle, so he is the product of Anaxagoras, Plato, Aristotle. He is not at the same level as Aristotle, Plato and Anaxagoras, but he is a eminent commenter on his predecessors, and he reflects on the ideas that are prevalent in his time. A time of great discussion and progress.
Anyway, he has a lot of real deep insight. First of all, he has this idea, that nature will always strive for good. He admits, that most in nature is evil, but there is always a net percentage of nature that strives for good.
This point is interesting in the sense, that we can see, that there is a huge amount of evil and some goodness in nature. Point is, there is goodness in nature. Often we see nature as something that has to be disciplined and structured to evict the evil in it, and give civilization the opportunity to strife for goodness.
But, the point is valid, and it is really true I believe. There is good in nature.
Now this has to be reflected in political science, because if there is such a thing as goodness in nature, the aim of politics must be to make a frame for the goodness of people to blossom.
I believe, that under the right circumstances, the goodness of people will be enhanced, under the wrong circumstances, the evil of people will be enhanced.
So, the science of politics must be to understand how the toolbox of politics really works and plan a system, that will give the population and the country the best frame to make people grow.
It will be different in different circumstances, but the skill of the philosopher who determines the constitution, will define the happiness of the people who will live in the country.
I think the beauty of the realization in these days where we are hard-pressed by all kinds of demoralization is the fact, that it is possible to create a beautiful and wonderful nation one can live in as a happy and good person.
G-d bless the beauty of life.
